The London Underground is a bit like Marmite, you either love it or hate it. Most of us just grin and bear it in the morning rush hour, so why are the symbols of The Tube so iconic? Maybe because they’ve become synonymous with London’s soul. It’s been called the veins of the city and we do all rely on it at some point to take us home. From Harry Beck’s iconic map to the signature roundel, let’s look at what brands are paying homage to the underground with some fantastic ideas for the home.
1. Dip-Dyed Side Table from Anthropologie, £268 | 2. Metropolitan Line Luggage Racks from London Transport Museum Shop, £75.00 | 3. Bottle Opener Fridge Magnet from Suck UK, £13.99 | 4. London Tube Map Bedding Set from Argos, £14.99 | 5. Black and White Prints from London Transport Museum Shop, £45.00
