Coffee table books can show you read and care about whatever the book’s topic, offering visitors a glimpse into your passions and interests. And with their prime positioning usually next to a lounge, they also make for an easy expanding of the mind, covering niche topics in-depth, with plenty of glossy, expertly-captured photos.

But, while coffee table books do serve a purpose as books, with their well-designed covers and high-quality makings, they’re also great as home décor. They can either work with the rest of the interior design in a room, blending in seamlessly, or be eye-catching pieces that stand out and add flair.
