Event Furniture Ideas the Pros Use

Event Furniture

Staging or designing an event can be a tremendous undertaking. There is so much to think about and so many details to be sure that you have crossed off of your list. From the food and the guest list, to the lighting and the music, everything has to be just right. One of biggest components to staging an event is furnishing the space. Event furniture, in particular, can be tricky – particularly if you are not very experienced in planning events. Whether your event is large or small, you will need to ensure that you have enough seating and table space for everyone in attendance.

Everyday, we work with event planners, large auditoriums and meeting spaces, and companies that need top-notch event furniture solutions that not only meet their design needs – but that also meet budgetary requirements. To help you get started in your planning, we’ve put together a few of our favorite event furniture ideas that the pros use.

Professional Event Furniture Design Ideas Everyone Can Use

There are many purposes for event furniture. Seating obviously gives your guests a place to sit and rest, while tables give your guests a place to sit and eat, as well as a place to set their plates, glasses, or other personal items. Event furniture also sets the tone and theme for your event, and designates specific areas. Guests can walk into a well-designed event and immediately know where they should go to get a drink, where they should eat, where they should socialize and talk, and where they should be for the main presentation or event.

Have you ever considered adding and incorporating lounge furniture and other furniture into your event design?

If you haven’t, you should!

Some of the benefits of adding lounge furniture to your event include:

  • It gives your guests a comfortable place to sit and rest
  • Provides your guests with the opportunity to socialize with other guests
  • It can fill a large event venue, which would otherwise look too empty
  • It can help build the overall theme of your event
  • It sends a signal to your guests of where they should sit, stand, or relax — and, just as importantly, where not to

With the spring upon us and summer coming up, now is the time of year to think about outdoor events. There are a wealth of great ideas for outdoor event furniture.

Here’s some of our favorites from the pros:

Chunky or trendy lounge furniture in all white. This particular look sets a very sophisticated and upscale tone for your event. This can fit many event themes based on the furniture chosen and the arrangement.

Special tenting. This is a great idea to designate a seating or socializing area separate from the main dining or event area. Tents are available in a wide range of sizes and colors, to perfectly fit with your event theme.

Pay attention to the lighting. For evening outdoor events, a string of white lights can do wonders for a special seating area. Play around with your lighting and see which best fits the theme of your event and the mood that you are going for.
