Saddle yourself with this $29,500 magazine rack by Hermès

Where else to store your magazines but in a very expensive magazine rack

French high-fashion house Hermès has come a long way since its genesis in 1837 as a maker of equestrian goods. Very humble beginnings, yes, but the brand has always had an eye for making the ordinary extraordinary. This is the company that gave us a $91,571 foosball table, a $5,826 long board, and our favourite yet, a $29,500 Equilibre d’Hermes magazine rack.

As a nod to its equestrian roots, the Equilibre d’Hermès rack comes inspired by a 19th-century saddlebag. Measuring 30cm by 55cm, it’s handmade in France from solid natural maplewood and soft (but robust) calfskin leather. As part of a wider collection of decorative objects, it evokes simplicity and style in equal measure, and will look just stellar in your living room loaded up with every precious back issue that you’ve got.
