Editor in Chief and Executive Vice President of Content


Amanda Dameron, who joined Dwell in 2008, has covered design and architecture for the last 15 years, serving as an on-staff editor at Architectural Digest and Western Interiors and Design in Los Angeles. Her work has appeared in numerous domestic and international titles, including Condé Nast Traveler, Los Angeles magazine, Urbis, Vogue Living and Elle Décor UK. As editor in chief of Dwell magazine, and now executive vice president of content, she directs content across all the company’s platforms, extending from print and digital to live events, e-commerce, research and other ancillary products. She has served on numerous design and architecture juries, including AIA East Bay, ICFF in New York and the ASME National Magazine Awards. In addition to her role at Dwell, Dameron was hand-selected by Ellen DeGeneres to serve as a lead judge for every episode of Ellen’s Design Challenge—a furniture design competition series, which debuted on HGTV in 2015. She has also appeared as a design expert on PBS, Fox Business, ABC News and the Nate Berkus Show. In 2014, the Huffington Post called Dameron “one of the most influential voices in the world of modern design.”
