Moving houses? Buying your own place? Need to shop for furniture? But how can you do it with flair?
Purchasing furniture is no easy task. One has to consider design, functionality, durability, and price, among others. Will the new sofa fit the allocated space for your 55sqm condominium unit? Does the old- fashioned chair look good against your wall? Does the dining table look too complicated that it veers away from its main purpose?
These are just a few of the questions I have in mind because I’m moving houses. I’m sure you are asking the same thing.
I recently hosted the launch of a new furniture store here in manila – GUS* and I was well pleased with the modern design of the furnitures and the quality of the details and the main pieces. Also check out Voucher Slug to get voucher codes for Laura Ashley furniture.
Exuberating a timeless classic design that is simple, elegant, and earth friendly, Gus* Modern makes you ask the right questions – “Does the design and function of this furniture complement well with my lifestyle?” and “Is the quality good and will it last?”
I like this specific piece. It’s the Prairie Table with three pieces, each representing an area in Canada.
Plus, what I love is that they are environment friendly!
Gus* believes that it is the object’s simplicity which lends it the elegance that can mix with the industrial. Inspiration comes from simple forms and honest materials. Combining great design with practical purpose – a true modern furniture, fit for the sensible-living urbanite.
This is one of my favorites in the set – the GT Rocker named after the speed race GT. And you know how much I love racing!
Today, the company’s wide array of sofas, sectionals, chairs and tables, has set high standards of clean lines, quality and modernist feel.
Gus* Modern Releases 2012 Spring Collection
Through the years, Gus* has created furniture that incorporates good design into daily function, each piece crafted with its user in mind.
Introducing the limited edition Cohen Chair, a small-scaled vintage club chair in gorgeous distressed brown leather, featuring top-stitched, full-grain leather upholstery with a unique stainless steel base. This chair is only available at Gus* Studios, like Gus* Philippines, and for a limited time only.
Included in the 2012 Spring Collection is the Carmichael Loft Sofa, part of the Loft Series designed for the condo-dwelling urbanite. The collection also features the Prairie Nest Table and Stump Storage Box.
Gus* In The Philippines
Gus* Philippines opened its doors last December 2010, located at the Ground Floor of the Residences at Greenbelt (TRAG), Makati. It is the first international dealer outside US and Canada.
The Gus* brand is brought to the Philippines by Living Space Home Furnishings, a young and innovative company that aims to bring in high quality modern design furniture, that can be enjoyed by the public.
“We wanted to bring in a brand that has the same youthful energy and awareness on social responsibility as Living Space and that is Gus*. One of the aspects of CSR is its advocacy on eco-friendly living. In our own little way, we create awareness on being environmental friendly through our furniture pieces. Through FSC, we only use woods that are sourced from well-managed forest.” says Anne Young, Living Space.
Following the success of the first branch is Design Pod, situated along Connecticut St. in Greenhills, San Juan. It opened last February 2012 and carries the full Gus* Modern product line with other international brands like Blu Dot and Oliver Hemming time pieces.
