Aesthetic Coffee Table Books - Creative Presentation

Aesthetic Coffee Table Books: The Art of Presenting Books 

Coffee Table Books are the aesthetes among books. Their large format and artistic design make them intellectual works of art. Perfect to exist in a living cosmos driven by aesthetics, right? 

We think so, too, and so here are a few tips and tricks on how to turn your picture book favourites into exhibits in your mindfully designed home to enrich the ambience of the rooms.

Art for the eye 

The most outstanding feature of an aesthetic coffee table book is by far its appearance. High-definity photo printing on expensive glossy paper framed by artfully designed covers. Such a coffee table book is a beauty and should be displayed with pleasure.  

The classic presentation of the aesthetic coffee table books is on the coffee table. Whether in stacks or open is up to your preference as a decorator. 

It becomes more unusual if you afford a book shelf. Here you can present the coffee table book as if in a gallery, making it a real exhibit in your home. 

Whether you choose a coffee-table book that shows the wonders of our earth, such as "Chasing Light" by Stefan Forster or "This must be Paradise" by Reto Guntli and Agi Simoes, or prefer to dive into the world of fashion, for example with „Mode-Déjà-vu" by Agata Toromanoff und Pierre Toromanoff, is up to you. And you're sure to find an aesthetic coffee table book that deals thematically with your style of furnishing. What a perfect complement!

Aesthetic coffee table books as conversation starters 

A beautifully designed flat wants to be visited. Coffee-table books are a welcome starter for lively conversations.  

Place a luxurious coffee-table book in a stylish and effective way in the view of your guests and just wait and see what happens. In most cases, this composition works all by itself and the ice is broken. You decide in advance what the conversation will be about by choosing the aesthetic coffee table book. Fashion, architecture, travel or the world of sport: there is a suitable coffee table book for everything, with which you can out yourself as cosmopolitan, educated and stylish.
