Many of my overseas friends speak of how charming travelling on 'The Tube' in London is (commuting on it with the mice isn't quite so charming, but let's gloss of that!) so I think they are going to love these luggage racks that go on sale from February at the London Transport Museum. The original 1960's luggage racks are from Metropolitan Line trains (the purple line) which have now been decommissioned to make way for new trains. So, this is the perfect opportunity to own a piece of original London history instead of those terrible tee-shirts sold in stalls all the way down Oxford St. (Know the ones? Yeah, kinda bad, huh?!) The racks have been cleaned and adapted for use around the home, shown here in four of my favourite ways. It's fun to think that these racks have been carrying briefcases, shopping bags, suitcases, coats and who knows what else for almost 50 years! Perhaps it's time they helped add some London style to your home? Which way would you use the luggage racks?
