OUR STORY

Founded in 2002 and based out of Canada’s emerging creative hub, Montreal, CDI Furniture is one of the leading design firms and furnishing suppliers in the industry.

With the recent completion of our brand new 80,000 square foot office and showroom space in the Mont-Royal Design District, we are expanding and evolving as a dominant force in furniture and design. Our in-house team of designers from around the world each contribute to the eclectic assortment of products in the lineup. We create and manufacture home furnishings, lighting, and décor accessories, as well as conceptualize retail spaces and interiors - offering a full-service from inception to completion. Our approach is team based, millennial focused, and aesthetics driven, which truly sets us apart from the rest.

The CDI team is made up of a young collective of talented product, marketing, digital, and finance specialists, as well as a group of hand-picked collaborators – each of whom inject their personal touch into the brand. We offer first-rate customer service from our talented sales force and executive teams, and elevated project managers to suit all our clients' needs. We believe in expert craftsmanship, design innovation, and empowering young creatives to bring the CDI Furniture vision to life.
