Gus Modern sets HPM introductions PDF Print E-mail
Written by HGO Staff   

TORONTO (10 April 2012) - Modern furniture designer and manufacturer Gus* Modern will offer an array of brightly-colored fabric options on select new in-stock sofas, sectionals, chairs and accents as part of its 2012 home furnishings collection at the upcoming spring edition of the High Point Market.

Along with new upholstery offerings, Gus* will debut a line of modern storage units and a number of Canadiana-inspired accent pieces.

"Consumers are feeling more and more confident about making bold statements with their furniture," Gus* Modern partner Amanda Schuler said in a statement. "We're excited to offer vibrant new fabric choices on some of our most popular in-stock upholstery designs, and we'll continue offering an assortment of neutral options for those that prefer to add color with accents and accessories."

Notable among the designs now offered in a bright color option is the Atwood sofa, one of the company's most popular frames. The Atwood's button-tufted upholstery, piping, and tapered walnut legs combined with the bright blue fabric option called Muskoka Surf  creates a look reminiscent of classic modern designs from the 1950s and 60s.

Bright blue choices will also be available on the new Kipling glider and ottoman, the Jasper cube ottoman, and the Truss chair.

New from Gus* Modern for the upcoming High Point Market, the Kipling glider and ottoman features a geometric shape that was inspired by children's wood blocks and is covered in the Canadian manufacturer's newest bright blue fabric option called Muskoka Surf.

Gus* Modern's other introductions include:

The Kipling glider and ottoman features a geometric shape that was inspired by children's wood blocks. With a frame made with FSC certified wood, the glider features French seams, a quiet rocking motion and ergonomic proportions for comfortable neck support and arm position. It's suggested retail is US$999. The matching ottoman also glides and is sold separately.

The Adelaide bi-sectional sofa is a classic, symmetrical design that harkens back to mid-century archetypes. Structured side cushions lend a vintage look, while providing added comfort. The solid, tapered-wood legs can be easily removed and reattached, allowing this sectional to fit through tight spaces. Its suggested retail is US$3,295. The group's companion sofa has a suggested retail of US$1,999.

The Thatcher sofa features a unique, diamond-quilted detail on the integrated seat and back, which gives it a clean, structured look. Design details include flared arms, French seams and a stainless steel base. Suggested retail is US$1,999.

The Wilson cabinet is a versatile storage unit featuring a walnut cabinet, complemented by white lacquered doors and drawers. It also sports integrated handles and self-closing hardware. The doors conceal adjustable shelves. The suggested retail is US$1,499.

The functional Wilson end table has a suggested retail of US$399 and contrasts warm walnut against a white lacquer drawer. Its proportions work well in either a living room or bedroom setting and the drawer features a self-closing mechanism.

The companion Wilson media stand is designed for the modern entertainment room, and follows the collection's motif of mixing warm, walnut exteriors with white lacquer doors. It features two central cavities for component storage, a back panel opening for cable management and self-closing doors with integrated handles at a suggested retail of US$1,449.

The Root coffee table has a faux-bois pattern grooved into the white lacquer top, mimicking the organic lines of sawn timber at a suggested retail of US$399. The surface sits on four tapered wood legs, hand-turned from solid, FSC certified ash.  It can be nested with the companion end table, which is sold separately at a suggested retail of US$325.

Inspired by the rugged Canadian landscape, the Glacier is a sculptural accent table crafted from brushed stainless steel, creating a solid form that subtly reflects its surroundings.

The Harbord Loft bi-sectional is a compact sectional with mid-century inspired details like blind-tufted upholstery, flanged arms, and tapered wood legs with stringers.  The chaise can be configured on the left, the right, or as standalone seating. The collection includes a sofa.

The High Park is a modern club chair with a cantilevered stainless steel base supporting a comfortable seat with clean, classic lines. The suggested retail is US$999.

Racquet Sports is a set of graphic accent pillows inspired by leisure racquet sports, played  in backyards and rec rooms. Each is hand-screened with non-toxic inks onto cotton cases.  The inserts use down and feather fill.

Gus* Modern's High Point showroom is located is space d5087 of the International Home Furnishings Center (IHFC).

The High Point Furniture will run from April 21 to 26.

The Gus* Modern furniture collection is designed in Canada, and is sold at over 150 furniture retailers across North America, including 12 Gus* Studio boutiques.
