Are Coffee Table Books relevant in this Digital Age and Time?


No drawing room or office is really complete without a coffee-table book or two. Designed for a break, to get your mind off something, for light coffee conversations, or to exercise your mind, they are visual display of photography, architecture, art, decor, sculptures, brand stories - these typically oversize tomes are the perfect companion.

Whether you’re looking for an intriguing coffee-table book to entertain your guests or searching for inspiration for your next re-design, these art-filled offerings are sure to fit the bill—and look pretty on your table while doing so.

They are now treasure troves of inspiration, fantasy and flights of fancy - covering every subject from globetrotting explorer, to luxurious design interiors, celebrity style, contemporary art and achievements of business houses. These books are not meant to simply act as decorative props - the wide range of photographs juxtaposed with related text keeps a reader intrigued for hours on end, revisiting those pages time and time again.

A coffee table book aims to capture the story of an individual or an organisation in his or her own words. To leave a legacy, a chapter from your life that you are proud of, a story that needs to be told and retold. All this enhanced with a wide spread of photographs topped up with small amounts of text, meant for a quick and light read.
