There are plenty of small changes you can make to your living spaces that would surely turn heads—these include adding those finishing touches like sculptures, antique rugs, and ornate pictures frames. But a very important piece of decoration that tends to catch most peoples’ eyes is the books you place on your coffee table.
Books for coffee tables are typically known to be slightly larger than novels. They are an excellent source of self-expression, as they could reveal topics of your interest. Kind of like a get-to-know-me through books. You could even place encyclopedias about all the different kinds of wine in the world or even dinosaurs.
Here are some books that we think would look great on your coffee table.
1. Hand Dryers
This book is proof that in the right hands, even the most random of things can be turned into art. “Hand Dryers” is a photographic collection of - you guessed it - hand dryers.

It features beautiful photographs of bathroom hand dryers all over the world, setting forth their unique handy designs and their capability to amplify the surroundings.
