FF SU08 coverA (Small) Fabulous Floors Magazine will continue:

GHENT, NY — In the wake of the unexpected passing of its founder, FABULOUS FLOORS Magazine, the first consumer publication devoted to floor décor, will continue publishing its quarterly issues.

“We will finish the Summer issue which Publisher Sonna Calandrino had begun prior to her death in late May, although we have had to push back production, printing and distribution some two to three weeks,” said Acting Publisher Richard Howland.

“Right now, our advertisers have indicated they will continue to support the title. For the Summer issue, a few last-minute advertisers have taken advantage of the timing to come aboard,” Howland added.

Looking ahead, Peachtree Communications, Inc., parent company of FABULOUS FLOORS, is planning its annual Fall design issue with bonus distribution to the American Society of Interior Designers as a memorial to the late publisher, largely at the request of advertisers and industry partners.

Peachtree Communications, Inc. which specializes in consulting, advertising, merchandising, PR and web content for the flooring industry, also was founded by Sonna Calandrino and will continue under the direction of her partner and executive vice president Richard Howland.
