In 1982, despite a difficult economic climate and after obtaining a grant, two associates in a custom furniture design boutique gave Maryse Crôteau a tremendous opportunity. The quality of her concepts quickly convinced them to market collections created by her, and from then on, she became involved in all special layout projects.
Strengthened by the experience she had acquired and confident in the loyalty of her customers, Maryse decided to create her own company in 1989. Création Maryse Crôteau Inc. was born and opened its doors in a small office located on the 3rd floor of a building on Côte-des-Neiges Avenue in Montreal.
The clientele was growing, and requests started pouring in. Those opportunities knocked as a recession was looming. The company's activities were reorganized between 1992 and 1997 since the founder grew her business in Bolivia where she taught design and was influenced by her architect colleagues.
Back in Quebec, enriched by her new knowledge and skills, Maryse Crôteau continued her work and kept evolving returning to the business as if reconnecting with an old friend. New talents joined the company, which allowed it to improve and expand.
Having outgrown its premises, the company acquired a spacious 1500 square foot loft in Boisbriand in 2008.
Maryse will be using her team’s talents by preparing and hosting a radio segment on various technical aspects of design.
Keeping its theme and its signature, the company changed its name in 2017: Création Maryse Crôteau inc became CMC DESIGNER inc.

Complete refurbishment of my condo and my house. Wow! Wow! Everything has been planned and executed with professionalism: electrical plans, choice of materials, division of rooms, layout, etc. Thank you.
Very professional team that listens to your needs and will come up with great solutions. They designed the inside and outside of our home according to what we liked and disliked. Never pushy on any ideas and always comes up with terrific ideas.
Worked with Maryse 10 years ago when had our house built. It was time to refresh / modernize the decor, so we called her for help. We started the process in July 2015 and are about finished (spring 2016). We completely repainted the house (5000 sqft), changed a lot of furniture, window treatments and got rid of many items; clean look keeping in mind "less is better". We exceeded the budget, but are very happy with the new look. Thank you for your help Maryse.
Thanks to the whole team. CMC DESIGNER has made our ideas an incredible reality!
Based on our wish to have a mainly functional kitchen, they incorporated the following factors for the creation of the concept, proposals for the types of materials and for the suggested suppliers:
our lifestyle; our budget; while respecting our house’s integrity; superior quality standards, timeless and ecological; the end result exceeds our expectations.
We have worked with CMC Designer on several occasions. We are delighted with the services provided.
Maryse has taken the time to understand our needs and tastes in order to create contemporary spaces where life is good and which create a wow effect!
Her talent lies in her ability to create, her choice of materials and colours as well as her attention to detail.
We would never take the chance to renovate without CMC's magical touch!
We have entrusted CMC DESIGNER INC with the entire design of our Paton 1 condo unit in Laval.
We appreciated Maryse's efficient, professional and meticulous service.
We recommend her wholeheartedly.
I am more than satisfied with my collaboration with CMC. They offer very professional services and are always attentive to my needs and questions. They also provide thorough attention to detail at all levels: aesthetic, functional and architectural. Relationship with clients is always based on trust and respect. I highly recommend CMC for your next design projects. "It's a turnkey deal!"
