BFF to the Coffee Table

One can never have to many coffee table books. What’s not to love about them? They are great conversation starters, instant couch potato inspiration and all niches are covered.

Things I look for in the books:

  • Eye catching Cover
  • At least 12″ long
  • Variety of topics- Nature, Art, Fashion
  • Ode to your favorite city
