So this is a very cool event. First, Gus*Modern is offering 15% off their merchandise at Design Public. Second, for each item sold, they are going to plant a tree. It’s a win-win. If you’ve had your eye on their Upcycle Ottomans, made from fair trade coffee bags, now’s the time to scoop them up. Oh dear. Planting trees, upcycling, FAIR TRADE? It’s almost too much. It’s something so well-intentioned it seems like it’s taken straight from a Portlandia sketch.

Here are a few more favorite Gus* selections for you to peruse while you online shop this weekend.


The Gus*Modern Halifax Chair

The Gus*Modern Conrad Desk

Don’t take too long to decide though. This feel-good sale ends on January 31, 2016.

Flickr Faves on Fridays: Repurposed Pallet Coffee Table

I love the looks of this coffee table that?? Saídos da Concha posted to our Fresh New Spaces Group on Flickr:

It’s an upcycled pallet with some simple wheels attached and some very nice styling. The geraniums are the perfect touch. For more lovely photographs and images from her handmade life, check out Concha’s blog. She even has very simple instructions for how to make this table.
