Even the tidiest among us like to keep back issues of our favorite magazines. Maybe page 68 of that Wallpaper has a chair you swore you’d get someday, or maybe you want to finally finish that Ian Parker story in The New Yorker. There’s no need to purge, but we do recommend an elegant organizer to declutter and even display that stack of subscriptions. Here, we sniffed out some of the nicest-looking inexpensive magazine racks to keep your issues off the table and ready to read.

Floor magazine racks

This one might not have enough room for your entire stash of reading material – it’s more for carrying a curated selection. The handle is a nice touch for moving it when you’re tidying up or adjusting your feng shui.

A rose-gold rack (it says it’s for books, but magazines would work) that really puts your issues of Kinfolk on display.

The clean birch wood of this wavy rack would look nice against some high-design covers, like an n+1 or even something heftier, like the Sqirl cookbook.

Magazine rack on legs

Something see-through — an extension of our love for all things clear — to store your most artful Broccoli magazine covers.

$23

A perforated stand with little hairpin legs that’s industrial but sophisticated.

Here’s another mod rack with curvy, fishtail legs.

Wall magazine racks

An extremely handsome wall-mounted magazine rack that you could set at two different angles.

These mini wall-mounted baskets look best in multiples and kept uncluttered (maybe choose two or three of your favorite publications to display in each).

You have some options here: hang it up on the wall or keep it low to the ground. It’s also big enough to fit LPs, and much more understated than a typical record stand.

Wall-hanging racks tend to come in basket form, but this one’s a punchy, open shelf-style that’s best suited for displaying your hardcover and less-floppy magazines.

Sometimes tiered, wall-mounted magazine organizers can make your space feel like a doctor’s office, which is why we like the minimal metal finish of this one.
