THE COFFEE TABLE BOOK GUIDE

Coffee table books are some of the most versatile design pieces. Either stacked neatly or strewn chicly (the only way to strew), beautiful cover art and eye-catching fonts can quickly and easily bring a room to life. Bonus - you can read them too! Aesthetics and information, two of our favorite things.  

While this list is far from definitive, below are some of our all-time favorite tomes. Keep your eyes open - we will be updating this list periodically with new releases and more classic favorites. Let us know if we're missing any!
