Embrace Warm Weather with Outdoor Events
6/15/2019
This summer, leverage a sunny backdrop, warm breeze and open air atmosphere to plan the perfect outdoor event and leave your guests in awe. By incorporating these fresh trends in furniture and décor, you can create a unique event experience inspired by the natural world and anchored by on-trend industrial chic pieces.

Experiment with sustainability
As event attendees become increasingly concerned about staying eco-friendly, consider implementing zero-waste or waste-reducing measures to tap into this trend and elevate the event. Small details like substituting plastic products for recyclable materials can make a huge difference, and using sustainable, natural fabrics like cotton and linen add texture to your event while also reducing your carbon footprint.


Go organic
When it comes to botanicals, the bigger, the better! Grand topiaries and trees can mimic a lush garden and generate an immersive outdoor oasis. Create depth and intimacy in larger spaces by integrating faux foliage, like the Boxwood Hedge, which adds a backdrop of greenery for a natural touch. Use woven, wicker features as seen in the Boca Collection to offer seating that plays up your organic setting, and enhance your ambiance further with candles and string lights.


Explore Industrial Chic
Indoor trends are making their way outside this season with industrial chic furniture. Don't be afraid to mix and match metals for a refined look that doesn't feel stiff. The Rustique benches and barstools combined with Hayworth cocktail and end tables create an eclectic atmosphere that feels special and unique, while also allowing guests to relax. Utilize varying seating heights to give each guest a unique point of view, and add decadent florals for a finishing touch that's smooth, simple and modern.


When planning outdoor events, the world is truly your playground. Go as big and bold as you want by balancing natural elements with trendy industrial finishes for an exciting, engaging event experience.
