Our very own coffee table has been photographed for the site, featuring The History of Art by H.W. Janson - a classic survey of Western art and an indispensable scholarly reference. It got us thinking about how the items in our home reflect and fuel, our passions - even the most simple of them. If we were to makeover our coffee table we would certainly keep The History of Art - but add (at least) one of the following, too.
1. Bringing Nature Home, $45
A practical guide to flower arrangements.
2. The Selby is Your Place, $35
A collection of portraits with profiles of dynamic and creative people in their private spaces.
An organized guide to the complete plant kingdom.
4. A Living Space, $49.95
The tips and tricks of noted author and designer Kit Kemp.
