Fashion lovers know that true personal style extends beyond your closet. It's about the way you carry yourself, your unique personality, the genuine people with which you surround yourself -- and even your actually surroundings. So when it comes to home decor, creating a space that speaks to your particular je ne sais quoi is important.
One of the simplest ways to inject some of that sartorial splendor into your home is with an eye-catching coffee table book. Basically we like to think of these big, beautiful books as the new centerpiece or vase of flowers -- because who seriously has the time or money for fresh flowers every few days?
