10 Coffee Table Books You Can't Live Without

Set your books free and allow them to become just as much of a staple piece as the coffee table they sit on.

If you want to rejuvenate your book-scape in time for spring and discover some fresh inspiration then look no further. Never mind curating your bookshelf, how about curating your coffee table? Here at Utility we stock a wide range of coffee table books perfect for browsing through, or impressing your guests with your worldly knowledge. You may want to dip your toe into the pool of architecture, or maybe learn about the fashion icons that changed the world, whatever you fancy our large glossy books are wonderful gifts to make the home even more beautiful and to give that personal touch.

Coffee table books become as solid as the furniture they sit on, they assist in a great photo composition for instagram, but they also speak volumes about their owners. Whether you are a fashionista, an architect or you happen to appreciate modern art, your choice should compliment, you!

Not much can beat unwinding after a long day and flicking through beautiful spreads and images, offering useful insights and unique tips.
Have a look at our wish list, showcasing the best coffee table books and see what suits your aesthetic. Our genres cover reading art for art lovers, to how to live the Scandinavian lifestyle, whether you want to build your own museum of books or just want that one off piece, the world is your library!

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
