Whenever a new season rolls in, I inevitably crave a refresh in my space. I clean and reorganize, rearrange my shelves, and usually end up adding a piece or two to breathe new life into my décor. A coffee table book is one of my go-to’s, for good reason. Coffee table books are an amazing (and relatively affordable) way to add an element of interest to your home, spark conversation, and act as a source of inspiration. That’s why I’ve rounded up some of the best coffee table books I could find.
Not only are they an easy way to elevate our space, but they also make an amazing gift! You can choose it based on a related interest or simply because it has a pretty cover and strikes your fancy.

When it comes to coffee table books, the aesthetic needs to be just as important as the contents of the book.
Scroll on for some of our favorite picks—from art to food to fashion, there’s a little something for everyone. (And it’s not too early to start shopping for holiday gifts!)
