Designer / Founder
Frédric Clairoux was born a designer. Highly stimulated by the art of creating, and guided by an intuitive passion for interior design, notably in real estate development, it did not take Fréderic long to decide on his career path during his studies.
He quickly focused on the design of new interior spaces, layouts and renovation. His goal has always been to seek out harmony among the rooms he designs, by marrying aesthetics with the functional. Fréderic first worked for some of the most prestigious design firms in Canada and the United States before founding his own design studio in Montréal – FX Studio par Clairoux – just over a decade ago, in order to give free reign to his creativity.
The studio became Fréderic’s playing field where he is free to tap his experience and let loose his creative spirit on a variety of projects. From residential design to furniture design, not to mention commercial and corporate projects, the studio has developed expertise in a range of sectors thanks to the experience of its founder and his many collaborators.
After many years of progressive work at the studio and an impressive network of suppliers and partners, Frédric Clairoux decided to focus almost entirely on business development, large-scale projects and high-end residential design projects
(developed under the Clairoux brand). Notwithstanding, as a seasoned entrepreneur, he is always involved in each project to provide advice to his experienced design team, and invests in each project as if it were his own.
His designs are infused with various styles and trends. As he started his career in New England, Frédric’s designs often marry classical touches with a modern and elegant overall style. Volume, perspective and the integration of natural light are an integral part of his design criteria. Preferring to work with raw materials, he likes to play with wood and marble, adding lovely wisps of colour. His end goal often remains the same: to create functional interiors that display impeccable design features to stand out over the years.
Frédric is easily approachable, and is pleased to discuss your unique design project that meets your needs.
