Gus Modern: Smart Style & Simple Materials

The Best of High Point Market Spring 2010

A showroom setting — usually jam-packed and overflowing with product — is rarely inspiring. Not the case for Toronto-based Gus Modern. Their showroom was exquisitely arranged to show off their latest product and smartly styled with simple (and low-cost) displays of artwork and collections.

One of my favorite displays in the Gus Modern booth was the collection of bicycle handlbars — all painted white and mounted artistically on a wall. It's a great example of how repitition of a single simple object can transcend into art.

GUS MUST-SEES
• NEW Stanley Collection of tables — dining, accent and coffee — and benches
