I am looking for a colorful magazine rack. I looked through the blog articles but most of the ones that I see and like, the web pages don't exist anymore. Do you know of other sites I might look at? -- Tommy, commenting on my magazine rack post from June 2010
Sure! Things keep changing - products get discontinued and new ones are offered. (And sometimes old products are still around, but are carried by different websites and stores than in the past.) So besides updating the links on all my old magazine rack posts, I've found some new ones - including some that are definitely colorful!
Let's start out with the Front Page Magazine Rack by Kartell. It's available in red and yellow as well as the more demure black, smoke, etc. In the U.S., one place to buy it is Hive.
Casamania has a magazine rack available in red and orange (as well as black and other neutral colors).
Michael Sodeau designed the Sprung Magazine Rack. I'm not seeing this on the manufacturer's web site, though - and there are very few online purchase options. (Here's one.) So act soon if you want this one.
And here's the Buuk magazine rack, designed by Lorbus for Sintesi. The photo comes from Bauhaus 2 Your House - which unfortunately is not selling this orange version right now. Other places selling this magazine rack - places which do have colorful versions - include Designyu in Germany, postmoderndesigns.co.uk, and Aria in Hong Kong. Update on Nov. 30, 2012: Designyu is no longer carrying this product.
If you want a more classic look, there's this red leather magazine rack from Global Views.
Finally, here's the Lipsi lacquered magazine rack from Busso - which has an online shop for the U.S.
