About the Designer
David Podsiadlo David Podsiadlo  

David studied Industrial Design before contributing to a number of architectural and interior design firms in Toronto. In 1999 he co-founded Stylegarage in the city's West Queen West neighborhood, which served as a retail outlet for his furniture designs, emphasizing raw materials, clean lines, and basic forms. After quickly gaining local notoriety for his contemporary, unfussy approach to furniture, David and his partners launched Gus* in 2001, taking his designs to a North American market and earning the "Best New Collection" distinction at the 2001 International Gift Fair in Manhattan. Collecting accolades ever since, David continues to serve as partner and Lead Designer at Gus*

Cool comfort

 from Weston, CT– Verified Buyer

My house is modern with lots of big, glass windows and hardwood floors throughout. These are perfect and extremely comfortable. I purchased them for the Span table which hasn't come yet but I think it will be a great look all around.

Worst chairs ever!

 from Barrie, ON

Bought a set of four chairs and they started to fall apart after 3 months! Literally screws falling out of the seat backs onto the floor. After 1.5 yrs of NO WARRANTY we are shopping for replacements! $1100 gone! Ikea is a better product. DO NOT BUY THESE CHAIRS!

Not the color I expected

 from Florida

The chairs are lightweight and comfortable but the cushions are far from the color expected. I could have gone with either white or black and chose white after much deliberation. What was received was very clearly cream. Doesn't look awful and after the huge hassels with delivery I decided to keep them but be warned... .if you need white you may not get it.

Great Chair bur not really white.

 from DE

We purchased 6 of the WalnutWhilte chairs.The chairs are great quality, sturdy and comfortable but the picture and description say they are white, they are actually a cream or ecru color. After 4 weeks of shopping for bright white chairs then waiting 8 weeks for these to be delivered we decided to just keep them.

Thompson Chair

 from San Diego, CA– Verified Buyer

We ordered 6 of these to use as dining chairs in the walnut wood finish and ivory leather. They are very small scale but they worked perfect for our modern design with a retro twist. Very comfortable also!
