Gus Modern Sofas Are On Sale!


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

Is one of your design goals for 2013 to replace that sofa? Whether your cat has used your current sofa as a large scratching pad or you’re just plumb tired of its oversized rolled arms, January 2013 is a great time to save some bucks on a sofa from Gus Modern. These sofas will be on sale through January 31, 2013. Here’s a look at a few of the beautiful styles available. Please note that most of the styles are available as sofa and sectional sofas.

The Gus Modern Atwood Sofa. This sofa takes a dash of Chesterfield, a pinch of mid-century modern, a dollop of fresh creativity and results in an appealing cushy piece that is hemmed in by a large rectangular frame. It is also available in a chair and a sectional.

The Gus Modern Adelaide Sofa. The Adelaide could easily slip into a Mad Men set. I can just see Don Draper binge drinking at work, then curling up for the night in his office, on this sofa.

The Gus Modern Carmichael Sofa. This high-backed sofa is 72″ long and sits atop elegant ash legs.

The Gus Modern Thatcher Sofa. This sofa throws a diamond pattern into a room via a subtle harlequin tufting pattern. It sits atop a sleek stainless steel frame.

The Gus Modern Jane Loft Bi-Sectional Sofa. This sofa’s chaise can be swung to the left side or the right. It’s neatly tailored tufts add depth and comfort while its streamlined frame and lines keeps things contemporary. This version is for those of us with smaller living rooms; a larger Jane Sectional is available as well.

The Gus Modern Carter Sectional combines tufted upholstery with un-tufted pillows that you can steal and stack for extra lazy movie viewing.

The Gus Modern Richmond Bi-Sectional Sofa. Not so into tufting? Then the the Richmond is for you.  It’s a great way to go sectional without having the sectional eat up your room. The great thing about this shape is that is can work with rooms from traditional shabby chic to contemporary.

Around the Web This Week

Leave a comment!

What a week! Personally I ruined my fall back extra hour of sleep by staying up late for election results and speeches and never caught back up; it’s like a week-long political hangover and I’m just glad there aren’t 6 billion dollars worth of annoying ads assaulting us anymore. It’s been fun to think about other things; here are a few fun virtual design stops I’ve made this week.

First, let’s get serious. Victims of Hurricane Sandy need help. A lot of helpful tips have been posted all over the web this week; I’m finding first-hand accounts from friends on Facebook have some of the most useful information. Bottom line, these people don’t need your worn-out clothing right now, what they do need includes warm outerwear (coats, scarves, mittens, hats, wool socks, etc.), cash, hand sanitizer, batteries, wipes, cans of soup and can openers, diapers, warm blankets, power cords and more. An easy way to help is to text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Another charity that is doing great work and makes it easy to donate online is Family-to-Family.

If you need to lighten your mood, I highly recommend a viewing of Moonrise Kingdom from the comfort of your living room. If you’ve already checked out Wes Anderson’s latest visual feast but can’t get enough, check out the behind the scenes tours, particularly Bill Murray’s guided set tour.

I loved this post from Tablet about great spots for what they call “the annual man trip” but I have decided to call mancations, dudescursions and/or bro-jurns. While I’m not a man and I don’t really care to go fishing or smoke cigars, I would happily cozy up in any of these awesome spots around the world.

I finally had time to sit down and savor the latest issue of Anthology magazine. The theme is Rhythm and Hues and it’s a great look at the homes of music-industry types. I love that during a time when so many home glossies were going out of business, this talented group had the guts create a fresh and original print magazine. I treat each one like I would a book, and they will never be making their way to my recycling bin.

By the way, if you got too caught up in the fray and forgot to shop our Blu Dot sale, don’t fret. It’s been extended through November 19th. Click here to start browsing and saving.

Robin Crib On Sale


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

The Robin Crib by Oeuf is one of those white whales of the furniture world – hunting down a discount is about as difficult as hunting Moby Dick. However, there is a rare opportunity happening right now; this fabulously modern, sustainable crib is on sale for $499 in the birch/white and espresso/white options. If you’ve been hemming and hawing over which crib to buy, stop it and start clicking “add to cart” right now!

Well, take a few minutes; I understand, this is a big lifetime purchase for you! Here are some compelling reasons to choose this bed:

1. Space in a nursery is very tight; you need all the space-saving help you can get. The Robin Crib is set up so that the Robin Changing Station (sold separately) will fit right on top of it.

2. Your babe will only need a crib for so long, why invest hundreds of dollars in something you may only use for two or three years? Oeuf knows this, so they’ve designed the crib to grow with you. It converts  into your child’s first big-boy or big-girl bed!

This conversion capability is not only sustainable for the environment, but sustainable for your budget!

3. Oops, did I mention safety yet? The Robin Crib meets and exceeds all European, Canadian, Australian and US safety standards. Also, the low height makes it easy to lift child in and out; the mattress height can be adjusted to three positions.

4. Finally, and most superficially, this crib is gorgeous. It has clean and modern lines and it is sleek yet warm. It’s the perfect crib for discerning parents who prefer contemporary style.

Convinced? Hop on over to the sale and pick one up today! The sale will only go on while supplies last!

Kontextur Flash Sale and Giveaway!

Posted by | View all posts by

Take a look around your bathroom. What’s holding up your toothbrush? Lately I’ve found that all the fat-handled toothbrushes I buy don’t fit into those traditional toothbrush holder holes anymore, and mine tends to sit sadly over the sink. A cup tends to get a weird cement-like mixture of water and toothpaste in the bottom, turning it into yuckola.

However, all that can change. The Viktor Toothbrush Holder by Kontextür makes a great gift and will add some shine to your bathroom. We are holding a flash sale for the next four days (that’s December 12-16) for 35% off all Viktor Toothbrush Holders. These come in a set of three fun shapes, and you can choose from 18K gold, real silver

…or black nickel. They also can hold your razors the same way!

To celebrate our fun sale, we’re also giving away two other awesome Kontextür products – one lucky reader will win a Kontextür Rubber Duck (a new twist on a classic!)…

and another will win one of these chic and modern Kontextür Tissue Boxes!

So, you’re asking yourself – what do I have to do to enter this contest?  Well, here is how you can win!
