We have an exclusive range of chairs which are beautifully upholstered in some of the classic moquettes of our time. They’d look perfect as statement pieces in a bedroom or home office. They could also be bought in groups to furnish an entire dining room. And if your favourite chairs need sprucing up? No problem. We also can arrange for your chairs to be upholstered too.

After World War 2, London needed a new design of bus for the future that awaited the capital. The RT - also known as the ‘Regent III’ was a majestic beast with rear platform entry, a welcoming frontage and a functional but comfortable interior. It was somehow more grand but less friendly than its successor - the ‘Routemaster’. The RT moquette was designed in 1946 and carries red, black, green and brown stripes in a tartan style. Highly durable, it hid the dirt and grime of London brilliantly for decades, it’s now available to gleam in pristine beauty in your home.

Care Instructions

Moquette is super-duper tough. If it gets a bit dirty, a good firm brush should do the job... For something really stubborn try some carpet cleaner. If in doubt - drop us a line.
