A couch and coffee table are top of mind when furnishing a living room, with lamps and lounge chairs added if space allows. A magazine rack, while admittedly not essential, is an underrated and design-forward accessory. Beyond serving as a receptacle for notable print issues, a magazine rack can make a space feel more complete: molded plywood enhances a minimal, mid-century-inspired space, while a powder-coated steel frame is in keeping with contemporary trends. Consider it a low-lift way to sample a new aesthetic, or simply bring cohesion to a room.
