About Maison Assouline
In autumn 2014, as Assouline celebrated its 20-year anniversary, the luxury culture and lifestyle brand opened the doors to Maison Assouline, its first international flagship store, located at 196A Piccadilly in London.
The Maison is described as a three-floor temple to the act of reading - and collecting - by Robb Report (February 2015). Originally a banking hall designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1922, the Grade II-listed building was one of the most iconic locations in the capital and is now acting as an all-encompassing Assouline lifestyle hub.
