On-Trend Event Furniture Ideas for 2019
The basic building blocks of any successful event are the furnishings and decorative accents. The décor is what helps to create a distinct ambience. Like anything else related to design, event decor styles are always evolving. Freshness and relevance come from being able to balance the trendy and timeless. Event furniture trends tend to walk in step with the wider interior decorative fashions while keeping in mind the specific needs of event furniture – comfort, flexibility and durability.
From materials and finishes to furniture styles, here are the top trends in furniture rental in Dubai for 2019.
“Stylin & Proflin”: Showstopping Furniture Trends
Organic Materials and Smooth Silhouettes
Curves are making a shapely statement in events, seen in the sensual rounded shapes of couches, sofas, chairs and poufs. The rounded silhouettes of beige upholstered chairs and sofas, mounted on sleek metal legs, accompanied by low black round coffee tables create a sleek, classic, but modern look that suits professional environments, such as VIP lounges, conference offices and reception areas.
A Nordic Reboot
Scandinavian décor is a perennial favourite. The simplicity, comfort and refinement seem to never go out of style. It also hits many of the right notes of the current design trends including the curved shapes, and the use of natural materials, like wood, wicker and metal.
Nordic themes are being refreshed by the addition of new shades and tones to break up the familiar pale shades of grey, white and cream. Adding pieces in deeper pastel blue shades or even black gives the look a reboot .
Scandinavian furnishings are suitable for many working settings, like business meetings, conferences or workshops, and exhibitions.
Matte is the New Black
Black is an enduring classic fashion choice. In interior décor, it is often associated with edginess, modernity and urban environments. In 2019, expect to see black cropping more and more in events, not just as a decorative accent in accessories like frames, lamps and lighting, but a focal point in upholstery, furniture and textiles.
Think of adding classic tables in matte black to bring a chic freshness to meetings. Use black upholstered sofas, chairs and cushions in soft and rounded shapes to add depth to the curved trend.
Clean Lines and Metal Framing
More events are blending indoor and outdoor settings to create a richer atmosphere requiring classy furniture that can bridge the space between inside and out. Forget the cheap and cheerful plastic rattan outdoor furniture of the past. Toss out the heavy iron work patio sets.
Look for hardwearing pieces with light aluminium framing, clean lines and neutral shades that project a professional and smart casual feel. Increase the comfort quotient with customised cushions and throws.
Rattan Game Plan
Rattan and basket weave are being seen in many events lifting the mood both outdoors and indoors. It’s the very definition of a timeless natural material that’s clean, warm and tactile. Rattan can impart extreme elegance or luxurious relaxation, a formal seating area or a tropical hangout.
In 2019, expect to see more low-slung sofas and armchairs designed for ultimate relaxation but practical in any professional setting like a reception area or press room, and exhibitions. Low-slung furniture’s looks are emphatically modern without that ruggedness. Anything soft and comfy signals the ultimate luxury, so low-slung pieces can also be used for VIP seating and lounge areas. Add poufs or beanbags for casual settings or scatter low coffee tables and straight-backed chairs in complementary colours for a more business-like air.
Bohemian Rhapsody: The Pop Art – 70’s Revival
Retro looks always loom large in interior décor. Fabrics are lush, like velvet, in brilliant jewel tones. Patterns are funky abstract and geometric in shades of “Living Coral”, orange, peach and brown. The mood can be sweet or psychedelic, suiting special private events. For larger corporate do’s and exhibitions, tone it down, with just a few key pieces, like candy coloured moulded plastic chairs, or acidy illuminated furniture items.
Funky, Fresh & Classic Styling for Events
Sometimes, it’s easy to forget the contribution event staging makes to successful events and exhibitions. At the most perhaps more importantly, the decorative and design choices made in event planning are what create an atmosphere and memorable experience for visitors and guests.
