by Gus Modern
At A Glance:
With a classic two-over-two design, the Bloor Sofa has a familiar silhouette ... until you look at it from the side or back. From those angles, its exposed external steel frame makes a striking impression - and you just might end up placing this sofa away from a wall to take advantage of its modern good looks. The Bloor Sofa features feather blend cushions for comfort, and slender arms to maximize space.
What's To Like:
- The stainless steel base and external support give the sofa a mid-century modern vibe, which we like. However, the real win for us is the tilted-back angle of the sofa. It just looks like a great place to rest.
- Feather blend cushions make for a more comfortable sit than simple foam, as anyone who has sat on them will attest. How can you not like that?
- Bloor is traditionally modern without being predictable. That's an achievement in itself.
What's Not to Like:
- Price is, as always, a consideration. It's expensive, but if you love the look you'll find that it's less of a problem.
- Speaking of the look ... we think that it looks mature, modern, and fresh - all at the same time. You may find that it's too boring or plain. For button-tufting, look at the Jane Sofa as an example.
The Bottom Line:
The Bloor Sofa by Gus Modern is a sofa that has one foot in the mid-century era and one foot in the here and now. It won't distract from your other decor, and it'll leave space for your other furnishings.
