Things to Consider When Choosing Event Furniture

Getting the right event furniture can make all the difference to the success of an event. Not only does the furniture serve an important practical function, it can also help establish the style and tone of an event. To get the perfect furniture for your event there are a number of factors you need to consider.

Type of event

Obviously one of the biggest influences on your choice of furniture will be the kind of event you are organising. The perfect furniture can make a big impact on the overall look of your event, adding an extra touch of elegance to a wedding or keeping a corporate event feeling professional. It’s also important to consider comfort – if people are going to be sitting on chairs for a long time, it’s a good idea to make sure they’ve got some decent cushioning!

Indoors or outdoors?

An indoor event usually gives you far more options as you don’t have to worry about mud or a sudden downpour and you can generally go for whatever you want inside or under the cover of a marquee. However, if you’re planning something that won’t be under cover your options may be more limited. Practical, hardwearing plastic furniture is ideal as it still looks good, but will easily stand up to anything the British weather can throw at it.


How long you need furniture for

Generally speaking, the length you hire furniture for won’t be an issue unless you are planning to hire a lot. If you do need someone to supply a large amount for a longer period, it is a good idea to plan this as far in advance as possible. Many suppliers will not be able to provide a high volume of furniture over a longer period, so make sure not to leave finding this out until the last minute!
