We’ve had a glorious summer this year which has meant a fantastic festival season. We have been lucky enough to provide furniture for a number of festivals including the V Festival and the Isle of Wight Festival which was really exciting. We have also worked at a number of big sporting events such as the Duke of Essex Polo.
If you’ve always associated festivals with muddy fields and cramped tents think again. The current trend is for luxury all the way with festival goers choosing to ‘glamp’ in glamorous yurts or state of the art motorhomes. And that’s not all. They want to enjoy their day in relaxed surroundings so many festivals are now offering VIP lounge areas where you can upgrade your ticket to gain access to an indulgent lounge full of opulent daybeds and giant champagne bowls overflowing with bottles of bubbly. And that’s where Rio Lounge come in. We can create extravagant surroundings anywhere – even in the middle of a field! Here are some ideas for how we can help with your festival furniture hire.
A Traditional English Summer
There’s nothing like a traditional deckchair to bring comfort and style to an event. Our gorgeous Rio Deckchairs in plain or striped material bring elegance to any festival and look particularly great lined up alongside a pool area. The summer sun can be hot hot hot but you can relax in the shade of one of our giant Cantilever Umbrellas to make sure you don’t get burnt. Of course an English summer can also bring rain but don’t worry – Rio Lounge are the UK’s leading supplier of rattan furniture which is perfect for festivals as it is robust and waterproof! For an added touch of class you can add our giant Rio Chandelier to an indoor tent or marquee which always looks fabulous.
We are experts in creating stylish relaxed VIP area’s for festival goers to chill out in. Our Marrakesh Club Sets are perennially popular and it’s easy to see why. They bring urban chic wherever they go but they’re also super comfy – just right for resting weary feet after seeing your favourite band. For an extra touch of opulence you could accessorise the VIP area with our colourful scatter cushions or chic silver and gold Prive Floor Slabs. Add atmosphere by grouping together our silver lanterns to light up the night so that they party can keep going even when the sun’s gone down. And remember VIP’s don’t want to feel the cold so it’s also a great idea to hire our stylish Athena Patio Heater for when there’s a chill in the air. We also hire out fabulous Marquee Letter Lights which can be used to spell any word you want. These give a really glamorous feel to a festival VIP area.
Pop Up Bars
Pop up bars and restaurants are really on-trend at the moment and our furniture is perfect for creating contemporary styling anywhere and everywhere. Our South Beach Bistro Sets provide ideal bistro style seating for bar areas and they are as comfortable as they are stylish. For a cool white and chrome theme you could try our popular Mojito Poseur Stools and Mojito Poseur Tables which provide convivial seating areas that are perfect for festival goers to relax, chat and catch up.
