There are coffee table books dedicated to curating your perfect coffee table.
The stuff on your coffee table says a lot about you and your coffee table books are a huge part of that. I see them more as decorative pieces that lets guests to your home learn about what kind of person you are with a quick glance at the titles.
Coffee table books are as decorative as they are practical and make great gifts. Ideally, coffee table books should be hardback, with large titles, great photography and be stacked from big to small and piled 3 – 5 books high.
Rules for curating the best coffee table books, guys:
- make sure they contain topics that you are actually interested in
- the titles should complement your decor, books in dark colours: think books about time pieces, Tom Ford, and books about coffee art are good choices, whereas colourful covers are usually about art, comics and travel
- do read them! It’s like your guests will ask you about them and will leaf through themselves, so it would be good to show them section or images you actually like!
- Keep them clean, they can get dusty if they’re not touched/read often, so wipe them down with a damp cloth every few days.
