What’s On Our Coffee Table

You’ll be hard pressed to find an interior designer or architect who doesn’t have a favorite book (or a whole bookshelf of favorites). They are the books we go to for inspiration, encouragement; to feel challenged and to find solace. They remind us that details matter, that creativity breeds creativity, that beauty is something worth talking about.

Below are a few favorite reads–the books you’ll find open on our coffee tables with dog-eared pages and fingerprints.

"The Perfectly Imperfect Home" - Deborah Needleman

"The Architecture of Happiness" - Alain de Botton

"An Eye for Design" - Allegra Hicks
