Gus* Modern, the Canadian modern furniture design and manufacturing company, has entered the home-office category with a collection of desks designed to integrate into existing living spaces. The collection includes three compact desks that will incorporate storage and provide a convenient workspace for family members to do homework, use their computers and tablets, or take care of finances.
“We’ve designed our new desks to be compact enough to fit into urban homes and condos and work seamlessly with existing layouts,” says David Podsiadlo, lead designer and founding partner at Gus*. “The modern home office isn’t tucked away somewhere. It’s an attractive and functional space right out in the open that everyone in the family can use. It has just enough surface area for a computer and a few documents, and the right amount of storage to keep things organized. ”
Furniture buyers, interior designers, and industry media will get their first chance to see the new designs during the Fall 2013 High Point Furniture Market, at the Gus* showroom on the fifth floor of the IHFC Building (H512).
The Fall 2013 High Point introductions from Gus* Modern will include the following home office designs.
The Conrad desk is a compact home office desk with a strong mid-century-Modern pedigree. All surfaces are finished in walnut, to contrast the slender, tubular stainless steel legs and drawer pulls. The main drawer is designed to hold hanging file folders, and the two smaller drawers are perfect for organizing stationary and supplies. This desk evokes the style of 1950s Modernism, but with a scale and functionality suited perfectly for today.
The Junction desk is a minimalist design that’s well suited for home office or open-concept living. The open storage compartment can be used to store books and magazines, or as a handy spot to charge electronic devices. The writing surface has an open trough at the back to hold stationary or to attractively store and display books or artwork. Concealed, brushed metal fittings enable seamless cord management. The single push-to-open drawer also features smooth, self-closing hardware.
The Finch desk is a compact writing desk with suspended drawers and a truss-style base. The drawers have a white-lacquer finish and smooth, self-closing hardware. Finch suits a home office, bedroom, or the corner of a living room or kitchen. The solid wood base and edging are FSC-Certified ash, harvested from certified sustainable sources.
Gus* will debut all new home office designs along with new upholstery, dining, and accents at the High Point Furniture Market in North Carolina from Oct. 19-24. The Gus* Modern furniture collection is designed in Canada, and is sold at over 150 furniture retailers across North America, including 12 Gus* Studio boutiques.
