We’re perfectly in favor of magazine hoarding. Months’ worth of visual inspiration, tear-outs from years gone by, and even the occasional vintage read scored on eBay certainly have a place in any stimulating home. But here’s a tough reality: All that paper can end up looking a little cluttered.

Luckily, an old-school decor staple is having a high-design comeback. Elegantly designed magazine racks are made to show off your ever-growing piles of magazines instead of just stowing them away in storage. Whether you find yourself drawn to glamorous brass accents or simple plywood designs, there’s sure to be a magazine storage solution that cuts down on your clutter and brings a refreshing element to your space. With new, enticing options available in every material, from Lucite and marble to rattan and iron, there’s no shortage of ways to transform that stack of mags into something even more special. Shop our current favorites below.

The Tiny Tuck-Away

Here’s a small-space solution for making that stack look tidy. This narrow rack can easily stow a few issues and then be neatly tucked away on a bookcase.

The Fanned-Out File Holder

Consider a file holder to keep just a few magazines displayed within arm’s reach. This option fits perfectly on a desk or coffee table.

The Sleek Situation

Prevent visual clutter with a magazine rack that comes complete with a sleek leather pocket. The elegant curves of this option make it a great piece for contemporary spaces.

The Rustic Reader

If you favor more of a contemporary farmhouse style, opt for this piece from Hearth & Hand with Magnolia. A wood handle lends a rustic touch to its metal finish.

The Better Than Basic

An ultra-simple brass and leather magazine rack is easy to fold up when not in use. Cutouts also make it easy to transport, so you can bring your to-be-read pile with you from reading nook to bedside.

The sleek sloping sides of this white oak make it a dreamy pick for a minimalist home. It’s designed and made in Japan by Saito Wood Co.—a company that has been making magic with plywood for three generations.

The Circular Seat

For an option that makes a bold statement in a minimal package, consider this rack by Umbra Shift. Set it on a side table if you want it to draw plenty of attention.

The Clear Case

A clear acrylic magazine rack is perfectly cool, especially if you find yourself drawn to contemporary style. Leave it only halfway filled to let its design really shine.

The Handsome Holder

Problem: You need somewhere to place your prized vintage magazine collection. Solution: this museum-worthy marble and brass fixture.

The Simple Selection

A touch of rose gold lends a sweet contrast to the black mesh pocket of this rack, while its gently curved legs give it modern appeal.
