Gus Modern


Gus* Modern was founded in 2000 as a designer and maker of modern upholstered seating and accessories. Inspired by the mid-century modern design aesthetic, their goal from the very beginning has been to create modern furniture that combines great design with practicality.

At Gus* Modern we have the same philosophy as classic mid-century modern designers; to show an appreciation for minimalist forms, quality construction and honest, sustainable materials. The difference can be found in the details. With Gus* Modern furniture, there are slight angles where one would expect straight lines, upholstery in earthy brown and grey color palettes punctuated by bursts of Citrine and Surf. Combine that with our precise tailoring and solid, renewable wood frames, and you have modern furniture pieces ideal for today’s sophisticated, yet comfortable, contemporary designs.

Furniture from the Gus Design Group can be found everywhere. In addition to appearances in endless magazine layouts, modern design websites and advertisements, Gus* Modern furniture has been featured in big box movies and numerous TV shows.
