New stuff

After reading about the fab coming out party for the new Domino magazine over at Design Sponge, I felt compelled to run out and get a copy. I had to turn up my nose while at B&N when I was informed that they weren't going to be getting any in, and headed over to another local media source instead, where I scored a crisp copy in two seconds flat. After spending a little lounge time in the sun with it this afternoon, I 've gotta say that it's a letdown. I don't know what I was hoping for from a magazine that claims to be the housewares version of Lucky, but it's really just not my style. A little heavy on the kitsch and cottage. What I really want is a shopping magazine for exclusively modern, or, better yet, I want a magazine to tell me how to score an $8K B&B Italia sofa for a deal or how to get 10 swank chairs for my not-yet-in-existence new dining table that cost less than $400 each. That kind of info, I could use....
I was expecting greatness, but somehow a mag that tells me how to paint the inside of my bookcase a purdy color falls a little short.
Sigh.

I agree, I don't know what I was expecting but that wasn't it. :o(
