In an  Entry:

An entry is where you want to wow your guests but at the same time to make them feel inviting and warm.  A stack of books have a magical power to ground any space. So  displaying beautifully covered large-format books together with stunning collectable decor objects and artwork in your entry often can help achieve this goal.  The key here is to choose large books with beautiful  cover design and colors that  nicely contrast or are  cohesive with the rest of the house.

On a Coffee Table

Together with fresh flowers and greenery, lovely candles, adorable cute objects and stylish trays, coffee-table books really play a key factor to add that final touch to make your home look super chic, glamorous, and sophisticated. Somehow, books on your coffee-table make the coffee-table vignette look very neat and organized rather than a lot of small objects cluttering around. Just as the books for entry, please, please display large-format books here with the most beautiful design to showcase your tastes.

Display on a Dining Table

We love to display all of our design magazines and books on our formal dining table.  The thing is that we only use our formal dining table on some occasions. So when we don’t use it , we can just double down it as a stylish reading table.
