INTERMIX Edit: Stylish Coffee Table Books

We like to treat our coffee table books like we do our accessories: they're a reflection of our tastes and interests, and can really set the tone for your space. Here are eight that keep popping up in our own homes.

Women In Clothes by Heidi Julavits, Leanne Shapton, and Sheila Heti
"I love a book you can open at any page and find something inspiring, like Molly Ringwald interviewing Cindy Sherman on her costume inspiration or a color analysis by Tavi Gevinson or Zosia Mamet mimicking poses from fashion magazines. "
– Allison Kramer, Associate Art Director


Humans of New York by Brandon Stanton
"The touching stories feel like a snapshot of New York. I also have a sentimental attachment to it: My dad bought it for me as a gift when I first moved to the city."
– Meredith Meyer, Associate Manager of Public Relations


It by Alexa Chung
"This is It–girl inspiration at its best. It's the perfect book to flip through for all things Alexa Chung, including bits of her writing, drawings and photographs."
– Safaa Dam, E–Commerce Merchandise Assistant


Kate Moss Style by Angela Buttolph
"I've always looked up to Kate Moss' effortless style and how she manages to look so cool. She's only a few inches taller than me! Her approach to style has taught me that the most important thing is to dress for your body."
– Kristen Lam, Social Media Coordinator


Peru: The Cookbook by Gastón Acurio
"The only thing I like more than making food or eating food is reading about it. Chef Gastón Acurio's recipes transport me back to a magical week I spent in Peru falling in love with its cuisine. One chapter is devoted to ceviche! Plus, the photography inside is just as beautiful as the cover."
– Erica Chen, E–mail Marketing Associate


Harper's Bazaar's Greatest Hits by Glenda Bailey
"To me, a coffee–table book is one that can be opened to any page and its contents will inspire conversation. This is exactly that kind of book. The photography is captivating and the fashion is nothing short of incredible."
– Paige Zanelli, Social Media Specialist


American Beauty by Claiborne Swanson Frank
"I'd be surprised not to find this book in any fashion lover's collection. The images are inspiring and I love how the photographer has packaged everything together with quotes from all her subjects."
– Monica Freeman, Associate Editorial Director


The Lights of London by Jean–Michel Berts
"I wanted to do something different and memorable for those who traveled to London for my wedding, so I gave them all this book. I personalized each one with a message inside the cover."
– Amanda Rosenberg, Head of Public Relations
