I have a weird addiction to coffee table books. I could sit and flip through their glossy image centric pages for hours. Actually, I have done that (the addiction is very real), and do you know what I’ve discovered? Almost every person I know has the exact same rotation of coffee table books. Rachel Zoe’s A to Zoe? Everywhere. Harpers Bazaar Greatest Hits? Omnipresent. That Chanel hardcover book was real original once, maybe, but that time has certainly gone (if it ever had come).
Guys, for the love of all that is hard back, it’s time to step up our coffee table book game. We’ve all already read your Cupcakes and Cashmere coffee table book. We loved it! I mean, the girl can decorate, but I want to feel inspiiiiired. I want to delve into the literature on your coffee table with enthusiasm; blissfully unaware of what may lay ahead when I open to that first page.
