Domino Magazine Returns October 8th!

I’m so thrilled that Domino magazine has been relaunched and my hope is that it’s better than ever before! It already looks quite promising based on the website alone (love this gift guide!) — with their first print issue returning to newsstands October 8. I’m certain it will perform amazingly well given that no other magazine was able to successfully replace it since its demise four years ago. So many of us missed this publication!

Domino Magazine Is Back!

I was once an online columnist for Domino and for several years I helped produce trend reports and round ups under my editor, Cathy Halley. I was at a loss for words when my job was cut and they folded which was during, at least I thought, a time when they were the most popular ever. To this day, it remains a mystery why Conde Nast made that decision but I’m so glad that things have turned around for the better and that Domino is back to show us what the next face of the mag will look like.

Domino Magazine Is Back!

Under the lead of editor-in-chief Michelle Adams, who will fill the shoes of the former EIC Deborah Needleman, Michelle has some great ideas on how to merge new media with print by taking the magazine in a fresh direction — including the ability to shop directly from its pages. That was always something that I felt was sorely lacking with the original Domino because I wanted to buy so many things that I saw yet it was extremely challenging to source them. Michelle was the former founding editor of Lonny, a successful digital decorating magazine that is still going strong, but left Lonny to pursue a new direction – to lead Domino!

Here’s to a successful relaunch of Domino and I wish Michelle the absolute best with her magazine – and hope so badly that some of the original staffers return, too. I would simply love the return of Tori Mellot (who has since had twin daughters and is the design editor for Traditional Home magazine) because I adored her trend reports.

    I learned about Domino after they stopped, I think from you. I bought their book though. You have always been so enthusiastic about the magazine that I am looking forward to it. I noticed that it can only be bought in the US. I hope they will change that soon. I registered I am looking forward to take a look at their old issues.

    This is the most wonderful news! I saved every copy of Domino that I ever bought and was devastated when the magazine folded! Cheers to a bright new beginning!

    Yes Holly, I am so, so thrilled. I’ve been in love with the magazine since the very first issue in 2005 and was quite disappointed when it folded. The Domino that I’ve seen since then in print and online hasn’t quite captured the flair of the original Domino–it’s kind of like something is missing. So I’m so excited that they decided to bring it back full force. Can’t wait to see it.

  13. Elana Kilkenny commented

    Thrilled to hear about this. Like many of you I loved Domino magazine and have also kept every copy of the magazine. I share your hopes Holly that some of the original staff come back like Tori and Dara C. I have yet to see a magazine that is filled page-to-page with such wonderful inspiration, beauty and resources. I look forward to new content and to seeing what Michelle Adams brings in terms of a fresh outlook. It is nice to see in this world where so much can be deemed as replaceable that some things that were truly special have a second or third life…

    I’m so excited to see what new things they have in store for us! I still have every single one of the old issues (and purchased the quarterlies though I wasn’t as pleased with those), so I can’t wait to keep adding to my stack!

    So ecstatic about this news! I always loved Domino for its accessible design and sourcing of affordable products. I have been seeing news of this relaunch popping up everywhere. I am so excited I shared it on my own blog as well. Can’t wait to see the new issue and do some shopping!

    Yes!!! Oh my goodness I am looking forward to this! There has not been another magazine to replace Domino and I am so happy they’ll be back. I would love to see more of the spaces where artists and creatives all do their stuff. Their inspiration boards, their supplies, their creative mess, yes I would love to see that.

    @Nick – Why don’t you ask Domino that question, they don’t have their photographers listed on their website with imagery so that’s a question you can take to them.

  26. Tracy O'Brien commented
    October 5th, 2013 at 4:04pm

    It is good news, but apparently didn’t get a great review in the NY Times last week and if I’m correct, I saw it on the newsstands for $12.00 – which I feel is a ridiculous price now that mags are digital. I will check it out. ;-)

    @Sarah – Yeah I read that but honestly, the NYTimes is just the opinion of one reporter who, through the article, I could tell already had an opinion about Ms. Adams long before writing the article. These are always the articles I take with a grain of salt.

  38. Avery commented

    I am avid amateur decorator and help friends and family when it comes to making the most of their living spaces. I still have ALL of my old issues of Domino, including the original first issue with Carolina Herrera, Jr. on the cover. I also own the Domino Decorating guide. I constantly refer back to those magazines and the book for inspiration. I hope that I can find a copy of it locally next week when it is released. I also hope that Sarah Ruffin Costello makes a return to the magazine.

    well, considering I still have a giant stack of all my old domino issues AND even did a blog post about missing it [], I have to say this news (which there have been rumors of for quote awhile with the online presence) makes me very happy. love domino. I think, in part, because all of the design domino featured seemed somehow accessible. you could picture it in your home.

I checked out their website and noticed though that the new Domino looks a lot like the old Lonny. Has anyone noticed this too?

    Looks like a gorgeous issue Holly. That second last image of the small living room is just stunning, I love all of the cushions on the sofa and the three rugs(?) with the frames above and collages. Quite surprising how so much going on works so well in a small room.

    I went to 3 newsstands and finally found the new Domino at the local supermarket. I remember the old Domino as warm and a little funky. The new one seems a bit “cold.”
