Hachette Filipacchi will cease publication of Metropolitan Home with it’s December 2009 issue.
2 Years ago PointClickHome.com launched as a first of it’s kind online hub for ELLE DECOR, Metropolitan Home and HOME Magazine. HOME Magazine folded last year and now Metropolitan Home will be gone.
Met Home was our favorite of the three shelter magazines. Although it was deemed luxury home design, they always included a Hi/Low feature and an issue dedicated to renovation. Hachette recently redesigned PointClickHome.com and prominently highlighted their two magazines.
What will be become of PointClickHome.com? With only one magazine in the stable will they just re-org under ELLEDECOR.com which currently resides under the PointClickHome?
We recently interviewed Anne E. Collins who is the online editor of PointClickHome.com and hope that she and her team will come through this process unscathed.
editors note: Timothy Dahl worked at HFM US and helped launch PointClickHome.com. His thoughts go out to those effected by this closing.
