How to Organize Your Current Magazines: 9 Magazine Racks

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.

magazine rack, chrome

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.

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.

iron 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.

teak and leather magazine rack

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.

magazine rack with 8 clips

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.
