We’ve all had those days when we wake up, look around our home and lament the fact that the sofa isn’t unique enough, that there is a notable absence of antlered dead animals above the fireplace, and our rug saw better days when it moonlighted as the dog’s bed. If you’re feeling blue about how Swedish your homeware is becoming, head on down to the Curiosities and Architectural Salvage Auction at Brunswick House on June 15 from 10am where you could end up taking home a table lamp made out of a stuffed alligator, or even a pair of life-size polychrome Beefeaters estimated to sell between £300-£500.

If your home lighting is more ‘Husvik’ that Heals, why not invest in some stand out 1970’s traffic lights to mount on your wall? The catalogue alone is worth a peruse, and if you have the energy and enthusiasm to compete against other bidders for real one-off items, then this event is unmissable.

Over 1000 items placed in 480 lots will be available for bidding on and most of those will primarily be of London origin. For bidding and more information please contact fineart@dnfa.com. Viewing starts on Thursday June 6 and the auction will be held on Saturday June 15 at Brunswick House in Vauxhall. Ellie Ross
