Dwell Named Hottest in Home Design and Lifestyle in Adweek’s Annual Hot List

The annual list celebrates the people and news organizations that brought the most captivating coverage to readers

New York, NYMarch 13, 2024Recurrent is proud to announce that Dwell was named to Adweek’s 2024 Hot List. Dwell was the winner of the Home Design and Lifestyle category on the annual Media list, which acknowledges the most exciting people, platforms, and companies across all audience categories. 

Dwell was honored for continuing to advance its mission of championing design that improves people’s lives with an editorial team working collectively across all of our platforms—from social media to a 24-year-old print magazine. According to AdWeek, Dwell has become a one-stop shop for home and home improvement lovers. 

 “It’s an honor to be included in Adweek’s annual Hot List,” said William Hanley, Editor-in-Chief of Dwell. “We believe in leading with a good story and then choosing the right platforms to tell it, meeting our subscribers wherever they are. In every house we cover, a reader can find new ideas about what a home can and should be, dig into how a design became a reality, and discover details that could apply to their own spaces no matter where they live–we even offer a marketplace if you want to bring some of the furniture, lighting, and other products we feature home. Those are the reasons why our readers and advertising partners keep coming back to Dwell. Our recent success is thanks to the hard work of our incredibly talented team, and we’re thrilled to be recognized alongside such an esteemed group of media brands.” 

Several recent accomplishments led to Dwell’s inclusion in the 2024 Hot List. Last year, Dwell released its inaugural “Money Issue,” which had the brand’s highest paid circulation of 2023. With robust print, digital, email, and social strategies, Dwell reached an all-time high of digital subscribers in February 2024, largely driven by print/digital combination plans. Overall, the brand experienced a 15% year-over-year revenue growth between 2022 and 2023. 

As Dwell approaches its 25th anniversary, it’s particularly special to be recognized for its impact and growth,” said Lauren Bertolini, General Manager of Dwell. “Bill and the team have done a phenomenal job of evolving the brand to make sure it speaks to every type of home dweller on every platform. Dwell has accomplished so much in recent years, and I’m excited about how we’ll continue to build on this accomplishment and momentum.”
