California Closets Vancouver is proud to say we've been serving Vancouver and the lower mainland for over 20 years. In fact, we were the first international franchise for the company! Since 1999, it has been owned by three partners: Stephan Maingot, John Duffield, and Claudia Duffield -- all with various skills and experience, but with the common goal of bringing the best products and service to California Closets customers.

Claudia was a sales designer for California Closets and brings an aesthetic eye to every project, making sure that each designer on our team creates the best custom solution for each customer.
