MUST HAVE: Top salvo buy – London Underground luggage racks

2 Feb

It’s nice to see larger organizations jumping on the upcycle / re-purpose wagon, and not just individuals. I would love to have a couple of those as coat racks. (If you have been reading here regularly, you know I have a coat rack / hook obsession ๐Ÿ™‚

If you grew up in London and were a regular commuter on the Metropolitan Line, you may well remember their high back seats and capacious 1960โ€™s luggage racks with umbrella hooks. When the trains were decommissioned last year the clever folk over at The London Transport Museum decided to rescue the racks, scrub them up and are offering a limited number in three different sizes. Available from March, you can own a little piece of London history in your own homeโ€ฆ

What a novel shelving solution! Made from aluminium they are super lightweight but sturdy. Perfect if you need a little extra storage in the hallway or kitchen. Other memorabilia includes a reproduction of the original 1960โ€™s poster that introduced the newly modernised line 50 years agoโ€ฆ

and not sure Iโ€™d want to be reminded of the tube this much in my own home, but made to order cushionsโ€ฆ
