In 1994, Prosper and Martine Assouline founded a publishing house and luxury brand for culture in Paris. In doing so, they gave in to their desire to create a new, contemporary style of books. The result is magnificent coffee table books, bursting with beautiful images and exciting stories. The books capture the pulse of the times. They are aimed at people who like to have a beautiful home, but are also interested in culture, fashion and travel.
For Assouline, her beautifully illustrated coffee table books are luxury objects that are as valuable as the coffee tables they sit on. We think so too, and give the books a special place among our home accessories and furniture.
