Interior Design Changes Hands

ID_cover.jpgIt’s official: Interior Design is moving house. The magazine is among the design-oriented bunch of Reed Business Information print and online publications that have been acquired by Sandow Media, which publishes titles such as NewBeauty and Worth. The deal also includes RBI’s Furniture Today group: Furniture Today, Gifts & Decorative Accessories, Home Textiles Today, Casual Living, Home Accents Today, Kids Today, and Playthings. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. Sandow, a portfolio company of private equity firm Veronis Suhler Stevenson, plans to hire more than 100 employees and expand its current New York City operations. The RBI facility in Greensboro, North Carolina will also become part of Sandow Media. “As design continues to increase its impact throughout our world, this is a terrific and exciting transition for Interior Design,” said the magazine’s publisher and vice president, Mark Strauss. “With Interior Design being the leading voice and advocate for the professional design community, there are tremendous opportunities moving ahead.”
