Your home is more than a living space; it's a representation of who you are. As a focal point of one of the more social rooms in any space — the living room — the coffee table provides an opportunity to curate how visitors might understand you. Yes, it’s a surface for remote controls and drinking vessels, but it can also accommodate larger objects, like books — specifically the coffee table book. Taschen sells some of the best coffee table books around, about preeminent artists, designers, historical figures and more. And right now, the brand's beautiful books are on sale for up to 75 percent off.
These publications are extensive and usually filled with as many pictures as words. Every subject is fair game too — the sneakerhead might display a tome on the history of sneakers, while a downtown-dwelling artist might put out an ode to Jean-Michel Basquiat. These two books and many more — like this tattoo book, the Nike x Virgil Abloh book, etc. — are currently featured in Taschen’s sale on display models. Discounts range from 25 to 75 percent off, and given that these big books can cost as much as $700, it’s a sale worth checking out and fast as it only runs through February 5.
