25 Beautiful coffee table books to inspire your home

Coffee table books are a statement.

Generally more expensive than any other book – they are part decorative, like an ornament on a shelf or canvas on a wall and part book – however they are not novels with plot twisting story lines, instead they give insight to those who own them.

These inspirational talking points give uninspired spaces a sense of style and purpose. While a bizarre concept to some a stack of books is a really simple way to add charm and aesthetic to a room.

Coffee table books are widely associated with the fashion industry, with topics ranging from runway collections to designers and the market is saturated with them – the entire industry is literally at your fingertips.

However there is an entire world out there, and these books allow you to explore a range of topics and experiences including, travelling, gardening, art, history, food – the list goes on.
