Gus Modern - New for 2014


The Bolton Multi-Sectional is the most versatile piece of furniture you’ll ever own. With arms that can be easily removed and reattached, and a chaise that can be positioned on either the left or right side, this sectional has 19 possible configurations – enough to suit any room layout you can imagine. It can even be used as two separate components – chaise and apartment-size sofa. The seat and back are integrated into the frame for a streamlined, modern look, and the upholstery has French seams to subtly soften the edges. The base is bench-made, brushed stainless steel. Includes concealed hardware to securely join the sofa and chaise components when the design is configured as a sectional.



Originally created in 1950 by Russell Spanner, the Spanner Lounge Chair with Arms has become a classic of Canadian Mid-Century Modern furniture design. Out of production for more than 50 years, Gus* worked in collaboration with the Spanner family to revive this iconic chair, carefully matching the construction, materials, and design details to stay true to the original in every way. The seat is woven strapping, and the frame is solid birch with exposed bolts and finger-joint details. Like the original, the Lounge Chair with Arms is built in Toronto and available in a variety of finishes. To commemorate the return of this design classic, the first 100 chairs produced will be part of a numbered, limited edition series.
       
The Switch Sofa has a split personality. The quilted seat and back cushions have a different stitched pattern on each side, which allows you to subtly change the look on a whim. The feet are turned, solid wood, and the frame is built with FSC-Certified hardwood, in support of responsible forest management.


The Bloor Sofa combines a classic two-over-two design with refined details like a truss-style stainless steel base and elevated footprint. The base features exposed external supports on the back, which make the Bloor a striking design from every angle. Feather blend cushions and slender arms maximize comfort and lounge space. Made with 100% FSC-Certified wood, in support of responsible forest management.



The Sudbury Table is a study in contrasts. Organic forms joined together by industrial fittings. Warm wood grain stands out against sleek steel. Scaled for smaller spaces, this table’s rounded corners create a relaxed vibe that’s perfect for a modern dining area. It features exposed ply legs and beveled tabletop with fittings made from durable, powder-coated steel. Available in walnut with black brackets, or natural oak with white.
