Founder & Principal Designer

IIDA Associate

M.Sc, Eng, Environ. INA-PG

Celine Riard founded CHIC Redesign in 2002. Born and raised in Normandy, France in a picturesque coastal village, she considers her designs like comfort-food French cuisine: the use of simple flavorsome ingredients with minimal processing, bursting with character. 

With a M.Sc. in environmental engineering from one of the most prestigious colleges in France, she completed in 2002 her interior designer training from the International Academy of Design and Technology (IADT) in Montréal. She is a natural born problem solver and her creations are a balanced mix of energy and comfort, the results of years of research and observation on the effects of a positive environment on people's general well-being.

Her diverse clientele shows that Celine and her team are excellent at translating ideas no matter what their cultural heritage may be.
