Oftentimes when I post vignettes around my home I get DMs asking for details around the coffee table books in my apartment so today I am sharing the collection I have amassed. Plus – read on for the books I’m planning to pick up next!
My Coffee Table Book Collection
I think coffee table books are such a fun way to show off your personality and your personal interests and they are a great way to add visual layers and fill space. Over the years I have collected a variety related to fashion, Paris and interiors and I love perusing them but also using them for decorative purposes.
Vogue and The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute: Parties, Exhibitions, People
In Vogue: An Illustrated History of the World’s Most Famous Fashion Magazine
Chanel: Collections and Creations

Do you have a favorite coffee table book or one that you would recommend?
I also just bought this Architectural Digest at 100 book and next on my list is the Dior: The Collections book and this darling set of mini fashion books.
I love coffee table books! The ones on my coffee table currently are:
1. “View from My Window” – this is a collection of photographs posted in the “View from my window” facebook group during the pandemic lockdown. They collated some of the best and published a book – it’s a lovely reminder to me of how we stayed connected when the world stopped.
2. “Epic Bike Rides of the World” – two girlfriends and I have done bike trips through Europe together, and one of them gave me this book as a birthday gift.
3. “Hold: A portrait of our nation in 2020”, which was a UK photo project spearheaded by Duchess Kate during the pandemic.
4. My son’s Astrophysics PhD dissertation, entitled “The Photoevaporation of Hot Jupiters and its Observational Consequences”
LOVE hearing what you have – thank you so much for sharing!
