The architectural salvage shop, LASSCO, is like the home of the eccentric aunt you don’t have but wish you did. Located in an unlikely Vauxhall location, the Georgian mansion sticks two elegant fingers up at its bleak tower block backdrop. Once inside, you’ll be met with the scent of times gone by and a niggling sense that they were more fun. Mismatched multiples of artfully sourced items fill the space: the ceiling drips with exquisite chandeliers; walls heave heavy with works of art; taxidermy peacocks gaze rigidly at jars of curiosities. Add the Brunswick House Café to your restaurant wishlist too. And if you like the look of the table you eat at, buy it – cos quite literally everything at LASSCO is for sale (even the kitchen sink).
