Domino Magazine Folds Under Weight of Crappy Economy

Domino rest in peace, Domino magazine folds, domino is dead

It’s official: Conde Nast is closing down home decor magazine Domino, due to the increasingly shaky economic outlook. “This decision to cease publication of the magazine and its website is driven entirely by the economy,” said the publisher. First Readymade closed its Berkeley office, now Domino is officially no more? While Domino was primarily a ‘shopping magazine’ (and clearing shopping isn’t resonating so much with consumers these days), Domino also was one of the first major magazines to bring attention to the green design movement, so we are really sorry to see it go. And of course, they featured Inhabitat last year, along with many of our green design friends and compadres, so we are very sad to hear this news. I guess things are really looking bleak in the shelter magazine category!? Domino, you will be missed!

    It’s awful , domino was a great read but it’s difficult to see how they can compete with all the online content!

    If you really need some inspiration the Interior design Magazine has a great blog on their website or you could try Largom- it’s a new one but it’s quite good
