The Best Coffee Table Books For Any Well-Appointed Home
The best coffee table books are fascinating literary creations—part objet d’art, part photographic ode, part textual reflection—that give insight to the interests of the owners. Some people adorn their apartments with fashion chronologies, others choose artists’ anthologies, and some can’t stay away from pages upon pages of artfully arranged English gardens. While libraries and bookshelves are full of novels half-read or to-be-read-maybe-someday, these serve as personal statements.
There are a number of books that make perfect gifts for those looking to spruce up their space and pique their intellectual curiosity, especially as we all spend more time at home. Take the first published collection of Bill Cunningham’s street style photographs, or Taschen’s ode to Peter Beard and his work on the American and African continents.
If it’s pop culture you seek, look no further than My Name is Prince, a visual ode to the late, great singer’s career or Rihanna’s book with Phaidon. For home decor aficionados, there’s a whole book dedicated to wallpaper house de Gournay, and another all about well-appointed bedrooms.
Fashion design fanatics will go crazy for Lagerfeld: The Chanel Shows, or Ralph Lauren: In His Own Fashion, which looks back on the legacy of the iconic American designer.
