HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Oct. 11, 2022 (Newswire.com) –
French interior designer Samia Verbist, founder of Samia Verbist Interior Design in Orange County, recently explained the value of a well-placed book display on a coffee table.
This article is the latest in a long line of topics near and dear to Verbist’s heart. From powder room ideas that set rooms apart to designing an outdoor space using interior design techniques, Verbist stands apart from its contemporaries.
In the article presented on his blog, titled Design a Coffee Table Book Display, the Huntington Beach interior designer explains how versatile coffee table book displays are.
And while people think coffee table books belong strictly on coffee tables in living rooms, Verbist is quickly dissolving that long-held notion. After all, mixing and matching and subverting expectations is what she does best.
“Although we have taken to calling them coffee table books, they are not limited to the coffee table. In fact, I like to place them in many places in the living space, such as the bedroom or the home office,” says Verbist.
Choose the right topics
A good book display on a coffee table is much more than a nice table with random books. Choosing the right coffee table books for a display, says Verbist, is key to a complete and detailed decor.
“Think art, fashion, architecture, design, landscaping, gardens, or travel,” Verbist says of choosing different subjects. “For beautiful fashion books, global reviews like a book on the history of fashion is good. But you can also look for more specific publications, like a book dedicated to Chanel or Dior.”
Verbist points out that keeping coffee table books strictly on coffee tables limits your design abilities. “Although we call these coffee table books, they work just as well on other surfaces,” she says. “You can place them on console tables or hall tables for big impact. Or create a display on the shelf, and I don’t mean stand them upright with the spine.”
These tips are a fabulous introduction to the rest of Verbist’s stunning work.
