Modern Luxury will increase the frequency of eight of its luxury lifestyle titles beginning next year, as well as expand its titles Interiors and Weddings to Boston and Philadelphia.
Interiors is Modern Luxury’s interior design magazine published quarterly, and Weddings is its wedding planning title, which it rebranded last year.
Interiors currently publishes in Atlanta, California, Chicago, Scottsdale, South Florida and Texas, while Weddings publishes in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, South Florida, California and Washington, D.C.
Beginning with the January 2018 issue, Austin Way, Boston Common, Philadelphia Style and Vegas magazines will increase their frequency from six issues per year to 10.
Capitol File, Gotham, Michigan Avenue and Los Angeles Confidential will increase to eight publications per year. Those titles will have a circulation of 65,000 copies, except for Capitol File, which prints 50,000 copies.
Modern Luxury CEO Michael Dickey stated, “At Modern Luxury our increased distribution is a response to the rapidly growing economy, as well as positive reader and client feedback.”
With the increased frequency of its local luxury regional titles and expanded Weddings and Interiors brands, Modern Luxury’s portfolio will grow to 90 magazines in 24 markets in 2018.
Modern Luxury acquired GreenGale Publishing (formerly Niche Media) in April and has since expanded its sales, marketing and editorial staff.
The company also announced several promotions Wednesday.
John Colabelli, group publisher and founder of Philadelphia Style, a former GreenGale Publishing title, will now oversee Modern Luxury’s publications in the Philadelphia region, including Interiors Philadelphia, Weddings Philadelphia and the annual edition of Charity & Social Datebook, a city guide featuring major charity, cultural and social events.
Kristin Detterline is now Philadelphia group editor. She will remain editor-in-chief of Philadelphia Style, as well as oversee the new publications.
Lisa Pierpont has been promoted to Boston group editor. She will maintain her role as editor-in-chief of Boston Common, as well as oversee the new publications.
