About modGSI
modGSI – “millions of designs – get some inspiration”
We’re passionate about bringing quality contemporary furniture to your home

Who We Are
We are an online retailer founded in Vancouver British Columbia in 2004. Our Brick and Mortar retail is located at 12680 Bridgeport Road, Richmond, B.C. Our focus is on providing thousands of stunning contemporary furniture choices accessible throughout Canada and beyond.

The modGSI Concept
You don’t want someone else telling you what you like in your home. What you need are ideas, not instructions. That’s where we come in. The name modGSI is an acronym, and what it stands for is ‘Millions of Designs – Get Some Inspiration.’ The full name embodies our business concept – we want to bring together a whole bunch of products, more of them all the time, in all kinds of combinations, then throw all these designs at you and see what sticks. We don’t know what will inspire you. Maybe you don’t even know what will inspire you. But we’re going to help you find out.
