Celebrating a Year of Milestones: A Look Back at Our Achievements in 2023
As we bid farewell to 2023, it's with immense pride and gratitude that we reflect on the incredible journey we've had over the past year. This has been a year of growth, innovation, and the realization of ambitious dreams for our team at Charles Virone Concept. Today, we take a moment to highlight some of the standout achievements that have defined our remarkable year.
1. Expanding Horizons: Showroom Openings in Outremont and Miami
Undoubtedly, one of the most exciting chapters of our year was the opening of two new spaces in Outremont, Quebec and Miami, Florida. These milestones mark a significant step forward in our commitment to providing our clients with exceptional spaces to experience our products firsthand.
Our Outremont location is strategically situated in the upscale culinary & retail district of Laurier Avenue West. Surrounded by an array of refined bespoke boutiques yet the only one of its kind in the area, it stands as a local gem with its European design energy and aesthetics. Appreciated for its perspective on fine Italian design & artisanal culture, the new boutique is pleasantly at home, surrounded by rich local history, art, and fine dining experiences.
Our Miami location brings our design philosophy to a vibrant and diverse market, based in the cultural hub that is Little River Miami. Known for its emerging arts and cultural scene with galleries, studios, and creative spaces which contribute to its artistic identity, it's become a hub for local artists and entrepreneurs, fostering a sense of community and innovation.
Both locations serve as a testament to our belief in the power of immersive retail experiences.

2. In-House Custom Millwork: Elevating Craftsmanship to New Heights
At the core of our commitment to quality and innovation, CVC continues to nourish and push for “good design” and excellence in craftsmanship in our custom millwork division. The ongoing expansion of CVC Millwork propels us to consistently challenge our capabilities. This strategic initiative not only reaffirms our commitment to meticulous work but also empowers us to provide customized solutions that align with the distinct requirements and visions of our clients.
3. Collaborations that Define Excellence
Amongst our teams’ several trips to Italy our most memorable was our journey to the heart of the country’s fine manufacturing district. Our dedicated interior design staff recently had the privilege of visiting the exquisite factories of our esteemed partners. From the meticulous carving of wood to the delicate hand-painting of intricate designs, every step in the manufacturing process unfolded like a symphony of skilled hands and passionate hearts. The visit not only deepened our appreciation for the artistry involved but also forged stronger connections with our valued partners. Witnessing the dedication of the artisans firsthand has imbued our team with a renewed sense of inspiration, ensuring that our designs continue to be infused with the timeless allure of Italian craftsmanship.
Furthermore, throughout the year, we've had the privilege of adding new collaborations with some of the most talented designers, architects, and industry experts. These collaborations have not only enriched our creative process but have also led to the development of groundbreaking projects that push the boundaries of design. We’ve developed new associations with fantastic brands such as Pent Fitness, Luceplan, Rina Minardi, Gardeco and Ichendorf Milano.
4. Nurturing Talent: Investing in Our Team
As we celebrate our organizational achievements, we also recognize that none of this would have been possible without the dedication and talent of our team. This year, our family has grown, welcoming individuals who will continue to push the company forward. Our people are our greatest asset, and their commitment has been instrumental in driving our success.
Looking Ahead: A Future Filled with Promise
As we turn the page on this extraordinary year, we do so with a sense of accomplishment and excitement for what lies ahead. From the development of our connections in the new market of Miami to hosting stimulating events for our community in Montreal, we embark on the next chapter with the same passion, dedication, and unwavering commitment to excellence that defines CVC.
Thank you to our clients, partners, and team members for being an integral part of this incredible journey. Here's to a new year filled with continued success, creativity, and the pursuit of excellence!
