Have you checked out the new online magazines? They’re changing how we flip through the pages of our monthly glossies, and in this new digital age, where we even read books electronically, shelter magazines that are 100 percent online are an ever-growing trend. Check out these top four leading online magazines that will get you hooked!
One of the newest on the online magazine scene, Rue is making a big, pretty splash. Issue five was released in May and is filled with 180 pages of features, products and photos that will keep you hooked. We love Rue because it feels fresh, young and accessible — the editors of Rue have found the perfect balance of showing readers what they can buy and ideas they can use in their own home, while still making us swoon.
The matriarch of online magazines is Lonny, born from former employees of the beloved Domino (may she rest in peace), it set the standard in this new publishing trend. Lonny features interviews with some of the leading designers in the world alongside mind-blowing spreads of interiors that will live in our dreams. Of all the online shelter magazines, the layout of Lonny reads most like an ink-and-paper glossy.
The gals behind High Gloss aren’t messing around — this online magazine is glamour and swank to the max. Every single page oozes with the best of the best of the best. Our favorite feature in the pretty pages of High Gloss? What’s in your bag, where well-known people in fashion and design give us a sneak peek at what’s floating around in the bottom of their purse (that purse is most likely a Birkin, but hey, a girl can dream).
Launched at the beginning of 2011, Matchbook is like your sweet friend that always has a little whimsical, dreamy look in her eyes, wears pretty vintage floral dresses to meet you for lunch and has that air about her that makes you think she would have loved living in the 1940s. To keep readers interested in between issues, Matchbook also has The Daily Spark — a blog full of daily design and living inspiration.
The top reasons to go online to get your next magazine fix — being digital allows the mags to have extra-long features with more amazing images to drool over, the ability to click through on a product that you love and go straight to the website where it’s available — and best of all, they’re free to read!
