Which interior trends will we be coveting at our events in 2020? We take a look at the big predictions for the year, and show you how you can bring them to life at your event, wedding or party with our collection of hire furniture and decor.

1. Natural Materials

As we become more environmentally conscious and boycott products that are harmful to the planet in the production process, natural materials are coming into their own. They help us to create calming environments that are beneficial for our health and wellbeing. And in addition to this, natural colours, such as earthy brown tones, remind us of the outdoors which has been a massive trend at the Milan Furniture Fair.

Sustainability will be top of the trends for a long time to come, and natural materials such as wood, cork, bamboo and glass do less damage to the environment, unlike plastic. There is a strong demand for materials that can be upcycled, reused and replenished.

Our Rustic Trestle Tables and Benches are all made from recycled wood, and our Rustic Poseur Tables from reclaimed scaffolding poles. By hiring these into your corporate event or wedding you can support the use of natural and sustainable materials, and show your attendees that you are environmentally conscious.

2. Classic Blue – Pantone Colour of the Year

Pantone announced that its Colour of the Year for 2020 is ‘Classic Blue’. They chose this hue as it instills feelings of calm, confidence and connection- who wouldn’t want this at their event?

Our Rustic Trestle Tables are the perfect blank canvas for bringing any colour palette to life. Try incorporating the Classic Blue trend into your event by dressing your tables with blue accents, such as taper candles and napkins, as we did at the recent Cheltenham Wedding Expo.

3. Vertical Gardens

Green has been the dominant trend in interior design for the past three years. As we become more aware of the benefits of living around plants, and their mood boosting qualities, this trend sees no sign of waiving in 2020.

There has been a 287% increase in the amount of people searching for floor to ceiling green on Pinterest so far this year. Our Artificial Plant walls are the perfect solution to bringing the green trend to your event. Hire them with our Chesterfield sofas to freshen up a meeting area, or use 3 to create a topiary backdrop for event attendees to take photos in front of. They are a great solution to bring colour into any empty corporate space. Also, unlike living walls, they require zero maintenance, what’s not to love. To create an extra green space, hire our walls with our Wooden Planter Boxes to bring some rustic charm to your event.

4. Plump and Rounded

In 2020 we will want rounder, curvier furniture. According to Vogue Living, comfort will reign supreme, as we try to maintain a healthy balance of work and play at corporate events.

Let your guests sink deep into one of our Chesterfield sofas or Armchairs at your next event. Hire in a selection of 2 seaters and 3 seaters to create comfy break-out spaces and meeting areas.

5. Chalkboards

No longer confined to the classroom, chalkboards are back and cooler than ever with  searches for chalk art up by 664% last year on Pinterest.

Hire one of our many chalkboards to create original signage for your event, whether you are pointing the way to the buffet, stage or even the toilets. Whether you choose to bring in a sign-writer, or create the wording yourself, make your signage as personal as possible, and bring a rustic aesthetic to your event.
