Forget The Shelves: Sit On Your Magazines

Forget The Shelves: Sit On Your Magazines

As much as we've tried to thin down the magazines that come into the home, there will still be a few publications we truly like to have in hand and will continue keeping. We suspect that your house is similar, so instead of stocking your bookcases full of back issues, try putting them to use instead — as seating!

NJUStudio has released their new Magazine Stool and it's retailing for $150USD. We're guessing that creative minds might be able to duplicate the look with less cost, but either way, retail or diy, it's quite pleasing to the eye.

The spines of magazines are always fun to look at and provide a bit of unexpectedness, plus in this case, they double as seating while still allowing you easy access to them when you want to flip back through an issue. Although it doesn't exactly look like the spot to spend 4 days reading all the Harry Potter books from beginning to end before the last movie comes out — it's still a fun idea for having a small place for a guest to land at a party.

What do you think of the look? Should the magazines have stayed on the shelf? Let us know below!
