Gus* Modern is the sister company of Style Garage and I first noticed Gus* has ventured into the United States during my trip to NYC a couple of years ago. Today, Gus* Modern is a well-known furniture maker south of the border and at the High Point Market Spring 2012, Gus* launched an amazing new collection ranging from sofas, sectionals, single chairs, to side tables and credenzas. Here are a few snapshots of Gus* Modern at the High Point Market.
The Gus* visual team just nailed it at High Point. Heart their lightly stained pine walls and you know what, old racquets as edgy wall art may just be the next big thing in home decor! Thanks to the Gus* team, today I'm giving you all a sneak peek of the exciting new collection.
As you can see, the Adelaide sectional works beautifully in this loft filled with full-height windows and painted hardwood floor.
The Harbord series features flanged arms, tapered wood legs with stringers, and man don't I just love those extra thick tufted seat cushions. Chris loves to lounge on a sofa and the Harbord series may just work better than marriage counselling.
For maximum versatility and make room layout redesign a breeze, the chaise of this bi-sectional can actually be configured on the left, the right, or even as standalone seating. Don't believe me? See for yourself!
Tufting is a huge trend this year and you see them everywhere on upholstered pieces. With the unique diamond-quilted details on both the seat & back, plus a stainless steel base, the Thatcher Sofa is fun, modern with a Hollywood glam twist. It certainly stands out from the other pieces on the market and will surely be a conversation piece in your home.
You all know I picked up the Stump collection at Gus* Warehouse sale. I love the faux wood pattern mimics the organic lines of a sawn tree trunk, and how the pattern adds a touch of nature in interior decor. So I am super excited to see the Root coffee table and end table. These two pieces are designed as stand alone pieces, but they are totally compatible to nest together for a dynamic, layered look.
Here is the end table on its own. Love this bear on top of the wood pattern top and don't these tapered wood legs look like "pillars of the Earth"?
I have been looking everywhere for the perfect side board for a dining room project: a piece at the right height to serve drinks and hors d'oeuvre with plenty of storage for dinnerware. Completely customizable (size and height), this Wilson cabinet has a walnut frame and white lacquered doors & drawers for an urban contemporary look with a hint of Art Deco. This may just be the answer to my prayer.
Can there be too much of a good thing? I say not! Here is the Wilson end table and I see this working perfectly in a chic bedroom.
I am also super excited for my cousin when she told me she is having a baby! My cousin and I grew up together (we used to live 5 mins walk from each other in Hong Kong), and even with my crazy busy schedule, I am all for designing her a nursery for many of those sleepless nights to come. Not that I know anything about glider but every mom I've met swore by them like it is the best gift for mankind. In that case, I think my cousin will need one and this Kipling glider and ottoman is just anything but your typical good old glider. Here is how the Gus* team describes this stylish creation:
"Kipling Glider & Ottoman: The Kipling has a geometric shape that was inspired by children’s wood blocks. It features French seams, a quiet rocking motion, and ergonomic proportions for comfortable neck support and arm position. Made with FSC-Certified wood. Matching ottoman also glides, and is sold separately."
Last but not least, my rooms wouldn't be completed without any pillows. Here are the hand-screened graphic pillows inspired by racquet sport feature non-toxic inks on soft white cotton fabric.
A big thank you to Gus* Modern for providing me the beautiful images and details of their latest products. I can totally see certain pieces from this strong collection will be part of my design projects. Check out your local Gus* retailers over the next couple of weeks, and see how some of these ingeniously designed and well-made pieces will work in your home.
