Whether you miss the feel of a magazine in your hand or just enjoy going back and poring over pages of beautiful interiors, there are several new design books that you may want to add to your coffee table this fall. These books can be a bit of an investment so I specifically look for those that are by designers whose work I already know and love or for those books that are full of great photos I know I’ll want to study over time. And, a pretty cover is always a plus.
