A room without books is like a body without a soul. – Marcus Tullius CiceroI
I always loved collecting and reading books. I find them an infinite source of inspiration and wonder. Funnily enough my husband is just the same and together we have quite a library. But my books don’t limit themselves to live on the shelf. Oh no! That would be a shame.
Coffee table books are perfect to showcase your interests and are a stylish addition to any home. Most of mine are about art, photography and fashion (because that’s what I’m most interested in) and I like to display them proudly around my house as if they are works of art (indeed some of them are so beautiful they may as well be).
You might place a few books on your coffee table with a vase of flowers next to it, or put a few on your dresser and place a candle on top. They even look good on bedside tables or simply piled up on the floor next to a lovely chair.
I have rounded up some of my favourite coffee table books below. Some of these I already own whilst others are currently part of my wish list.
