Tube inspired fabric

Post by michael_churchill » 06 Dec 2017, 15:51

I'm a programmer at a company that writes software for Herman Miller, a big office furniture company, and I've just come across a fabric that is an upholstery option for some of their sofas, in which the colour names appear to be inspired by the name of tube stations.

It appears that Camira are also the people who make the upholstery for the trains (moquette?, never sure how to spell that word).

"Inspired by" is a bit of a stretch. Someone somewhere decided to use tube station names even though there is no connection whatsoever to the fabric colours.
