Today is a big day for the Fab-team in New York, Pune and especially Berlin: Fab.com continues it's expansion and will be available in 13 more countries in addition to the 3 existing ones (US, Germany and Austria).
Here are some thoughts on why we decided to move so quick:
Our members want it
In the last weeks we had tons of requests by people all over Europe to facilitate shipping to them - literally close to 100.000 people have signed up at Fab.com or Fab.de just to get inspiration and make discoveries, without any chance to buy the great designs we offer. Now at least we can cater to some of them! Our Facebook Europe page (https://www.facebook.com/FabEurope) launched just 6 days ago and counts already more than 5.000 members - Wow! This is because design is appreciated all over Europe and we are excited to make people smile in way more countries
Our suppliers want it
It makes us at Fab.com extremely happy and excited to be able to help so many designers and suppliers to finally reach a big crowd, many times in countries that they didn't even sell to. It's a great feeling to make them even more happy
We want it
Design is a universal language. It's a lifestyle. Good design exists in every country and every region of the world. Our vision is to help people everywhere benefit from good design.
So what does that mean?
1. 1. As of today, people from the UK, France, Ireland, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, Finland, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Luxembourg, the Czech Republic and Estonia can now discover and buy everyday designs from Fab. Just go to Fab.de, create an account and we will ship it to you!
2. Sweden, Poland and Cyprus are following as soon as of next week
3. We will be making strategic investments in the coming weeks to spread Fab even further across Europe, in more languages and with even more local products.
Very proud of what the Fab-team has achieved in the past weeks and excited about the feedback of people around Europe!
I guess with worries about the Euro and other issues there is plenty of reason to make people smile a bit more often across Europe.
Smile - you're designed to!
