As a born and raised prairie gal, I've grown accustomed to being somewhat forgotten. You know, missing out on the really sweet store launches and trade shows or being skipped over by the weatherman. That sort of thing. If you can relate to - or sympathize with - any of that, you'll understand why my heart skipped more than just a beat when I spotted the new Prairie Tables [retails for $595.00 CDN at ModernKaribou.ca] from Canadian-based furniture design company, Gus* Modern. Known for it's cool, classic, eco-friendly designs, Gus* Modern has captured the oft forgotten beauty of central Canada with this stylish set of nesting tables. Each of the three tables boasts a top carved into the shape of one of the country's prairie provinces (Alberta, Saskatchewan, and my beloved Manitoba)! Constructed of FSC -Certified ash legs and white lacquered tops, the effect is more than memorable, ensuring the prairies will never be forgotten again! Of course, if you're looking for a less literal reference to our fine country, consider Gus* Modern's new Stump Coffee Table [retails for $595.00 CDN at ModernKaribou.ca]. Featuring modern lines, a matte white lacquer finish and of-the-moment faux bois (ie. woodgrain pattern), the look is Canadiana to the core!
