Waiting idly for your friend or sitting pretty on your table, coffee table books represent a slice of who we are + what we love to look at. Their massive pages filled with design inspiration, quirky facts or beautiful images are equally important as their perfectly designed covers. I’ve rounded up my absolute favorite coffee table books — some of which are tying together my home decor as we speak, and others still on my wish list. Psst, this is also a great gift guide!
