Coffee table favourites
Bibliophiles, art and design lovers and musicians will go gaga for Taschen Books, a hardback haven of high fashion photography, life works and limited edition prints. Our top picks: Naomi Campbell’s The Art of Beauty (HOT), David Bailey in sexy black ‘n white and archi-preneur Zaha Hadid’s Complete Works.
Fine art at home
Mandy Moore swears by Samsung’s The Frame—the collectors’ go-to for big, buzzy names and fine art streamed straight to your TV (when you’re not busy watching shows, that is). Get a glimpse of global art heavyweights that won’t burst the bank from the likes of V&A Art and Saatchi Art. Pwoah!
