King’s Wharf was celebrating the Grand Opening of their next condo building, the Killick. For this VIP event staging project, I received a call from the Event Manager, Menna Riley, who was looking for furniture rental options different from what everyone had seen so many times at events around Halifax.
The venue was amazing, with full length windows overlooking the Halifax Harbour and the downtown area, and concrete floors, walls and columns. I brought in grey leather sofas, modern black chairs, and benches to make separate conversational areas within the space. I used white glass occasional tables and for the benches I used white ones, and areas rugs to soften the space slightly and to complete the separate conversational areas. Having a lot of these white nesting occasional tables I was able to add them in additional areas to create a real cohesive look, while tightening the space to create a more intimate setting.
For the event décor rental for the seating areas I used pieces that were on the industrial side and somewhat gender neutral and embraced the beautiful natural roughness of the concrete environment. Menna had a bar area, coat check, red carpet area with artwork set up, and lighting to pull the space together beautifully! It was a great event to work on, the final results were great and Menna was such a treat to work with!
