The holidays are here, so now’s a great time to catch up on a book or two during the time away from work. Up to you what that looks like exactly, but we’d recommend snapping up a coffee table book that’s both gorgeous and informative. Flip through it when you have a moment, then put it on display in your living room use as a conversation starter.
Interior design and architecture have long been cornerstones of the coffee table book genre, and many renowned firms have their own monographs dedicated to their work. It’s great interiors inspo for your own space, of course, and can also serve as a research material for who to commission for a big new build or reno. Naturally, they also make great gifts, so if you want to get a jump start on next year’s Christmas shopping, a coffee table book or two is a great place to start, particularly for the aesthete in your life. Here, a few of our favorites to consider.
