Want a colorful magazine rack? See yesterday's magazine rack post - or see the magazine rack pictured above, from Block Design - which I found after I published that post. "Block is all about Colour," the site says - and this magazine rack comes in five colors, only one of which is a neutral! You can also buy it from Bouf. Update on Nov. 30, 2012: I'm no longer finding this at Bouf, but I am finding it at Home Clever.
But what if you'd like something that isn't so colorful? The colorful magazine racks I've listed come in more neutral colors as well - but I've got lots of other nice suggestions, too. Let's start with the Wirehouse magazine rack, designed by Ramón Middelkoop and Chris Koen and distributed by Invotis Orange.
For a different kind of look, there's the Float magazine rack from J-Me, available in chrome or black, with a 12-magazine capacity. It's widely available on the internet.
Another rack that follow the same general principle - hanging the magazines over rods or slats - is the Invisible Magazine Rack from Crate & Barrel; it's "invisible" when it holds its maximum capacity of eight magazines. [via Apartment Therapy] Update on Nov. 30, 2012: Crate & Barrel no longer carries this product.
And then there's the TableMag, made in Belgium and available at Rose, in Brussels.
Restoration Hardware has a nice-looking magazine rack, "handcrafted of brass, iron and aluminum" - and "roomy enough for stacks of reading material." That could be good - but for some people, racks that limit you to 8 or 12 magazines might be better! [via The New York Times] Update on Nov. 30, 2012: Restoration Hardware no longer sells this magazine rack.
Bago Luma has this Chairside magazine rack, available from Carolina Rustica and Comfort House. When I first looked at this I thought it was made of cane - but it's actually made of hand-forged iron! Update on Nov. 30, 2012: Bago Luma has gone out of business, so this magazine rack is no longer available.
Here's a simple elegant magazine rack, made of teak and leather. Update on March 20, 2016: I'm no longer finding this rack anywhere.
And for yet another approach, here's the 8-clip magazine rack from Present Time, located in The Netherlands. In the U.S., you can buy it through Digs.
