MOD LIVIN’ AND GUS* MODERN ANNOUNCE JANUARY “KEEP ON GIVING!” PROMOTION TO SUPPORT LOCAL FOOD BANKS
Mod livin’ Modern Furniture and Gus* Design Group Inc., the Toronto-based home furnishings manufacturer, today announced the launch of its fifth annual “Keep On Giving!” event, a promotion which offers consumers a discount on modern furniture when they donate to local food banks.
Throughout the month of January, customers that bring 3 non-perishable food items into Mod Livin’ will receive 15% off the MSRP on Gus* Modern Essentials upholstery, dining, storage, lighting, and accessories. Collected food will be distributed by Mod Livin’ to local Denver food banks.
“The Keep On Giving Event is designed to encourage all of us to think about those in need in our communities – not just during the holiday season, but throughout the year. Inevitably, donations are collected from customers, friends and nearby businesses that have zero to do with a furniture purchase. This event isn’t just an opportunity to score the couch you’ve been staring at all year, it brings our wonderful community together,” said Amanda Lezan, Mod Livin’ store manager.
The Gus* Modern furniture collection is characterized by clean-lined upholstery and functional dining, lighting, and accents, all inspired by mid-century classics. The promotion will apply to all pieces in the Essentials line, which consists of in-stock furniture in a variety of finish options. All of the upholstery frames in the Gus* Modern line, including the great condo-sized LOFT Series, are produced with FSC-certified wood, in support of responsible forest management.

Yes, friends, despite the obvious hindrance of not actually having a yard, we’re having a yard sale. This is actually quite exciting for us.
Little known fact: we’re a bunch of hoarders.
Sure, we’re well enough versed at keeping up appearances and shoving everything into closets or under beds when we entertain, but the truth is we tend to bite off more than we can chew when out buying.
In an attempt to make some room in our lives, we’re hosting a two-day sale. Everything in the showroom will be 20% - 70% off (both new and vintage), which is news enough. We’ve decided to take it to the next level, however. Our vintage dealers are cleaning out their respective storage facilities and bringing in special items that have never seen the showroom before. These items will only be available during the two-day sale and will be priced by people who really don’t want to haul them back to aforementioned storage facilities. The pieces will be everything from portions of their personal collections which are ready to be released back into the wild, to items that need a little love or a DIY touch.
To sweeten the deal, we’re opening at 8AM both days to keep you early birds singing and serving lemonade all weekend long.
Come one, come all, to the 2012 Mod Livin’ Yard Sale.
We had a fabulous time at our Modern Design Series exhibit last night. Tom Casey did a wonderful job informing us on the nuances of Russel Wright’s furniture and ceramics. Congrats to Tracey and Monty for winning the copies of Easier Living.
