The Ultimate Interior Design Book Wishlist

As you’ve probably already learned, coffee table books are one of my latest obsessions. They’re sturdy, hardbound blogs of your favorite images from your favorite designers. And the best part? They make great decor! As the name suggests, you can stack them on your coffee tables, side tables, and bookshelves. This selection is not authoritative, but I offer it as a diverse and encompassing collection of both traditional and contemporary Western interior design books.
