As you may have noticed :), we added a whole bunch of great furniture when we moved to our new location! One of those lines is Gus Modern, a cool + comfortable line based in Toronto, Canada. Three friends founded the company in 2002, and they were so committed to producing well made furniture they moved to China for TWO WHOLE YEARS to set up their own factory and ensure good working conditions and quality furniture production.
A few things we love about Gus:
- They’ve got a seat for everyone…meaning their sofas vary from more firm to really cushy. We err on the side of cushy — because who doesn’t want to be comfortable?!? — but are happy to walk you through their firmer models too.
- All furniture is made with all FSC certified wood, ensuring both solid wood construction and responsible use of forested wood.
- Many cushions are made with PET fill — an eco-friendly down-alternative made from 100% recycled PET plastic bottles. Bonus is that PET cushions are heavy and resistant to sagging!
- Fabrics are inherently stain resistant and are so durable you’ll find Gus Modern in many of the largest (+ coolest designed) companies in the US, like Google and Instagram.
- Our favorite Queer Eye designer Bobby Berk is a big fan, so much so that he has a Logan sectional (the one in our front window!) in his own home.
Wondering how it works? We sell all the furniture in shop right off the floor. We’ve partnered with a local delivery service that can often get your new purchase home to you within 24 hours or so!
Each upholstered piece also comes in about 3-5 other fabric options and we have small swatches we can send you home with you and large fabric samples you can check out. We also keep Gus Modern catalogs around for you to see their full collection. If you’re interested in a special order or a model we don’t have in the shop, we can usually have it in 3-5 weeks if in stock.
