Those with large magazine collections may not have considered the possibilities of wall storage. This rounded magazine rack would enable the avid reader to clear off tables and shelves and to avoid filling floor-bound holders with so many journals and periodicals inside.

Tim Alpen's design for Balzar Beskow embodies outside-of-the-box thought, despite the common tendancy to create rigid furnishings intended for stashing rectilinear items. Called the Pipe Magazine Rack, this piece resembles a carefully sanded wooden log that's been halved and hollowed out. A slot along its length provides a place to slip reading materials within.

Another version of this rounded magazine rack has the majority of the front removed, providing a place to tuck in books, and hooks to hang garments, accessories and decorations.
