I have amassed quite a collection of coffee table books over the years (mostly focused on interiors) and it’s one of my favorite gifts to give. Not only do these hardcover books look beautiful on the shelf or on a coffee or console table, I find endless inspiration in them for our own home. Below is a list of a few of my favorite coffee table books. You can click on each individual image for the product information and link. If you don’t see the widget, try refreshing the page!
