Christmas is usually seen as a perfect time of year for catching up with friends and family. But aside from all the meet-ups, Christmas is also a great time to catch up on some reading. The period between Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve, in particular, is often something of a relaxed time away from all the dinners, parties and get-togethers. What better time to get away from the TV and chill out with a magazine or book? But how best to organise printed matter, especially at such a busy time? Here are a few ideas currently available at Dotmaison.
The Diamond Raster Magazine Rack by Present Time (above), available in copper or black, is a wonderful way to organise some light reading. Able to hold over 10 magazines, the modern design of the magazine rack is a useful way to keep magazine collections uncluttered and free from surfaces and furniture. The metal triangular frame is solidly constructed and is ideally placed anywhere in the home.
The Gazette Magazine Rack from Umbra is another design able to free up space and organise reading material in style. Created in a minimalist fashion in painted wood in white with ash wood handle, the magazine rack arrives pre-assembled and ready to store books and magazines. Makes a lovely addition to any home or office.
The Herman Magazine Stand by Ferm Living is another design aimed at magazine readers. The cotton canvas basket is secured to the solid metal frame with fine brass press-studs and a string of natural leather. Providing a unique look for securing reading matter, the stand is guaranteed to help keep all books, mags and papers out of harm’s way and the home distinctly clutter free.
The Oval Oak Cook Book Rest has been designed for reading matter providing info for a specific purpose – that is cooking and recipes! Perfect for exploring new possibilities in the kitchen, the Sagaform book rest is produced in solid oak and offers a lovely way to keep valued cookbooks safe and sound as culinary activities get underway. A lovely way to follow a recipe.
We hope these items have offered some food for thought when it comes to relaxing with some magazine and books this year. Happy reading!
