Deborah Needleman is the founding editor in chief of domino magazine. Launched by Condé Nast, domino has quickly become the leading guide to style and decorating in America, with both a devoted cult and mainstream following. In its first year, domino was honored with every media award for the best new magazine, including The Hot List Startup of the Year by Adweek, Top Launch of the Year by Media Industry Newsletter and The A-List 10 under 50 by Advertising Age. Needleman was named as a Top Talent to Watch from Women’s Wear Daily and a Circle of Excellence award winner by the International Furniture and Design Association (IFDA). In its third year, the magazine continues to grow and surpass all circulation goals the company has set for it, and currently has a rate base of 850K. It recently received two National Magazine Award nominations from the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME).
Needleman’s writing on gardens and design has appeared in The New York Times; Slate, where she penned “The Cranky Gardener” column; and House & Garden, where she was Editor at Large. She lives in Manhattan with her husband, Jacob Weisberg, and their two children.
