This Just In: Domino to Close

You'd better sit down for this. I came across some terrible news today that has sent me into shelter-mag mourning. Condé Nast has decided to fold its prize decorating magazine, Domino, just two weeks after sending in Senior Vice President Bill Wackermann to increase ad sales. The shelter category has seen the close of O at Home, Home, Cottage Living, and Wish this year alone, and last year we said goodbye to long-running title House and Garden and beloved newbie Blueprint. Seeing as we all named Domino as our favorite shelter magazine of 2008, this is a sad day for all of us. Hopefully, the magazine will live on in some format or another, but regardless, I'm stashing my issues away for safe-keeping.

OH NO!!!!! It is one of the only mags that I bother to open anymore...even though I agree that it has been sliding lately...I am distraught.

SO BIZARRE!! A friend and I were commenting on our subscriptions, thinking the issues were getting lame. Must have been because they were strapped for cash and phishing for things to cover!

This sucks. I agree Domino started out really great, had a lull the past year or two (or three) ...but I really felt it was coming back to the old Domino I knew and loved recently. Oh well, I have saved every issue, so at least I have that. It is seriously the ONLY shelter magazine I read.

No other magazine has brought me as much joy as Domino has over the years. I'm absolutely gutted that it's folding. I hope Conde Nast will give the subscriber an option as to which other publications we can choose from next if we have months left on our subscription. Though every one will pale in comparison to Domino. :-(

I too just renewed my subscription. That stinks. It was one of my favorites, and it was never too think, that it was heavy to carry around in my bag. That's sad news.

Looks like March will be the last month of publication. Sadwalletpop.com/blog/2009/01/28/conde-nast-folds-domino/

As much as I loved them, about 3 years ago I realized they all just recycled the same articles over and over. New Colors! Best places to shop! Why Blue is the new Navy. I now just read online sites like yours.

All of that being said, I know it's based on ad sales, but I think they could have charged a bit more for subscriptions. I loved how cheap it was to get a 2yr subscrip but I would have paid more.

I just feel like there are a ton of fashion magazines. This was the one younger market home magazine- it was just so well done. I'm still upset. Will there be one last issue or was the Zooey one it?

morgs, I kind of agree with you. Iused to love Lucky, but the last... oh maybe year or so it's fallen out of favor with e. They've had some fashion spreads with the fugliest ensembles I have ever seen!I'll mourn Domino. So... with all of these mags folding... which shelter magazine out there is still selling?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. We need to start a petition! This is bullshit. Total bullshit! No other design magazine matches Domino. It is amazing!!! I don't know how I will go on without it.!

That is heartbreaking. Domino was my favorite house mag, full of great tid-bits, appealed to my taste (their shopping trip suggestions were invaluable!) - loved their features and loved that they showed things for different price points (so I too could affordably decorate!) - I'm truly dissapointed, I was a loyal subscriber for five years until now, I guess...

Wow, that's awful. I knew there was a reason why I let my subscription lapse. I'll really miss it, that's for sure.

I just saw elsewhere that they are closing the website, too. I'll have too get a lot of stuff off of it before it goes. :(
