"Damn, damn, damn . . . "

Greetings all,

It's another sad day. We're losing Metropolitan Home. It seems to be official. Damn.

Sending out good thoughts to an amazing staff and mourning the loss of yet another amazing magazine.

Here's a link to the article here.

double damn,

I agree, double damn. I gave up on the magazine a while ago because it seemed to have become rather desperate in its clinging to a pallid version of Modernism. My partner, however, still liked it a lot and for that reason we kept the subscription going. There's nothing else to replace it. Elle Decor doesn't come close and WoI is in another league.

I totally agree. All our visual, tactile fun will be gone.

Darn it!!! I agree, it was in a niche of their own. Please, please, don't they dare take my Veranda away...

It is an upset. I fear more will follow on this path. Reinvention seems to be the new buzz word as designers are also leaving the field. The only thing constant is change.

Awful news.

Think about the cycle: if people don't redecorate/renovate, they don't make purchases.

If companies don't sell their fabric/furniture/fixtures, etc. The company doesn't make money.

If the companies don't make money, they don't have the budget to advertise.

If magazines don't have the advertisers...well, we know the rest of the story!

No offense to the many of people who enjoy Architectural Digest (I'm assuming that someone reads it), but I find it irritating that publications such as Met Home and Domino are shelved as A.D. continues to bore the masses monthly. sad.
