Former Domino Editor Launches Online-Only Design Magazine, Lonny

Remember when those dark days of winter became a little more dark when Condé Nast announced that they were folding Domino back in late January? We do. Heck, we even ran a contest featuring reader’s fondest memories about the now-absent home magazine. But perhaps this fall, that feeling of warmth and possibility might return to all of our now-frigid hearts (are we being too dramatic here?) with an announcement a reader just send our way:

Michelle Adams, who served as market editor of the now defunct Domino magazine, is launching Lonny Magazine, an online decorating and lifestyle publication. Photographer Patrick Cline will also help lead the magazine. The magazine will publish on a bimonthly basis in a traditional print magazine format on its Web site. It is expected to launch in October.

Anxious to see it. We’re not so sure about its lifespan should it stay in that current PDF-style format, as a lack of linkable content might prove to be something of a blunder for the project (same goes for any web-based project that’s built in a similar way), but we’ll certainly wait to see what comes of it before we pass any judgment. Our fingers are certainly crossed that it rekindles some of that Domino greatness.
