So you've gotten rid of the stack of old magazines you'll never get around to reading, and winnowed your subscription list down to a reasonable number. And now you're looking for a nice magazine rack to keep your latest editions.
Fortunately, there's a huge range of interesting choices. Let's start with the To You To Me storage unit from The Life Aesthetic. Update on Nov. 22, 2010: You can also see this product on the new website of the designer/maker, Gary Moore.
Zack makes this stainless steel magazine rack; there are a number of on-line vendors.
And here's an eye-catching leather magazine rack from Hagform, in Sweden. It comes in a number of colors: green, orange, red, black, etc. Update on June 2, 2012: This magazine rack is actually made by Midipy, a French company; Hagform is the French distributor.
Here's another product from Sweden: The Stackmag, from Paug - available from Scand. Design Online in black, orange, purple, white and green. Update on March 5, 2011: Here's another place to buy it.
And yet another Swedish magazine rack is this one designed by Anne Krook, from Krookodil. Again, you can buy it at Scand. Design Online. [via Ohdeedoh] Update on March 5, 2011: I'm no longer finding this one available for online sales.
This over-the-door reading rack from Jokari isn't as attractive as some - but it might fit your space perfectly.
Returning to the more fanciful designs, this is just one of the magazine racks from Paolo Design. Since these are made in France, it's no surprise that there's also a design featuring a dog.
As Retro to Go notes, this magazine rack by Fornasetti "may not leave you with much money for magazines to put in it." But if you're interested, you can find it at Unica Home.
Another option is a magazine basket. Update on March 5, 2011: The site that had sold this basket no longer carries it.
And then there are the canvas magazine baskets sold by KC Hawaii. This 3-level version comes in your choice of four colors; there's also a single-basket version with different designs.
And finally, MD. Iron Designs has a magazine rack designed specifically for the bathroom.
