Maison Assouline launches impressive London flagship store
Yesterday Assouline Publishing launched its newest flagship store, Maison Assouline, amongst the busy and bustling streets of London's Picadilly
So much more than a bookshop, this is a full on literature experience. There is the 'Swan Bar', a specially appointed area that will serve foie gras throughout the day, as well as an area dedicated to 'At The Emperor's Table', a bible on the art of entertaining by Valentino Garavani.
This space of high culture has been designed to mark 20 years of impeccable publishing from the company, whose tagline is "the most sophisticated books in the world".
In addition to Garavani's expertise, you can also find services such as laptop personalisation (£160) or individual leather covers for your favourite book (from £550), as well as scented candles (£35), photo frames (£90), bookmarks (£16) and branded Assouline stationery.
