Established in France (1994) by Prosper and Martine Assouline, Assouline published their first illustrated book about the famed La Colombe D’or hotel in Provence. The captivating images and layout of the hotel’s grounds, notable guests, and private art collection made the book a success. Assouline went on to expand its imprint into art, fashion, and design. Featured in French Vogue (1996) Assouline evolved to become an iconic publisher and lifestyle brand with its imprint as the foundation of the business.
Assouline themes also include architecture, food & drink, jewelry, hospitality, photography, and travel. Their goal was to be a luxury cultural brand for the contemporary and sophisticated library. Assouline also makes fine scented candles, stationary, and travel book clutches made in collaboration with French art house Olymipa Le-Tan. Designer’s Mark offers the complete line of Assouline; a celebration of la belle vie.
Established in 2009 by Karen Gilbert and Paul Pavlak, SkLO are makers of exquisite hand blown Czech glass objects, lighting, and home accessories. SkLO designs are primarily based on organic shapes and forms found in nature. For Spring 2020, SkLO introduced the Once Light, a single sphereof hand-blown glass atop a brass metal base. Once Light can be arranged as a single, duo, or trio in each size. It is both a work of art and beautiful accent lighting.
The Dew Sconce is the newest companion to the best-selling Dew Pendant. Each glass diffuser is mounted to a brass base fixture. No two Dew Sconce are alike as each drip of glass is applied individually; the result of the variable, unpredictable nature of liquid glass on the blower’s wand. These two elements are the basis of the SkLO glassblowing process. For the 2020 Object Collection SkLO released the double-sided Taper Vessel composed of tapered, conical shapes.
You can learn more about SkLO in our Designer’s Spotlight feature in April 2020.
Known for their wide selection of modern eclectic home accessories, Global Views has accent and decor pieces that suit both rustic and luxe contemporary tastes.

The 1960s mod Mack Etagere is a multi-shelf unit of antique brass steel frame with lower drawers covered in eucalyptus veneer. The Mack Etagere is an excellent piece for storage and art object display. The overall dimensions are 60″w x 84″h x 21″d (308 lbs.).
From the 2020 lighting collection is the Convolution Chandelier. Intertwined fluid brass ribbons are illuminated by ambient LED light. Its sculptural shape makes an artistic statement and focal point for an entryway or dining room. The Abstract Block Floating Shelf (Brass) is a wall-mounted set covered in a geometric relief pattern of sheet metal with protective coating. The Abstract Block Floating Shelf is a perfect addition to a study or foyer.
