With Gus* Modern, the focus is on making great design practical. Designer David Podsiadlo takes his inspiration from everyday objects and industrial forms. With a nod to mid-century Modernist designs, the Gus* Design Group has created furniture, accent pieces, and accessories that are elegantly functional.
Based in Toronto, Gus* Modern introduced their first sofas and lighting in 2000. The line was well received and was soon being sold to prominent design retailers across the United States and Canada. With key pieces like the Jane Sofa and the Delano Chair, sofas, sectionals, and chairs are the heart of the Gus* collection.
The line was soon expanded to include coffee tables, accent tables, rugs, ottomans, and home accessories. With the same simple design aesthetic, and taking a special interest in innovative use of materials like acrylic and stainless steel, these accent pieces complete the Gus* Modern line. Combining quality materials and minimalist design, David Podsiadlo has designed an award-winning line to outfit a contemporary living space in style.
