Even in today’s digitized world, there is still a place for classically printed reading matter. Magazines, books and the design structures that hold them, not only provide reading matter, but also an elegant addition to the home. Rooms equipped with book shelves, magazine racks and organisers offer the look of sophistication that an extra app on a smartphone or tablet simply does not.
With that in mind, here at Dotmaison, we thought we’d take the start of a New Year as a good opportunity to explore a few ways to bring this type of sophisticated style into focus.
The Curva Magazine Holder from AYTM is made from strong metal to provide a reliable place to organise that pile of magazines that were precariously lying around the place. Classically modern, striking and elegant, the iconic look of the magazine rack is sure to bring an outstanding retro look to the living room or study. Available in black, gold and silver, so you can attune to any room’s colour scheme.
Another striking method of storing magazines is offered by the Herman Magazine Stand by Ferm Living. A distinct impression is created by the metal framed cotton basket; a perfect place for all your reading materials of books, papers and mags. Securely held to the frame by brass studs, the strong stand is reliable and solid. Great as a charming companion to relaxing on the sofa in the living room and taking some time out.
Umbra’s design for holding magazines is just as creative and distinct. The Zina Magazine Rack Metal, Titanium offers a neat and tidy way of storing papers and magazines with a rack that can be attached to any wall with the included hardware. The rack can also simply be used on the floor as a free standing organiser. Artful and modern, the strong rack is able to hold up to 10 magazines.
Smaller books could be added to the haul of the Cubiko Organiser, Black. Made by Umbra, the organiser provides an inspired method of storing and organising pocket items. Keys, documents, cards and tickets can find a beautifully made shelf space with the organiser. The minimalistic and practical wall organiser also doubles as a mirror, further elaborating on its usefulness. Easy to install and reach inside for the contents, the storage space is a superbly stylish way to store and access all kinds of daily essentials.
