Aspiring home décor and accessories designers nationwide will be given the opportunity to submit their original work for the Foundary’s second Designer Search contest, now through March 7. Foundary members will vote among the top finalists to determine who will be featured and sold on the Foundary website.

In order to submit an application, contestants must first become a fan of the Foundary by “liking” the Facebook page. The deadline for submissions is March 7. On April 2, the Foundary will announce finalists. Foundary members will be able to vote for their favorite designer through April 20. The winner will be announced on April 23.

"We believe the Designer Search contest provides a necessary platform for emerging designers. It gives deserving participants the opportunity to showcase their work," said Rob Anderson, General Manager for the Foundary. "We're hunting for fresh talent to compliment the Foundary's limited-time sales events."

All applicants must be at least 18 years of age by January 1, 2012, and a legal resident of the U.S. or able to obtain the necessary visa or waiver.

By visiting the Foundary, shoppers are invited to a free membership that allows them to receive daily emails featuring new, limited-time sales events. Exclusive sales events are announced daily, typically starting at 11 a.m. ET. Each announcement generally includes four or more different sales events, offering selections of products from a variety of home living categories. The majority of the Foundary events last three days (72 hours) or while supplies last. For more information,
