I can still remember the first time I saw an ad for the soon-to-be-published domino magazine. It was my senior year of college, and while pretending to pay attention to a lecture, I tapped my friend on the shoulder and whispered, “This is where I’m going to work.” Weeks later, I flew to New York and told Deborah Needleman that I would in fact sweep her floors if that’s what it took to be a part of the domino team. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that in a mere eight years, I would be in charge of bringing this beloved publication back to life.
Thanks to you, the passion for this brand never died. In fact, we have every reason to believe that it’s only grown stronger. During the four years since the last issue of domino was published, the economy has made us rethink the way we do business. Our solution—which we think is pretty clever—is to let you shop directly from our features while you read them.
So what does this mean? No more hunting for products, calling up showrooms, or bouncing around from site to site: we’ve made domino.com a fully shoppable marketplace so that you can add items to your basket whenever you see something you like. Or you can save them for later. (A few of my own picks are below!) Once again, we help you bring your style home—but this time, we can actually deliver it straight to your doorstep.
The original intention of the brilliant minds behind domino—the democratization of design—has now been taken to the next level. We’re so proud to be back, and so grateful to you for demanding it.
Happy holidays from the domino team!
