Best Coffee Table Book Selection
Nothing makes us happier than flipping through books filled with sumptuous photography of gorgeous people and things we will never personally know. That is, until it makes us sad. And our favorite place to experience this joy and depression is Mecox. Coffee table books abound in practically every corner and range in topic from wine and women to fashion and architecture. No question, after perusing all those books, you might find yourself a little jealous, but you’ll for sure leave the store a lot smarter. mecoxgardens.com.
