Chiks Design Group was established in the fall of 2009, shortly after Cathi closed the doors to her downtown custom furniture boutique, Urban Home. Her favourite part of managing that business was the time spent getting to know her clients, helping them solve space planning issues, and configuring the perfect furniture plan for their home. It was a natural transition to interior design and decorating, working from her home studio for the first five years while she grew her clientele, portfolio, and the Chiks brand.
Working with clients of local home builder Harker Homes to select their finishes and colour palettes, as well as many residential clients on home renovation projects big and small, Chiks also ventured into commercial design projects in 2017 - including Ramona’s Pizza and Social Hall, Co-Work, Eastside Grocery, Urbn Liquor, Urbn Leaf (Grande Prairie, Valleyview, Dawson Creek), Ecole St. Gerard’s entry, foyer and gathering area, Holy Cross School washrooms, as well as some commercial projects that have been designed but not yet executed: Sheshu’s Sizzling Tandoor restaurant and Ken Sargent reception and client lounge area.
Our gallery includes photos of various residential projects we have completed, with commercial project photos coming soon.
The design team talent has evolved over the years, and you can read about the current members here.
