This year’s peak wedding season kicks off amidst the fervor of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal nuptials, an event the world started obsessing over the moment the couple announced their engagement. No wonder the folks at Toronto-based luxury event décor boutique firm Chairs & Thrones are reporting a spike in brides and event planners seeking furnishings and accent pieces that reflect the upscale grandeur, glitz and glamour befitting a Royal wedding.
With a focus on one-of-a-kind custom pieces, Chairs & Thrones, a division of G.P.S. Décors, designs and manufactures according to client specifications. Elegant French Victorian style inspires much of its work. The firm’s in-house creative team can also produce architectural décor that encapsulates event themes, such as Rome’s Trevi Fountain, only scaled to venue size. In addition to custom design, the studio’s 20,000-sq.-ft. showroom warehouse offers a large inventory of rental collections, from stylish sofas and seating to unique centrepieces and exquisite accents. The four-year-old company recently shifted gears from business-to-business-only access to include the public.
