Assouline is a book brand well known worldwide for bringing luxury to the publishing industry. In this category “Assouline of the week “ we will show you our choice of book or quote for that week and what inspires us to be always better in what we do.
Assouline is one of our biggest inspiration. The brand speaks of themes such as luxury, fashion, and design (areas that we know best). Assouline has actively contributed to this growth by creating the highest quality book-objects whose distinctive graphic identity and editorial savoir-faire have captured imaginations, addressing new themes in a contemporary manner.
The brand, with its style and vision, is a true pioneer and is an inspiration for us see such a good work. Beyond “beautiful books” Assouline is invested in the promotion of culture. It has created the “first brand of luxury culture” by opening boutiques where one can discover a world of good taste, excitement, and intellect, a place where “culture can be acquired” within a luxurious environment. One can purchase complete book collections as well as objects that belong in contemporary libraries such as perfumed candles and “cabinets of curiosities.”
So our choice for today is “The big book of Chic”, an inspiration book to anyone interested in spirited and eclectic design.
Written by an internationally acclaimed interior design sensation, Miles Redd is known for this quirky brand of cozy glamour. This richly illustrated volume features a diverse selection of his unique interiors, an inspiration to anyone interested in spirited, eclectic design. As the author says “This is a book about dreams coming true; the curiosities in the rooms I have decorated; and the people, artists, and places that have inspired me. When all is said and done and I am long forgotten, maybe someone will find this book in a dusty library-if such a thing still exists-and glimpse a bit of the pleasure my life has given me. I want them to have the sensation of dancing across an MGM soundstage, silhouetted in a klieg light, because that was my intention with this book, a very personal blend of work and fantasy.” -Miles Redd
