With sad hearts, we announce the closing of one of our favorite print magazines: Metropolitan Home.  What a loss to the whole industry.  This one really hurts as the magazine set the standard for modern design in America.  According to President & CEO of Hachette Filipacchi Media US, Alain Lemarchand, “We believe the best strategy in the upscale shelter segment is to boldly focus our resources and investment on ELLE DECOR, which is the ad-page leader in the US market.  Despite the downturn in ad pages that has affected all magazines, the ELLE DECOR brand has multiple opportunities for growth across all platforms.”

Our hearts go out to the entire staff of Metropolitan Home, especially Donna Warner and her editorial team.  The publication will truly be missed.
