President & Founder

Sylvie Bigaouette


My extensive design background in Interior Design was formed over decades of experience in creating appealing and functional spaces for my clients.  My strengths extend into both the residential and senior living arenas with expertise in project management, renovations and additions, with a strong focus on kitchen and bathroom design.

With a keen understanding of design psychology and strong communications skills, nothing thrills me more than seeing a genuine smile on my clients faces upon completion of their projects! I love creating spaces that inspire, delight and tells their story.  

What began as a love for interior design eventually expanded into a passion for home staging.  As a professional CSP Certified Real Estate Stager, and founder of "La Maison Staging and Design", I quickly discovered the need for a stylish furniture rental company in the Ottawa area.  That led me to where we are today with the creation of Center Stage Furnishings.  

Que ça soit en anglais ou en français. Services are available in English and French.

I am thrilled to be offering Professional Stagers and Realtors® on-trend, upscale furnishings and decorative items!

VP of membership for the Real Estate Stagers Association. Member of Carleton Place Chamber of Commerce.

When I’m not designing or staging you’ll find me spending time with family and friends, curled up in my favourite chair with a good book or enthusiastically planning my next adventure travelling and exploring.
