Something New . . . Upgrading a Luxurious Wedding Hall

We have worked with the owners of the Island Chateau in Staten Island for years.  Their ability to run amazing events is inspiring.  With so many events on the books, we had a short window, just 4 days,  to give this grand greeting hall a face lift.  We wanted to keep the design luxurious and elegant just like the many beautiful weddings being held in this space.  

 The sweeping grand staircase was accented by applied panels at the underside of the stairs. It was top with cove lighting and Swarovski sconces from local distributor We Got Lites. We were able to achieve a polished and sophisticated ambiance.

 The arch and curvilinear feeling of this seating area was accentuated in our design. Patent leather tone on tone cream chairs and a 5'-0" circular rug in brown tones is flanked by carefully curated art and crystal sconces.

The greeting hall at the Island Chateau is designed for photo opportunities at the grand staircase and piano. All wallcoverings are from Koroseal in tone on tone palettes with a light sheen. When the guests arrive they are treated with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. It exudes great hospitality and charm.
