Books are a great way to add texture and personality to any room, but they don’t just have to sit on a shelf.


I love the look of books – or in this case – magazines, stacked on the floor. They allow you to add some additional height and interest to your space. Think of them as your own mini still-life art installation – one that you can change all the time.

But I’m particularly smitten with the idea of belting your collection. It makes the stack feel organized and very intentional. This would be the perfect solution for my collection of Kinfolk magazines. I’ve actually done this before with my magazine collection in my old Apt34 studio (you can see it here), but this stack is held together with an actual book belt! I didn’t even know there was such a thing, but I should have guessed. I’m so getting one of these to display some books in our house.

What do you think? Are you into the belted book look?!
