The DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) or more precisely Rail Vehicle Accessibility Regulations (RVAR) requires "contrasting" colours, so I presume there is sufficient contrast between the light grey poles and the dark seats/floors/bases to be acceptable. ~~~~

Have they just replaced damaged or threadbare moquette?
Seems from the pics, there's is one example of a back replaced & not the seat and one of the seat replaced but not the back. Could also be, as rincew1nd has said, a trial of the two bits running separately to the full jig further away.
Have to be honest, it doesn't quite look right this way. A whole carriage in either new or old moquette would be acceptable, but anything else looks a bit charity-shop to me.

Replacement of worn moquette only. The 'faded' moquette is exactly that.
I agree with the sentiments that it should all be done, but I'm pleased that we haven't got a variant like that applied to the Bakerloo.
Personal taste, but I would have preferred a variant. I think the blue clashes terribly with the grey. Actually the Bakerloo version would have worked, as there's grey in that if my memory has it right.
I see there are warning signs for the door's teeth.
Presumably to discourage people from trying to get on once the doors are closing.
Yes the dragons teeth are to discourage people from trying to get on once the doors are closing. Also the removal of the outside door buttons are to discourage people to press them trying to get doors to reopen, and get too close to trains and getting injured by a train moving , this is an issue on stations without platform edge doors ( PED's ).
