Table Toppers

I love to collect coffee table books that I can flip through time and time again & experience total sensory overload. With anything from fashion to photography these books are perfect room accents. Like all collectables, it’s always fun to gift others with one of your favorites. For your bestie’s next birthday, house warming party or even a thoughtful token of appreciation–choose a creative hardcover. These are some of my favorites along with newcomers that I can’t wait to get my claws on. I hope you find the perfect one for you!

For the Collector:
Andy Warhol Prints: A Catalogue Raisonne 1963-1987—with 384 pages and 1,700 reproductions from the man who IS pop art, this is the perfect colorful addition to any bookshelf.

Louis Vuitton: Art, Fashion and Architecture—a lavish montage of Vuitton’s collaborations with world renowned artists (trunks and bags aside).

For the Fashion Maven:
Who What Wear: Celebrity and Runway Style for Real Life—we were already addicted to the site, so the book is a given for any seasoned stylista.
The Teen Vogue Handbook—the go-to reference for all that is fashion, even beyond your teen years.

For the Visionary:
Hue by Kelly Wearstler—with projects arranged by color, Wearstler’s design inspiration proves much deeper than the walls she decorates.
Marchesa Casati: Portraits of a muse—the complete portrait of an everlasting style icon, including insightful contributions from the likes of DVF and Karl Lagerfeld.

Influence

A recent addition to my collection of coffee table books is Influence, the new compilation of interviews from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. These twins seem to have had business savvy characteristics in their blood since birth and this next accomplishment they can add to that lengthy tally. This near 300 page book features 20 interviews (some together, some separate) with an array of influential icons, some of which they have known for years and others they were meeting for the first time. I loved their choice of individuals and thought it was a great representation of art, fashion and lifestyle. My personal favorite was Diane Von Furstenberg a woman I myself admire. Another great caption was with writer Bob Colacello, where MK couldn’t get enough about the days of partying in the factory with Andy Warhol (possibly why she is always spotted at swanky joints such as the Beatrice Inn.) All-in-all bravo to the Olsen’s! What a fabulous glimpse into some of the most creative and influential minds!
