In kondo, I have these two massive marble cocktail tables pushed together, and they cohabitate nicely with tigre sofa. Since the sofa is over 12' long, the table needed to be huge to not look like a postage stamp. I was working with Sonder Living on the main room, and their black marble table was super chic, but I knew it would take a pair to hang w/ tigre. I started with them about two feet apart, but recently I pushed them together to make one massive island. The population of said island is about 12 coffee table books, 8 bowls, 5 glass hurricanes, 3 ash trays, 7 regular trays and an empty plate from dinner last night. Clearly what stands out to me: not enough books. I shelved so many of my big ones in the towering bookcase I had made, so I'm on the hunt for a couple of showstoppers to join the isle-of-stuff-in-piles. I love the whole travel series by Assouline; obviously, Aspen is a fave -- but I'm looking for some new-to-me inspo, so I've found up 6 coffee table books that I certainly wouldn't kick off the island.
