Inviting Books

Set out a collection of books you've been meaning to read or coffee table books that fit the theme of your room or your general interests. They're an invitation for you and your guests to sit and read and they can also get a sense of your personal style and passions. Whether it's a childhood favorite or the current best seller, books are sure to make you feel at home or start an interesting conversation.
