How to Make Magazines a Stylish Part of Your Decor

In our humble opinion, you can never have too many magazines. Forget reading on a tablet or e-reader: There’s something to be said about thumbing through the tangible pages of your favorite subscription; dog-earing your favorite tips, tricks, recipes, and stories to remember for later.

But if you’re like us and tend to unapologetically hoard lots of print issues, it can be hard to stay organized. Instead of letting those pages pile up, we’ve rounded up a few stylish ways to store them. Try these easy solutions to put your go-to reads on display.

Converted Crate

Repurpose an old crate with some wheels for a chic, portable storage option that blends with any rustic decor.


Scandi Style

Keep those colorful covers in check with the rest of your space by placing them in a sleek, neutral canvas holder, like this one from Denmark-based Ok Design.

A Crate-Turned-Table

A Hollow Bench

Fill up the space in these storage containers with magazines instead of shoes, for an added visual element.

Use Magazine Holders
