Domino Magazine Folds Under Weight of Crappy Economy

Domino rest in peace, Domino magazine folds, domino is dead [1]

It’s official: Conde Nast is closing down home decor magazine Domino [2], due to the increasingly shaky economic outlook. “This decision to cease publication of the magazine and its website is driven entirely by the economy,” [3] said the publisher. First Readymade [4] 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 [5] green design movement [6], so we are really sorry to see it go. And of course, they featured Inhabitat last year [6], 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!
