Event Tips: Let’s Talk About Chairs

So, let’s talk about chairs! We know that a lot of the time clients think that the banquet chairs supplied by the venue are the only option and to cover them is the only solution. If you can relate to this, just wait a second and read on, because for a modern bride, planner or event decorator chair covers are no longer the all rounded solution they used to be.

When we started Perched, our frustration with ill-fitting fabric covers, the dreaded spandex cover or sitting on yet another Chiavari chair was one of the solutions that we wanted to address.  

Many clients think their chair selection won’t have an effect on the look and feel of their event, but the truth is, chairs are the base of your aesthetic. Chairs are one of the first elements your guests will see and, if you have a chair that contradicts or alienates your style, it can create a chaotic and disorganized feel. Chairs have the ability to set the tone, whether it be chic modern or lush garden, they ground your style and allow your finer details to shine.

Here are 5 alternative chair styles for your event:

  1. The Eames Chair – For a modern minimalist affair.

The Eames style chair is an iconic design that stands the test of time, and will look fresh in any room amongst any type of decor, modern or traditional. Not the typical chair at events but this chair looks great whether accompanying a banquet table or used in classroom or theatre style.

  1. The Swan Chair – For design-savvy clients who seek art in furniture.

Looking for an accent piece that will be sure to be talked about? We offer the Swan Chair designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958. These chairs are designed to inspire, be talked about and add a bold touch of style and glamour to your event.

  1. The Bench – For a rustic feel and a client with a soft spot for industrial style and the great outdoors.

An oldie but goodie – the bench. More and more benches are being used in events, whether as seating for a wedding ceremony or to accompany a family style dining experience. Simple but effective and used with other chairs or as a stand alone piece benches invite your guests to enjoy an outdoorsy, fun experience. Each of our benches is 6′ long – perfect seating for 3 guests at our 8′ table or 4 guests in a ceremony or theater style seating arrangement.  

  1. The Tolix Stool – Taking events to new heights.

Stools are great when used in a cocktail style setting or when used to break up an event adding variations in height or to create conversation zones. Our Tolix stool is perfect for an edgy, trend setting environment. The industrial style stool, which comes in two heights, works perfectly in any environment whether juxtaposed against soft hues or used to complement a more minimalist feel.

  1. The Easy Chair – For a client that wants something special that money still can buy.

Living in Trinidad & Tobago a lot of the events are outdoor and often clients are looking to add something special but practical. The Easy Chair is the perfect solution for this.  A design feat it stands out in any environment – rain or shine.

So remember times are changing and at Perched we aim to continue to give you innovative design solutions for your events, so there really isn’t any need to cover things up.
