Clairoux unveils the interior fittings of a gourmet restaurant
After eight months of work and a year and a half in the midst of a pandemic, interior design firm Clairoux has unveiled Place Carmin, a brasserie-style gourmet restaurant located in the Quartier international de MontrÃ©al.
Restaurateurs MÃ©lanie Blanchette and FranÃ§ois Nadon, owners of Bouillon Bilk and Cadet, form the duo behind this new French brasserie. In this project, Clairoux designed a dining room, a bar area with two private dining rooms for groups and a terrace.
Natural light reflects off the walls, with honey-colored cabinets to warm the space. There is ceramic in the mezzanine toilets, natural tones, light natural wood and brick accented brass. On the furniture side, they added chairs with rounded shapes and selected fabrics, such as tawny leather.
Blanchette and Nadon worked with local designers and a great team to make this project a reality. The wallpaper, lighting and carvings were all made by local companies under the supervision of Les Deux Marteaux.
