Domino Magazine Folds Under Weight of Crappy Economy
Posted By Jill Fehrenbacher On January 28, 2009 @ 4:08 pm In Announcements | 3 Comments
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!
