florida design welcomes the new year

As we wind down 2007, Florida Design welcomes the new year as a beginning — looking ahead to the exciting projects that we will present to our readers in 2008.
In celebration of our successful launch of Palm Beach Home & Decor one year ago, we are expanding the budding publication to print four times a year, joining our fledgling Miami Home & Decor and our fountainhead magazine Florida Design quarterly on the newsstands.

As we head into our 18th year, Florida Design is experiencing an increase in the number of advertisements sold in Florida, proving that the slower economy did not impact our business. This is due to our increasing Florida Design’s advertising, marketing and sales budget while others are decreasing their expenses.

Moving into the fall, our book division will continue to expand our family of hard and soft cover coffee table books, which include “Florida Design’s Art Galleries & Fine Antiques,” “Florida Design’s Kitchen & Bath Design,” and our newest publication featuring fine interiors and architecture.

We trust you will benefit from our efforts in 2008 and we wish all of our readers a happy New Year.
