24. Coffee Table Books Are Beautiful Decor, and Give Your Guests Something to Read : $27.99

Who doesn’t love a good coffee table book? Having stacks of large hardcover books around your living room looks stylish, and it gives levels of dimension and depth. In the photo above, we can see that Jessica has a huge collection along her wooden table. And in the Architectural Digest video tour, we see that a lot of her books are also scattered throughout the room with candles and cement bowls sitting on top. Choosing a coffee table book is a very personal process. Most people choose books on topics they enjoy, or the color scheme of the room. We chose a book called Down to Earth: Laid-Back Interiors For Modern Living by Lauren Liess in honor of Jessica Alba’s earth toned living room.
