10 Favourite Event Furniture Pieces in 2022

Furniture is the Essence of Event Settings

Furniture is one of the most important dimensions of interior design. It adds drama and interest to a space – through lines and curves, texture and colour. Furniture is an essential item in staging an event. That is why furniture and accessory choices are at the heart of creating and implementing a unique event theme. Tables, chairs, furnishings, lighting and décors are all important elements in creating an immersive atmosphere that can transform any occasion from the ordinary to the unforgettable.

Renting Furniture for Events: The Right Choice at the Right Price

Renting furniture is always a better option than buying for the following reasons:

  • Faster and more convenient than buying – Choose the items you need from a catalogue and receive your furniture items on time. 
  • Wider choice in terms of styles and trends
  • Reduced overall costs – Renting is always cheaper than buying
  • No need to store items between events – Rent only what you need when you need it

Different events require different types of furniture. The event and theme should drive your furniture selection whether you are planning a large conference or exhibition, a wedding, or an outdoor concert or an intimate dinner. The best furniture rental providers will be able to offer you much more than basic seating options. You will have a choice between different design styles – contemporary, classic, outdoor, industrial, and so on, as well statement pieces to uplift any setting. The items will be in perfect condition and there will be a range of accessories and companion pieces to complement the look.

10 Furniture Pieces for Your 2022 Events

1. Saray Velvet Sofa

This sofa is a sumptuous ageless piece with a modern-day spin. Soft velvet fabric, in a rich shade of blue, or neutral beige, is set off by brushed gold metal legs. The classically inspired shape is the core piece of the Saray collection featuring elegant bar stools, a marble topped cocktail table and an exquisite VIP armchair encased in gold-finished metal. Use the entire set to create a VIP lounge for a formal event. Build a mood around the sofa using cushions in complementary colours. As a stand-alone piece, it can express both glitzy glamour and splendid opulence. Play around with its placement and the setting to transform from a fun contemporary luxe mood to understated elegance and refinement.

2. Forest Chair

The Forest chair, an Electra exclusive, goes all out for an authentic feeling. Drawing its inspiration from the natural grace of trees, the chair features a slim padded seat, signature Y-back supports and semi-circular arms. There is a timeless feel to these chairs and a restrained smartness. Equally at ease in outdoor or indoor settings, off-set the neutral shades with vibrant green plants or flowers. Match it with the Forest stool and the Forest cocktail table for a tropical retro-colonial club vibe or use two or more of these chairs to create an intimate corner. The natural lines and neutral colours perfectly encourage tranquillity.

Create one large seating area or several smaller arrangements. This modular set makes it all possible. The choice is yours!

4. Rattan sofa

The Lolah Rattan three-seater sofa is a cult favourite, made of blonde open weaved rattan with cool white cushions. This article can be playful, boho, or chic depending on the setting. It works both outdoors and indoors. Create cosy seating arrangements with other items from the Lolah set including the Lolah Rattan armchair, the Lolah Rattan sofa and the Lolah Rattan coffee table. Set up a delightful reception area for exhibition visitors or guests including items from the Scandinavian collection. The natural brown tones of the wood are perfectly aligned with the Scandinavian style – clean lines, natural finish, neutral colours.
