It’s monday. It’s freezing. I’ve spent most of the weekend in bed nursing a cold. Happy to report i’m back on form!
A few weeks ago, when there was a hint of spring in the air, I hopped over to what is ‘the prime resource for architectural antiques, salvage and curiosities’. LASSCO, a mansion nestled in midst the vauxhall roundabout crossing and once the home of a duke, is now a vast space where reclaimed furniture and vintage paraphernalia sit alongside and share the rooms with beautiful antiques. There’s also a patio garden and the wonderful brunswick house café. And to be clear, everything you see there is for sale (bar the staff)!
There’s too much to show you in one post so i decided to split them into two. Today is all about the outdoors. Come back on thursday for some real interiors gems.
Have a look at these garden ornaments. All i needed was a big van and lots and lots of money and i would have gladly bought them all:-)
Which one do you like? Oh, go on, pretend it’s spring, it’s hot and you have a garden or roof terrace and, an unlimited budget.
I love this period fern and blackberry pattern cast iron and wooded slated garden bench. It’s £3,500, but hey, we said we won’t worry about price!
These ornate railings are beautiful. I particularly like the first one with the repeating birds and scroll design.
This planter, here below, had an incredible patina and thankfully was already sold!
Who doesn’t love an old street sign?
And now here are two heart breakers. Aren’t their expressions just wonderful? I was standing there imagining what names i would choose….
On the theme of ornaments, i thought i would include two further pictures of what you can expect to find inside LASSCO.
These last two were just a teaser. Hopefully they’ll get you excited for thursday’s post. Part 2 will show you what i found inside LASSCO and the brunswick house café. Hope to see you then:-)
