Gus* Modern is releasing its fall line of new designs, and we are always excited this time of year. There are a lot of things to love about Gus* -
They are a furniture design and manufacturing company based in Toronto, Canada. The Gus* Modern Collection, comprised of upholstered seating, dining, beds, accents, lighting and accessories, can be found at fine independent furniture showrooms across North America and select international showrooms. In addition to their retail collection, they also provide custom and private label design and manufacturing services for a wide range of clients.
Gus* Modern designs have a refined and subtle twist of warm contemporary materiality and mid-century modern formalism. Their upholstery options have beautiful tones and rich textures that play beautifully off the more classical elements of their designs. They keep their finger on the pulse while marching to the beat of their own drum.
Additionally, Gus* Modern takes a proactive and enlightened approach to sustainable design. They use FSC®-Certified wood, in support of responsible forest management. Their cushions are manufactured to meet California TB117-2013 fire safety standards without the use of flame retardant additives in the upholstery foam. Their new Flipside Sofa Bed uses a revolutionary new synthetic-down fill material which is made from recycled PET plastic water bottles. Their efforts toward sustainable manufacturing are inspiring and should be admired.
The Adelaide Sofa in Velvet Rust has a bold tone and a classic form. Velvet Rust is another unique and interesting fabric in a long line from Gus* Modern.
The Delano V2 Chair in Jet Black Leather has blind-tufted, top-stitched leather upholstery and a polished tubular stainless steel frame. It is a great example of Gus* Modern blending its own design style into classic modern formal archetypes.
The Sparrow Glider in Berkeley Coral has structured clean lines fitting for a modern nursery, living room, or den. Its quiet rocking motion and ergonomic proportions make for a comfortable arm position and neck support. It has a matching Glider Ottoman.
The Tobias Nesting Table, shown here with the Atwood Lounge in Leaside Driftwood, is a minimalist, geometric accent piece well suited for modern spaces. It has a dynamic arrangement of walnut grain panels with a clear coat finish for its top and a bench-made solid powder coated steel base.
