Modern Living Space was conceived in 2012 by its founder, David Wong, a Business Management graduate from the University of Toronto. After working for many different companies in a variety of different industries for many years, David decided to take over the family business and repackaged it; starting with a new name and look. David, tired of seeing the same cookie cutter furniture everywhere, wanted to offer exclusive and unique contemporary home furnishings to the public. After many months of searching for China for unique furniture designs, David couldn't find anything he really liked so he decided to partner up with one of his relatives and open a factory in Foshan. At the moment all the sofas, beds, and marble tables are manufactured in that factory. Everything else is outsourced to third companies in the local area.
