How do I Choose a Coffee Table Book?
When picking out coffee table books, as a general rule of thumb I usually look for ones that are at least 9-10″ minimum in length. This is necessary because it allows them to carry some weight while being large enough to put a decent-sized accessory on.
What Makes a Good Coffee Table Book?
First things first, coffee table books must have a stunning cover.
Be it minimal, colorful, chic, feminine, or vintage (whatever matches your home and personality more). Secondly, coffee table books are great storytellers. However, their way of telling a story is varied. Coffee table books are precise, crisp, and include narratives that are inspiring to the beholder.
What Should I Put On My Coffee Table?
Coffee tables aren’t meant exclusively for books, mind you. It is in fact a great opportunity to have a stunning centerpiece tastefully displayed inside your home.
