coffee table WORTHY

via domino

In so many living room decor photos, the coffee tables are covered in stacks and stacks of big, hardback books. Do you ever wonder which books are worth keeping out for guests to browse through, or which books are eye-pleasing enough to pass for coffee table art? Each person has their personal preference according to his or her interests. But, if you were wondering, here are 8 books that I think are coffee table worthy.

Row 1: 
Vintage Shoes : Shoes through the ages. Unique styles, and vintage styles that you'll want to run out to a vintage boutique to find. Fabulous.
Creature : Andrew Zuckerman places his stunning photographs of beautiful animals on silent white backgrounds. If you love animals, you will love this. 
The Oxford Project : The project of photographer Peter Feldstein. Intriguing now and then photographs and stories from the people of Oxford, Iowa.
Vogue Living: Houses, Gardens, People : Fashionistas share their homes and gardens. If you think their clothes are stylish, you need to see their homes.
Row 2: 
The Surfboard: Art, Style, Stoke : Hubby and I gave this to his surfer dad for Christmas. It's filled with gorgeous surfboards and information on the history of surfboards.
Ocean: The World's Last Wilderness Revealed : I saw this book in a bookstore with my hubby a few years ago and we stood flipping through it for quite a while. The photography is beautiful. It's been on my wishlist ever since. 
Domino: The Book of Decorating : You've heard the hype, and it's all true. Tons of domino inspiration in one book. 
Graffiti World: Street Art from Five Continents : Not just ugly scribbles tagged on a lamp post. This is graffiti art.

What's on your coffee table?

I did not know there was such a thing as a vintage shoe book. Guess what I'm getting next! We currently have 1000 movies to see before you die and usually a pottery barn magazine. We also have the Seinfield coffee table book, but that is not currently out.
