Introducing: Lonny magazine

In a time when shelter publications are turning their last pages...

OUR MISSION is to reopen the doors of accessible design. By embracing an online platform we provide inspiration at the click of a finger, directly connecting our readers to their favorite products and resources. Our freedom from page limits means that we can share more content in each issue, delivering an intimate look into the way people really live.
At Lonny, we value independent thinking and believe not in following trends but rather in making choices that lead to happiness. We believe that good design and affordable design can coexist and that true inspiration can be found in the teeniest of homes or in the grandest of spaces.

Coming Fall 2009 ;)

Did you mean 'good design and affordable design' are not mutually exclusive?

this is SO needed!
thank you!

The Goods Design said...

What great news! Is there somewhere we can sign up online to get Lonny updates?

Marni said...

That's wonderful, good for you. I started my blog b/c of the demise of Domino (and other shelter mags). As a style/design writer, it's scary that editorial outlets are diminishing. At least we can keep up the love online.

Chic Coles (Cole Design) said...

Looks so fun! Cannot wait for the first issue this fall!

Wow, this debut issue is amazing, and I'm really looking forward to see what's next for Lonny. I just noticed that page 26 features my studio's Midwest Seed Bombs, which are available at Jayson Home and Garden in Chicago [as mentioned in Lonny], and also in our own Etsy shop.

interscapesMichelle said...

If ever your imagination is captured by organic gardening that benefits whole Communities via support of local foodbanks, local park development & personal use - please let me know. Gorgeous, lush & lavish edibles plus native and rare ornamentals provide such great design possibilities for both interior and exterior. Once again: doing good by doing well! I'm so excited to see the range of directions you'll explore this year.
