As all interiors aficionados know, a coffee table is never merely a coffee table. Yes, it can be used as a station for drinks, dinners and even the odd foot on particularly lazy days, but its most important role by far is that of flaunting our most fabulous books – which have been purchased for the sole purpose of their contribution to a good-looking ‘shelfie’.

A well-chosen selection of coffee table books can make us look particularly good too, subtly displaying our interests for all guests to see – so it’s only right that a fashion aficionado’s coffee table should be piled high with all the most stylish tomes out there.
