Magazine racks of various origins

This is my inherited magazine rack. It comes from my parents and I have seen it all my life. It is made from bamboo and still going strong. It will probably last longer than I myself live… I still think this is a beautiful magazine rack. Despite being used for decades it has no damages at all.

I usually do not keep magazines in it… They tend to curl up in there. Presently I keep the connection cords from the TV to my MacBook Pro in it.

The magazine rack above can be found at Designtorget. It costs SEK 395. They call it Tipack. Very simple. Right? Not sure I would like to pay SEK 395 for it though.

Also the magazine rack above is from Designtorget. Also costs SEK 395 like the other one. It is called Journal. Very simple too. Compare these two to the one below.

This one comes from Ikea. No, they do not sell it any more. I have had it for several years. It was meant to store magazines in until you carried them out to the recycling-container. The small hook at its back was meant for keeping a roll of cord for binding them into a bundle to carry them out. I think I paid something like SEK 39 or so for it. Very reasonable price…

This is how this rack looks with magazines in it.

Any less decorative than the designer models above from Designtorget? Not in my eyes. They are all black. Lacquered metal. This one is normally used in my storage room and for its original usage: to keep old magazines and newspapers in until I cary them out to the recycling-container. But it could in my opinion serve as a magazine rack in a visible place any time.
