Today’s topic is something which is often neglected, even though it is one of the most important aspects of an event: furniture. But what is it about furniture that makes it so important? Surely, seats are seats, right? Wrong! Unfortunately, just as you already have a million and one things to think about, this is yet another that must be considered when planning the perfect event.
1 – Your guests won’t want to stand all the time
Even if your event has entertainment which encourages them to get up and dance or move around from station to station, they’re still going to need a place to rest up. It’s important to provide your guests with quality furniture that is both sturdy and comfortable.
2 – You want your guests to feel comfortable
At one point or another, we’ve all had to endure an event, sitting on an uncomfortable chair. This is the last thing that you want to put your guests through. If they’re required to sit down for a long duration of time, then you need to ensure that the seating that they have is comfortable and ergonomic. Additionally, you don’t want to have wonky chairs or an un-even table which need to be propped up with folded napkins or beermats. It’s unprofessional, it’s frustrating and it’s the sort of thing which might seem insignificant but will ultimately ruin your event.
3 – You want it to look great
You can really tell the difference between cheap furniture and decent furniture. Just remember that you’re not actually buying the furniture, so there’s no good going for the cheapest option. If you can afford to spend that little bit extra, then you should hire quality furniture for your event. This means that you’ll end up with quality and comfortable furniture, which also looks great as well! If you want to pull off a truly successful event, then these are the tiny details which need to be accounted for. Who is going to want to snap an Instagram selfie when they’re sat on cheap plastic chairs, unless they’re going to be doing so in irony? Don’t be a laughingstock!
4 – Safety first
Cheap furniture can easily be broken when someone sits down too hard. You can’t account for everyone and expect them not to slump down in a chair, or to get drunk and stand up on one to make a statement. In which case, you need to ensure that you invest in quality furniture which is safe and sturdy. That way, there can be no accidents and your guests will feel confident in the fact that you went above and beyond to secure their comfort.
