Aujourd’hui, nous avons eu une réunion à la Maison Assouline …
I’ve met Prosper before but not Martine. So today, Mummy introduced George and I to Martine.And we also introduced George to Prosper. Well, sort of.May’s comment: Along Piccadilly in a beautifully restored 1922 building by Sir Edward Lutyens is Maison Assouline – an oasis in the heart of busy Piccadilly.
You walk into a lofty ceilinged, wood-panelled room and you see the Mondrian wall of books. It is a room full of curiosities. There are tables and chairs scattered for a small cafe where you can enjoy a drink, lunch or light dinner.
The Assoulines have been friends since we worked on a project together in New York though our friendship began in a hilarious and ridiculous way – that it pained us to talk about and yet laugh at its incredulity. Sometimes strange things bring people together. This time it wasn’t because of the dogs, or is it?
