Gus Modern Furniture Sale

For immediate release January 12, 2009


Gus* Design Group Inc. (, a seven year old Toronto-based home
furnishings manufacturer, today announced the launch of its “Keep On Giving!” promotion,
which will offer North American consumers a discount on modern furniture when they donate to
local food banks.

From January 15 to February 15, consumers that bring 3 non-perishable food items into a
participating Gus* retailer will receive 15% off the regular price on Gus* Modern Essentials
upholstery, dining, storage, lighting, and accessories. Collected food will be distributed by
Bobby Berk Home and donated to Food Bank For New York City.
The Gus* Modern furniture collection is characterized by clean-lined upholstery and functional
dining, lighting, and accent pieces, all inspired by mid-century classics. The promotion will
apply to all pieces in the Essentials line, (which consists of in-stock furniture in a variety of finish
options) including the new Jane Bi-Sectional and the faux-bois Timber Table,

“We wanted to do something more meaningful than a typical post-holiday sale”, said Gus* co-
founder Amanda Schuler. “This promotion gives consumers an opportunity to get a price break
on that beautiful new sofa, and help their community at the same time.”

Gus Modern Furniture is available in New York City at Bobby Berk Home 59 Crosby Street New
York, NY 10012 646-233-3438
