Gus* designs, manufactures, and distributes all of its furniture. They make sure each piece is created from expert workmanship, quality materials insuring that each piece is fantastic inside and out.

Gus* is a certified by the Forestry Steward Council (FSC)©. They manufacture many of their products with 100% FSC© Certified hardwood. They do this in support of responsibly managed forests and forestry. The FSC© makes a commitment of verified 'cradle to the consumer' responsibly sourced wood products.
One of the innovations that Gus* has implemented is a revolutionary new upholstery fill material in select sofa designs. PET fill is a clean, ultra-soft, hypoallergenic, vegan, long-strand fiber material that offers the comfort and feel of traditional waterfowl down. This is achieved through a process that benefits the environment by diverting plastic bottles away from landfills. The bottles are purified and refined in several stages to create a synthetic-down upholstery fill that gives long-lasting comfort while maintaining cushion loft and shape.

Frequently Asked Questions
All Gus* upholstery is warranted against defects in material and workmanship. The warranty applies to standard household use and is warranted under normal care and maintenance from the date of purchase.
Frames & Springs: Limited 10 year Warranty
The integrity of the sofa frame will remain intact over time providing it is used appropriately. Sitting on the back or arms, jumping on the sofa, or rough handling/play on the sofa is not recommended. Do not drag your sofa over rough surfaces. If a sofa needs to be moved, it must be lifted; as pushing or dragging a sofa, even on smooth surfaces, may cause the seams unnecessary stress.
Cushions & Foam: Limited 1 year Warranty
During the first few months, the foam padding of your sofa will become softer. This process is normal, and it should be expected that there will be a slight softening effect as the polyurethane adjusts to regular use. This is not to be confused with a loss of foam resiliency.
Fabric Upholstery: Limited 1 year Warranty
For the care and maintenance of Gus* fabrics and leather please refer to the details outlined in the Care and Maintenance guide. This warranty does not cover damage due to improper cleaning and care of upholstery coverings or by the use or misuse of any recommended cleaning methods. As sun is a natural bleaching agent it is strongly advised that you keep your Gus* upholstery away from direct sunlight as it will weaken and discolor the covering over time. Heat will also damage the coverings and it is important to position the sofa at least 2 feet away from any sources of heat such as radiators and heaters. (Note: fabrics are inherently stain resistant due to content and weave. ScotchGard is not recommended.)
Leather Upholstery: Limited 5 year Warranty

Bed Frames & Mechanisms: Limited 1 year Warranty
