event furniture

When planning an event it’s important to consider all the different elements involved – from food, drinks and entertainment to decor and lighting. However, even more crucial is the type of furniture that is used to create an inviting and comfortable ambiance for your guests. Event furniture can add to the style of your event and set the mood for the entire venue, and there is a huge selection to choose from. Whether you need to rent tables, chairs or sofas for your next party, wedding or corporate function it’s important to decide which style best suits your needs and the format of your event.

One of the most common types of event furniture is chairs – either standard folding ones or a more luxury option such as chiavari chairs. Both options come in a range of sizes and styles, so you should discuss your needs with the event hire company to find out which are available. You might need a mixture of both to ensure there are enough seats for everyone, or you may need to use different furniture formats for different events depending on your audience size and the layout of the room.

Choosing the right type of event seating can also be dependent on how much interaction is needed. For example, cabaret style seating is ideal for a more intimate event where attendees are seated in close proximity to each other. This can help participants feel closer to each other and can also enhance the ambiance of the event.

Another option is the theater style set up which can be helpful for a presentation-type event where there is a central stage and a large group of attendees are required to attend. This can help to ensure the audience all have a view of the presenter and allows them to take notes and access equipment easily.

For more informal events where attendees aren’t expected to sit for long periods of time herringbone style seating is a good choice. This involves placing tables in an X shape and then seating attendees on the outsides of the X, which can save space while still ensuring that the majority of attendees are able to see each other.

If you’re planning a more formal event such as a corporate function or charity dinner then banquet style seating is ideal. This involves large round or rectangular tables which can seat several people at once, which is often a better solution for these type of events than having a number of smaller ones dotted around the room.

When it comes to choosing the best type of event furniture for your next event it’s important to think about your budget and the frequency of use you’re likely to need the furniture for. If you’re only hosting an event occasionally it may make more sense to rent your event furniture rather than purchase it, but for larger businesses, schools and venues where there is high demand it can be worth investing in event furniture to help save on maintenance costs.
