You’d have to be living under a rock not to have heard about the launch of the Traditional Home-Lonny joint venture TradHome. The premiere issue, which debuted online a week ago, I’ve heard received more than seven million hits in its first 48 hours. Besides featuring stunning interiors, the magazine also gave pixel time to those whom they describe as the 20 New Trad Designers.
The party took place in the 1st Dibs Showroom on the 10th floor of the New York Design Center. Besides the stunning backdrop of antiques and art, the room was filled with a who’s-who of design elite. I’ll just say right now, I did a horrible job of capturing the mass of excitement and people at the party. I was simply too wrapped up visiting with Ann Maine, Michelle Adams, Patrick Cline, Jenny Bradley, Beth Brenner, Amy Bleier Long, and Krissa Rossbund (who all worked on the issue) as well as Jamie Drake, Nate Berkus, Robert Passal, Ashlina The Decorista, Marissa Marcantonio, and a host of Twitter and blog friends. Here’s a sampling.
Some views in the showrooms.
The next issue of TradHome goes live in September. We’ll be waiting!
