Is your coffee table looking a little uninspiring?  A stack of beautiful interior design books, topped with a crystal geode, a strand of beads, or a small box or bowl, is the perfect way to finish off a coffee table, or any space that needs “a little something.”  Not only do coffee table books (literally) elevate your decor, they can be a treasure-trove of design inspiration!

By the way, coffee table books make the best gifts!  I’ve gifted several of the ones shown here to friends and family, and I always keep one or two on hand to use as last-minute hostess or birthday gifts. 

Or, if you’re an Amazon Prime junkie, like me, you can send a book directly to the giftee and they’ll have it in just a day or two.  So easy! 

Best of all, the recipient doesn’t necessarily have to be interested in interior design to love receiving one of these beautiful books, because almost everyone’s coffee table could use a few new books to zhush it up. (Including mine!)  Here are a handful of my favorites:
