Emily thrives on collaboration and unique challenges. She believes that “good design” stands the test of time, providing memorable and enjoyable experiences for the people who inhabit the spaces.

Outside of 4té, Emily is a vegan who loves the challenge of veganizing popular, non-plant-based dishes.

Fluently bilingual in French and English, Chantal leads Marketing and Business Development at 4té. She also leads and manages various design projects in the corporate, hospitality, residential and government sectors.
Chantal’s interest in business operations and her entrepreneurial spirit have been pivotal to 4té’s evolution. Add to that her dedication to responding to client needs, providing the highest levels of service, and meeting project goals—all client-driven qualities that have spurred a 16-year track record of success stories. Chantal is a recent recipient of the prestigious "Forty Under 40" Award which is one of the most sought-after and distinguished business awards for young business leaders in the National Capital Region.
Chantal is a creative and passionate person who believes that “work hard, play hard” is a good motto to live by.

Chantal’s idea of the perfect kid-free vacation is: heli-ski in the morning, free-dive in the afternoon, sleep, repeat.

A proud partner at 4té, Tzoofit leads the company's HR and Finance departments and has managed many successful interior design projects in the government and private sectors. Not only is she exceptionally multi-talented, grounded and focused, but she is also respected for her proactive approach to planning and impeccable organizational skills.
With every project, our team and clients alike benefit from Tzoofit’s candid and outspoken recommendations and strong focus on results. In the face of unexpected challenges, she can be counted on to deliver quick-thinking solutions.
As a vibrantly positive and resiliently resourceful person both professionally and personally, Tzoofit is valued in all that she does.
Tzoofit arrived in Canada in 1997, abandoning the beautiful Mediterranean beaches where she grew up to embrace the harsh Canadian winters—and since joining our team in 2000, 4té is all the better for it!
She has many areas of interest outside of work, but if you really want to pique her interest, she loves food and cooking; travel, art and books (especially crime detective and whodunit novels); cats (George & London) and last but definitely not least -- George Michael.
