This article will date me, I’m afraid. I like good old fashioned magazines. I like to rip out articles, turn real pages, and look at everything. I also need the actual magazine lying around to remind me that I want to read it. A couple of years ago, The Husband, in an effort to stop me from bringing 20 pounds of unread magazines on every trip we took, downloaded many of my magazines onto my iPad. There they sit. Unread. I forget they are there. I don’t know how to save everything I want to clip. I quickly reverted to the tried and true hard copy.
This is a long way of saying that I’m very fond of magazine racks. They come in all shapes and sizes. They can be unobtrusive or they can make a statement. They’re fun and useful. Here are some good ones.
One fun idea is to use great looking storage containers that are not necessarily designated for magazines. This is a checkered woven sea grass basket that is the perfect size for magazines and would fit snuggly right next to your favorite reading chair. It is 11.75”H x 19.5”W x 14.5”D and $98.00.
This is a hammered metal magazine holder that can be multi-use. It is made of brass with a silver finish. I love the look of modern shine with old-fashioned bucket shape. It is 17 ¼”w x 8”d x 15 ¼”h and $99.00.
For a different look, this rattan magazine holder is great. It will blend with all colors in a room and work with traditional or modern decorating. The rattan is hand woven and very durable. It is 21.25”w x 15”d x 18”h and $79.00.
If you don’t have too many magazines to store, this folding magazine rack is great. It has a contemporary look with a V shape. It can be folded inward and stored when not needed. It is 14”h x 15.25”w x 9.25”d and $21.00.
This gorgeous calf leather magazine holder is handmade in the French Pyrenees. It has an inner felt lining and white stitching. It comes in five colors – black, chocolate, red, orange and camel. It measures 11 ¾” x 9 ½” x 7 ¾” and is $313.00.
This square magazine holder is handcrafted from synthetic leather in Italy. It is great looking and practical. The handles make it easy to move from one location to another. It is 8 ¾” x 8 ¾” x 15 ¾” and also comes in white or black. It is $380.69. There is also a rectangular magazine holder that is 13 ¾” x 7 ¾” x 18 ¾” in the same three colors. It is $380.69.
This is a natural banana leaf side by side magazine rack with an inside divider and a build-in handle. It is very sturdy and will work in any room of the house, even the bathroom. It is 13”h x 17”w x 9.5” d. $52.99.
I like this Buckle Magazine Caddy in brass. The strap looks like a belt buckle which adds some whimsy and allows the caddy to be transported. It is 18 ¼”h x 14”w x 4 ¼”d and $225.00.
This is a great looking magazine holder. It is all leather in a contemporary shape. It comes in espresso and tan and is 16”h x 7”d x 14”w. It is $106.49.
