Gusdorf Furniture Ltd, Canada

Gusdorf is a name increasingly associated with quality and reliability in name brand furnishings. Their range of modern home furniture is sleekly designed and ideal for a slightly minimalist look in contemporary home decor.

Sigmund Gusdorf hailed from Germany and migrated to the United States in 1946 whereupon he established Gusdorf Ltd in St. Louis, Missouri. From 1976 Gusdorf Canada Ltd was formed to produce Gusdorf furniture for the Canadian market. In 1993 the Canada arm of the company, based in Laval, took over sales in America. The Gusdorf factory today boasts some 450 000 square foot floor space and is a state of the art manufacturing operation.

Following trends in the furniture industry closely the Gusdorf company opened a Chinese factory in 2002 enabling it to continue to offer price competitiveness in the field of ready to assemble furniture, in particular storage and shelving units, home entertainment and audio/tv, and office equipment.

Gusdorf's famous L shaped design is one highlight among the many types of models. L shaped models can be assembled from either the left or right side, and have full size pull-out keyboard trays in addition to swinging out telephone pads, document holders, pen/pencil cups, and built in accessory grooves.
