Fab.com Invite Code

June 28th, 20118:40 pm @


Fab.com is the newest sample sale site on the circuit, started by an entrepreneur and a Dwell contributor and Design Within Reach alum. Here is the membership invitation for Fab.

They herald themselves as a lifestyle site with daily design everyone, which they’ve been delivering on since they started June 9, 2011. (It’s interesting to note that they initially launched in February 2011 as a group-buying platform for gay men, a “Groupon for gays” and when that didn’t pan out they pivoted into a design-focused sample and flash-sale site.) Word has it even Ashton Kutcher has jumped on the bandwagon by investing. And it’s no wonder because Fab.com has an amazing selection of furniture, art, lighting, accessories and other design goods we crave, including a series of fully restored vintage typewriters. Really!
