CEO + Lead Designer
My passion for design started as a little boy when helping my father and grandfather build homes on Vancouver Island.
I remember helping my father lay carpet and put up walls in new developments in Victoria neighborhoods. We would sit together and draft blueprints as I learnt the basics of the architecture and design development process. I became so engrained in the love for structure that I knew one day I wanted to be a designer of purpose.
My motivation for design continued in high school where at 18 I won a small block award for my Miami- inspired dream home drafting creation and achieved the highest marks and recognition in my Interior Design class. In September 2013 I began my Interior Design educational journey. I obtained my Interior Design Diploma (D.I.D.) at the Visual College of Art and Design and won the Best in Show at our Graduation Portfolio Show in April 2016.
Today I reflect on my progress, my style and my inspirations and I see the designer I’ve become. Through my natural ability to take a blank canvas and create something incredible to my simplistic concrete and wood themed design, I have developed into a highly motivated, engaged and inspired designer ready to take on the interior design and architecture industry and place my name as a design stamp.
Let the next chapter of my journey commence.
I come from the beautiful land of France. I grew up with beautiful pieces of architecture and design all around that interior design became an undeniable choice for my career.
I took an early interest in artistic form and material expression techniques, it deeply fascinated me.
I graduated in Interior Design from the Itecom Art Design School in Paris. Right after I finished school, I joined Christian Dior Couture. I must confess this is where I developed my taste for high-quality products and materials. I have an eye for intricate details because of my experience back home.
I have always been passionate about traveling and exploring other places, cultures, and languages. I moved to Vancouver in 2017 and started working on residential and commercial projects here. It has been a great time since then.
I am pretty excited to be a part of Chad’s team. We are all driven by a passion for design, which makes it so much better! I am continually working on creating beautiful and mindful designs while keeping the social and environmental aspects in my mind. Because balance is the key!
Interior Designer, LEED Green Associate
Raised in the beautiful Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada, I always knew I wanted to pursue a career in Interior Design.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Interior Design from the Wilson School of Design at KPU with distinction, and I recently received my certification as a LEED Green Associate.
When I moved to Vancouver it was one of the best decisions I ever made. My love for interior design reflects in my personal life in so many ways. I spend a lot of time reading climate activism and drawing cityscapes. I am big on traveling, and I make plans to visit new and beautiful places whenever I can.
I am very passionate about designing, and I am always looking to find inspiration. Most of all, I am motivated by the people around me, their cultures, stories, and lives. This is precisely why I love working with the team at Chad Schmuland Design.
I am committed to improving the industry, including advocating for ethical manufacturing and green building practices. And I hope to eventually be involved in the design of commercial and hospitality environments where I can express my creativity and technical knowledge on a larger scale.
3D Rendering Specialist
I have 6 years of experience in design and construction coordination for commercial and residential projects as a Designer and an Architect.
I have also had the pleasure of working on multiple projects internationally. I can certainly say that it shaped me and my job considerably.
Not just interior designing, but I am also proficient in 2D drafting and 3D visualization design with comprehensive designing software that results in producing customized and unique projects. I take pride in my work. I am grateful to have come across all the opportunities in life, including Xochicalco University, Mexico, where I completed my Bachelors in Architecture in 2014.
My vision is to transform the way architecture is viewed, designed, and advertised. I wish to contribute to the use of cutting-edge technology like 3D visualization tools that can help achieve extremely outstanding quality images. These images can prove really groundbreaking for architects and designers as they can display these to clients to project a project's most accurate idea.
I am happy to be a part of the Chad Schmuland Design Team, and we look forward to turning your dreams into reality!
