Latest Lust: Stylish Coffee Table Books

With less than a month to go before my big move, I've been trying to track down all the finishing decor touches to make my place cozy and stylish! My dream is to have a bookcase and coffee table filled with fashion, design, art, and travel books. Here's a look at some I'd love to add to my collection:

101 Things I Learned in Fashion School

I know books have gone to the way of the ipad & Kindle, but there is just something wonderful about the tangiblity of an old school coffee table book. The rich glossy pictures & text are almost like a testament to everything that you find fascinating!

Do you own any coffee table books/have suggestions?

I love fashion books! They look so cool on coffee tables. Definitely get some Nina Garcia books. They'd be perfect.

I also have a book of Tim Walker's photography - SO gorgeous and definitely worth the display!

I don't think the Kindle will ever, ever replace a book. There is just something about books that have all this history and substance... :) I love your choices though! I have a very nice Coco Chanel one that sits prettily in my room!

It's true, books seem to be a dying breed. I'd like to think though that books will be like wine, and people will have them as collector items. The Selby book is gorgeous! I own it and it's such a great inspiration. I'd also love to get the Olsen twin book, Influence I think it's called?

I love coffee table books, especially amusing strange ones. But for just photography sake, I like the one from the Gossip Girl fashion designer "You know You Want It". Not a ton of information but really well done photo shoots.
