Gus* Modern, founded over 20 years ago by like-minded friends in Toronto, has become synonymous with modern furniture that seamlessly blends contemporary aesthetics with mid-century influences. What truly sets Gus* Modern apart is its unwavering commitment to sustainability. The brand prioritizes the use of eco-friendly materials throughout its manufacturing process, ensuring their furniture leaves a minimal environmental footprint.
The Gus* Modern collection incorporates four cutting-edge sustainable technologies. First, their PET cushion fill is made from synthetic material derived from recycled plastic bottles, actively contributing to waste reduction and conservation efforts. Second, the brand offers Vegan AppleSkin™ Leather, a sustainable alternative crafted from recycled fruit fiber that mirrors the timeless appeal of natural leather. Third, the use of FSC®-Certified wood demonstrates Gus* Modern's dedication to responsible forest management, supporting the preservation of our planet's vital ecosystems. Lastly, the brand utilizes a 0% VOC certified wood finish, an all-natural and environmentally friendly product that prioritizes the health and well-being of both consumers and the environment.
The addition of Jamie Durie to the Gus* Modern team as a sustainable design partner elevates this collaboration to new heights. With numerous international awards under his belt and a renowned author on sustainable design, Jamie Durie brings his wealth of expertise and passion to create furniture collections that epitomize style, functionality, and environmental consciousness.
