We all love getting our favorite magazines in the mail. It’s fun to browse a whole new issue and read stories and fun facts about the things we are interested in. What none of us love is storing them—especially in our forever space-starved New York City apartments—until we have time to peruse the periodicals and hopefully toss. There are, however, many handsome magazine organizers that not only keep our weeklies and monthlies neat but also look handsome on their own. Here’s a roundup of our favorites:
Grid Magazine Storage
Use one or multiples of this wall mounted copper-finish wire grid basket from CB2 to get your magazines off the ground and tables. You can’t go wrong with this bad boy’s $29 price tag.
MW Magazine Rack
If minimalism is your style, DWR’s MW—named for being shaped like the two letters—is a pretty good bet. It’s light and durable and doesn’t feel like a hefty piece of furniture in a small place.
Moulins de Aries Trug
If you like the rustic look, this reclaimed wood and iron magazine and book storage beauty with two compartments from Ballard Design will be a handsome old-timey addition to your apartment.
This multifunctional magazine and side table duo has been around since 1999 and for good reason too—it’s a table with a magazine rack but set it up vertically and it’s a laptop stand. It’s made of birch plywood and comes in a variety of finishes. The table can be purchased from different retailers and vendors including DWR and AllModern.
Galen Magazine Rack
A mix of rich leather and brass finish, this Crate and Barrel sling-style number reminds us of the magazine racks we used to see in offices. The $149 piece, however, is updated and has a warmth that the old style racks missed.
