CORT Events Rings in the Holiday Season with New Design Trends
11/7/2019
CORT Events, the nation’s leading furniture, lighting and décor rental company, announces the top holiday event design trends for the season: reimagined shades of green and bold reds, Danish décor, aromatic elements and engaging holiday activities.

As more and more event planners and exhibitors prioritize health and wellness for guests, CORT Events is encouraging clients to infuse event designs with “hygge.” Pronounced “hoo-ga,” hygge is a Danish lifestyle trend that embodies joy and simplicity, typically featuring organic wood, rustic décor and rich fabrics to create a warm and inviting space. Planners can play up the trend by adding faux fur elements, like the Scandinavian-inspired Wagner Chair, furry pillows, cozy blankets and patterned rugs. Statement seating, like the berry-colored Chandler Sofa, is also a bold way to infuse energy and a Danish modern aesthetic to designs.

“Hygge is one of the hottest trends in furnishings and event design, and it’s easy for planners to achieve through thoughtful décor and drapery,” said Dana. “All you have to do is mix and match by combining rich earth tones, textured fabrics and natural decor. For example, use CORT Events’ chocolate velvet Valencia sofa and spice orange velvet accent chair with natural wood or marble elements, and set off the vignettes with emerald green or rich burgundy draping and cabanas.”

In addition to exploring hygge design themes, planners and exhibitors are also venturing beyond traditional gold and silver holiday accents. Instead, many are layering green hues like moss, emerald and chartreuse or shades of red and pink along the same color spectrum, rather than pairing with contrasting colors.

“The holidays are joyful, which makes them a great time for experimenting with tonal color palettes, soothing textures and playful designs that spark imagination and wonder,” said Kevin Dana, executive director of marketing and product development at CORT Events. “We’re always looking for fresh ways our clients can dazzle guests with trending designs that leave a lasting impression into the New Year.”

Every event should incorporate all five senses, but this is especially important during the holidays. Whether it’s pine-scented decor, natural wreaths and garlands, or candles with delicious aromas like mulled cider, cinnamon and pumpkin, scent is an effective tool to evoke the holiday spirit and create a nostalgic atmosphere for guests. Planners can also tap into the sense of touch by staging interactive crafts or games, such as cookie decorating contests and DIY ornament stations, that leave guests with a tangible token of their event experience.
