I started collecting pretty design coffee table books a few years ago, and I can’t seem to stop. I just love having books out on display on the coffee table or bookshelves, plus they give great height to any little decor vignette. Oh, and they’re fun to look through.
I love taking the covers off books like in the picture below. They always look a bit more expensive without the covers. I just stash them in a drawer so I can pop them back on if I’m traveling with any books so they stay protected. (I always bring books on airplanes.)

Of course I’ve been on the lookout for some design books for people on our Christmas shopping list, plus I put a few books on my wish list for this year.
If you’re in the market for pretty coffee table books for yourself or someone on your list, read on. (Ah, no pun intended.) I own some of these already, but I’m thinking it would be fun to own them all. 🙂
Some are more design focused, some tell the stories of the HGTV stars we all know and love, and some are a good mix of both. Just click any of the images below for more info.
There’s just something about curling up with a pretty book and a good cup of coffee.
What books are on your shopping and wish lists this year?
If you’re looking for ‘regular’ reading books, I keep an ongoing list of my favorite books here.
