ITV hire sofas for ‘This Morning’ Love Island feature!
If you’re a fan of ITV2’s Love Island, then you’re no doubt thrilled to hear that the latest series is due to return to our screens next Monday 28th June. After a year off in 2020, due to the Covid pandemic, the hit reality show is back! With some dedicated Love Island fans in the Rio Lounge office, we were super excited to get a call from ITV last week: Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby were to present a special feature on This Morning. Promoting the popular dating show’s return, and chatting to some past ‘islanders’, they wanted to hire sofas to create a chilled out Balearic club vibe in the studio.
Our sofas are becoming TV and film regulars
It’s not the first time we’ve hired our funky sofas for a Love Island event! Back in 2018, our sofas were used by the ITV Love Island production team for a sales pitch. Check out our previous blog to find out more. And of course, it’s by no means the first time our sofas have appeared on TV; for example, we created the incredible X Factor Green Room back in 2019. Moreover, our hire sofas have also appeared in films, such as Bridget Jones’ Baby (in the scene with Ed Sheeran!) Additionally, they are also due to be featured in a new BBC drama: watch this space to find out more……
Using hire sofas to creating that beach club look in the ITV studio
White rattan chill-out sofas are our speciality. So, it’s easy to see why Rio Lounge furniture was a natural choice for a Love Island feature.
The rattan sofa used here is our beautiful curved Bulgari, in white. The really cool thing about this piece is that it’s so versatile. Being modular in design, you can choose to separate the sections if you wish. (as they have done here in the studio.) Ideal for where social distancing is required. A matching round glass-topped rattan table completes the set, providing plenty of space to pop down drinks and nibbles.
Check out our main picture for the full effect. Miniature palm trees, beach accessories and white monogrammed suitcases completed the finished look.
