Gus* Modern Carmichael Loft Sofa
Toronto-based furniture company Gus* Modern is the brainchild of industrial designer David Podsiadlo and has been garnering international attention.
Inspired by simple forms and honest materials, Gus* Modern uses them as the springboard for everything they create. From the simple two-by-four and construction I-beam, to the useful miter box, they delight in the simplicity of everyday objects. The result is furniture, accent pieces, and accessories that mix the elegant with the industrial. Mirroring the great modernists of yesterday, they strive to combine great design and practical purpose.
Upon unpacking your new Gus* sofa, we recommend you take the time to ‘model’ it with your hands in order to ensure it returns to its initial appearance which will have altered slightly during transportation. A light fluffing and smoothing out of the upholstery and cushions will restore the sofa to its intended aesthetic quality.
All of the fabrics offered in the Gus* Collection have high abrasion resistance.
For regular maintenance and to maintain the nap of the fabric, we recommend vacuuming your sofa regularly. Dab spills immediately with an absorbent cloth and remove the stain using cool distilled water and/or a mild soap. DO NOT over-saturate a stain with cleanser. Always test in an inconspicuous area first before using any soap product.
For thorough cleaning, we recommend professional dry cleaning or a professional in-home upholstery cleaning service.
Protect your furniture from direct sunlight, as this may cause the fabric to fade unevenly
** Most fabrics in the Gus* Collection are inherently stain resistant and therefore do not require a protective coating (i.e. Scotchguarding). In some instances, applying such a coating can affect the appearance and/or “nap” of the fabric.
Applying such a coating will void the fabric warranty. Should you decide to have a protective coating applied, there are third party companies that offer this service who then offer their own warranty on the fabric.
