We love decorating with items that you can use, but also make for great decor, and coffee table books fit the bill. We love coffee table books because they usually involve some pretty incredibly photography, fun facts, and provide for some interesting reading material. A coffee table book instantly transforms any surface, and adds a little extra chic to every corner of your home. Here are some of our favorite coffee table books for the decor enthusiasts out there!
