Chic Reads: Assouline at The Plaza

If there is one publisher that epitomizes chicness, it's Assouline.   I had the privilege of attending their fall preview yesterday and I warn you again, make room on your bookshelves!  I was able to take a look at American Fashion Designers at Home and it's even better than I anticipated.  Those of you who love Paris will also want to order Antiquaires: Flea Markets of Paris by Laurie Verchere with a foreword by 1stdibs founder Michael Bruno.  The Assouline shop in the Plaza is also worth checking out since they often carry titles not available online and a vast collection of vintage books.  You can even pick up a Goyard trunk full of Assouline titles.  I told you they were chic!  Happy Reading!

Love their books and in-depth look at people and subjects that have greater appeal when I see their covers. And they make for the best coffee-table books out there. Adore their chest of books..........what a gift that would be.

I think I need an entire afternoon to just wander, look and dream there ... what a treat!

Sigh. I want all of those books. ALL OF THEM. I would just about sell my soul to have them. Even their gift-wrapping is gorgeous!! Maybe I'll get rid of my mattress and start sleeping on books. That's really the only space I have left in my house to stack more!

How fabulous! I hadn't heard about the Antiquares book yet - that will solve many of my gift giving issues! I will definitely be making a trip there soon!

I love their books and had the chance to visit their store in Paris, it was gorgeous I wanted to buy every book in the store! I managed to take lots of pictures but never really got around to posting about it.
