I like monochrome books, but I especially like them if contrasted with books which instead have punches of vibrant colors. Like the collection above. I would gladly place this collection of design books on a simple coffee table like this budget friendly one from Ikea.

It has become a habit to look into book covers every Sunday now. And I am really enjoying it! There are so many nice covers out there that gets me inspired to place on a nice coffee table like this one from Muuto.
Which book covers would you love to use for decoration?

Some graphic design books, the fancy Design Hotel Book and an architecture book would sit nicely on this designed coffee table from Muuto. All I can say is, weekend please come and where is my tea?

Take Tom Fords book cover and combine it with some covers with punches of colour. Stack them on the Tray table from Hay and you will get a cheerful assortment.

Never judge a book by its cover, the saying goes. I must confess, I do! A well designed book cover makes my heart skip a beat. Inspires me. Visually engages me. I am constantly looking for new coffee table books to put on display. But wait! What are nice covers without a matching table? I figured I could combine well-designed books with a coffee table and dream away of its setting. Here on the blog.
Lets start with the table. It is of white laminate with a plywood edge. Designed by Leif Joergensen for Hay. Shall we put the Building With Light book on it? The whitish filter, and shapes on the cover goes well with the form of the table. I am also imagining the binding of Nate Berkus book being there. To complement the plywood color I would probably opt for the Interior Design Materials and Specifications cover. Which by the way is a good read. Oh and then there is Paul Ott’s book; muted in colour!
I suppose that is it for now. Lets have some fun with Books On Coffee Tables next week. Let me know what suggestions for nice book covers you have.
