Recently we had the pleasure of being invited to the Great Hire showroom  in North London so that we could remind ourselves of the beautiful selection of furniture that they provide, as well as have a sneak peek at their newest items added to the collection.

Following our warm welcome, different members took turns in spending time with us, showing us around the warehouse and explaining all areas of the furniture hire process.  We finished our tour by being taken up to their mezzanine level for a wander round their impressive showroom, set out with lots of wonderfully styled design combinations.  Apart from providing stylish furniture, Aundrea Insinna and her team have the most exceptional eye for detail and styling.  They had grouped together pieces of furniture, expertly selected and positioned to create a fantastically inspiring space.

After having a good look round to admire all the set ups (and, of course, doing some ‘window shopping’ for our own homes) we then sat down for lunch.  Great Hire so kindly provided us with delicious Lebanese food which we were only too happy to devour whilst continuing to discuss the perfect furniture for our upcoming weddings and events.

We thought, to give our lovely wedding couples some inspiration, that we would pick out some of our favourite and most popular pieces for use in our Corinthia spaces…

Chandelle Chairs

Now these are the chairs that never fail to make a bride swoon!  The ‘Chandelle’ chairs are available in an wide range of colours, which create a bespoke feel to any event and set up.  In our Corinthia London Ballroom, you can keep it simple and classic with the all-white, or you can mix it up and go for the pinks, greys and metallic colours which all look fantastic in our spaces.

CK Chairs

The ‘CK’ chairs are equally versatile as the ‘Chandelle’, coming in many different colours but with a slightly more contemporary edge to the design.  Another advantage of the ‘CK’ chairs is that they are slightly narrower than most therefore are ideal for creating a bit more space.  We loved seeing them in our Ballroom, paired with beautiful long white ‘Sandstone Willow’ dining tables.

Bars

In addition to chairs, tables, lamps, sofas and all the other wonderful Aladdin’s Cave of items that they stock, Great Hire also have a wonderful range of bars which are both stylish and practical for service.  An attractive feature bar can really make a difference to your wedding space, with our favourites for the Corinthia London event spaces being the ‘Classic White’ bar (we are sure it was made especially for our alcoves!) and the circular mirror bar.

Lounge Furniture

Many of our couples like to turn around the Ballroom after dinner into more of a lounge-like affair, so we remove the dinner tables and create a feature bar along with adding comfortable and stylish seating.  We love the range of luxury sofas, chairs and bar stools that Great Hire have to offer as they allow us to really tailor the set-up to our guests’ preferences as well as being practical and covering the need for seating.  Here you will see some of our favourite pieces for creating a lounge set-up.

We would just like to thank Great Hire for a wonderful time at their showroom recently, but also for always being on hand to provide us with such wonderful furniture pieces to incorporate into our weddings and events!

If you are interested in looking into these for your wedding here at Corinthia, just send us an email and we will arrange all that is needed for you.

With love from Corinthia London,
