Dwell Increases Its New York Presence

Dwell is increasing its mark on New York. The magazine is setting up permanent shop at a new office at 192 Lexington Ave. (in case you feel like stalking) that will double the capacity of its current office, at 8 West 36th Street. The move will happen early next month, and a full Dwell creative team will migrate there by early next year.

Dwell has always been a bicoastal media company, and as we continue to grow, we see an immense upside in having our creative team working together in New York,” said Dwell Media president Michela O’Connor Abrams, in a statement. “This has been a natural progression and we’re thrilled.”

In other Dwell news, the magazine is adding William Lamb as a senior editor. Lamb will join editor-in-chief Amanda Dameron, senior editor Kelsey Keith and associate editor Diana Budds in the Lexington Avenue office.

Write a Feature on Fabulous New York Homes for Dwell

Still going strong after 13 years, Dwell sets itself apart from other design magazines by providing insights on modern design and architecture that are as fresh as they are practical . “We don’t want people to create an artificial idea of how they live in their home,” said editor-in-chief Amanda Dameron. “We tell the owners to clean their house as if they’re having a good friend over. Don’t go buying pricey flowers!”

Dameron says that even though her team receives more than enough pitches, one of the best ways to distinguish your submission is to get behind a camera. ”We put a lot of resources behind how we tell our stories visually. So when we’re reviewing initial ideas, having good pics always helps.”

New York and Dwell to Launch Festival, Co-Branded Issue

New York magazine and Dwell are joining forces to launch a week-long design-focused festival and co-branded issue. The festival will be from October 1 through 7. The weeklong event will celebrate architecture and design and feature tours of some of the most interesting houses in Brooklyn and Manhattan.

The co-branded publication will be overseen by New York’s Wendy Goodman and Dwell’s Amanda Dameron. It will contain designer profiles, a guide to the festival and more. The untitled work will be included in Dwell’s October issue and New York’s September 24 issue. It will also be available on newsstands, with a total distribution of 150,000.

“Coming on the heels of our successful new stand-alone magazine New York Design Hunting, this partnership with Dwell Media is an exciting opportunity to further our impact in the design world,” said New York’s Publisher, Larry Burstein. “This is the first time in recent years that we’ve teamed up in this way with another magazine, and doing so with an influential brand like Dwell the results are sure to be phenomenal.”

Dwell Wants Authenticity in Home Design

The world of design can be intimidating to some, but Dwell‘s bi-coastal team of editors strives to show the field’s friendlier, welcoming side.

Dwell has always been about showing real people in real homes,” said editor-in-chief Amanda Dameron. “We don’t send stylists, and we don’t want people to create an artificial idea of how they live in their home.”

With its recent expansion, the pub is wide open to ambitious freelancers — and photographers. “We put a lot of resources behind how we tell our stories visually. So when we’re reviewing initial ideas, having good pics always helps,” Dameron said.

Dwell Makes Changes

Dwell has made a few changes to help the magazine reach an East Coast audience. The magazine has promoted Amanda Dameron from Executive Editor to Editor-in-Chief and Alejandro Chavetta from Art Director to Creative Director. Adweek reports that Dwell also hired Anna Alexander as a Photo Editor and Kelsey Keith as a Senior Editor.

Dameron is stationed here because Michela O’Connor Abrams, Dwell Media’s Publisher, thinks it’ll help expand the brand.

“Moving her to New York was deliberate because it was really critical to me that the world know that we take New York very seriously,” O’Connor Abrams told Adweek. “The perception was we were a West Coast-based company, even though we always had editors flying all over the world.”
