Candadian company Gus* had one of the most modern booths we saw at High Point. Styled with simple (and inexpensive) string art and leafy green plants, the space had a warm and laid-back look. New this year: the Atwood sectional and chair — named after Canadian writer Margaret Atwood — and the Sparrow rocking glider and ottoman.The Atwood has a blind-tufted seat with piping, and the look is a little more tailored than previous Gus* lines. We also loved the Stanley console, a shallow entryway table with a recessed groove to catch your cell phone, and the Charmichael sofa, a high-back design that would fit in well with more traditional decor.
