Since 2019, Assouline has partnered with the non-profit organization One Tree Planted in their joint mission to create a more sustainable world. Through this partnership, Assouline plants one tree for every book sold. Once these trees reach maturity, Assouline aims to create a sustainable cycle by sourcing paper from the trees it has planted.

Andrea Ferolla and Daria Reina are a couple in life and in creativity. They have been working as creative directors, designers, and communication consultants in the luxury industry for more than twenty years. He draws; she takes pictures. He’s an academic; she’s a cool hunter. He is Italian; she is Franco-Italian. Together, they conceive, design, and create objects. With the help of their invaluable team, they give life to projects and events to share and convey in every possible way their sense of art, beauty, and style.
Seven years ago, they created Chez Dédé, a brand of exclusive accessory, fashion, home decor, and jewelry collections that stand alongside small éditions de charme and collaborations with worldwide luxury brands. Italian craftsmanship, a selection of exquisite materials, and a well-balanced blend of sprezzatura and esprit de finesse are the brand’s distinctive trademarks. Daria and Andrea both personally curate the Chez Dédé Instagram profile, and just like this book, it is the expression of their compulsive love for an authentic Italian lifestyle—and the perfect way to discover their “Dedeist” vision.
A combination of light and life, past and present, art and design, sunshine and shadow, Italy is Italy. Everywhere else is everywhere else.

THE ART OF LUXURY BOOKMAKING
Since its beginnings in 1994, Assouline has been dedicated to creating books that are as informational as they are beautiful works of art. The respect for the product and the process of creation is evident in every facet – the traditional technique of hand-binding covers, the imagery that transports the reader to another place and time, the luxurious thickness of each page.
Coupling an effortless assembly with the ability to showcase every collection from Icons to Ultimates, the Assouline A Bookstand is as elegant as the titles it holds. Designed by Alex Assouline, the luxe stand, with an engraved Assouline A logo centered on both panels, comes in black, red, or clear acrylic.
