The Assoulines We're Reading Now

Glossy photos, exclusive content and intelligent writing aren’t the only reasons we love these modern classics. There’s something intangible about an Assouline – people are drawn to them over and over again. Which is why we’ve done an edit of our current faves that we think will draw you in as well...

The perfect gift or personal indulgence, these tomes dial up style and keep any coffee table on trend. The CHANEL volume (our founder and CEO’s favourite) is actually three hardcover books – jewellery, fashion, fragrance – presented in a handsome slipcase.

Forget the chardonnay, these are the dreamiest hostess gifts. From family meals and inspired table settings to the logistics of party planning, these fab beauties have it all. We especially love the “No Excuses: Here Are 10 Reasons You Should Have A Party!” read in Be R Guest.

You’ve got your bucket list, now add these to your must-read list. Smart takes on travel amped up with photos that will have you reaching for your passport, these volumes delight and transfer global eye candy, like the Trevi Fountain, to your tabletop. We can’t stop poring over Aspen Style, Aerin Lauder’s inside take on these A-Lister slopes.

From Barbie’s iconic style to advice from some of the world’s most revolutionary women (hello Simone de Beauvoir!), these reads celebrate female power, passion and fearlessness. Know a new mom? Mother and Child, a visual feast of modern motherhood, makes a perfect gift.
