I have always had a love for coffee table books. I love to use them to style interiors with and lately I have picked up a couple new ones which remind how happy they make me!
Over the years, my tastes have changed so my collection of coffee table books ranges from–Sex and the City/Kardashians, Lauren Conrad/Victoria Beckham to Princess Diana/Gucci/Lady Gaga/Photography/rosé. && I have to say, I still love them all. They are something fun to flip through from time to time. Particularly, I love books that are photo heavy and date themselves. That’s why my favorite way to to buy coffee table books is from used websites. Lately, I have been finding gems from sellers who list their books through Barnes and Noble. The last two I got were even under $2.00! (Now, I do usually still have to pay around $7 for s&h–but still! What a steal, right?) I like to use mine as layering pieces.. under a tray and candle on the entry way table, as a flat surface to rest my designer handbags on, atop a marble tray our bar cart, etc etc. They can help frame out a space. AND it certainly doesn’t hurt if the color scheme of the cover and spine matches my vibe. I mean who are we kidding, it’s pretty much a necessity! I am still convinced that the infamous Tom Ford book will be mine.. someday!
ps, pages from a coffee table book can also make great wall art. Just use an X-Acto knife to cut them out of the book and frame in a simplistic frame. It’s so inexpensive and really custom to your house and taste. We chose pages from the Gucci holiday book they sent us to great a gallery wall!
