Throwback time: Party Furniture Hire for Celebrity X Factor
This time last year, we had just installed one of our most high profile furniture hires in Rio Lounge’s history; party furniture hire for the Celebrity X factor green room! With England being back in lockdown again, unfortunately we have very little news in the way of current events. So, instead, we cast our minds back to this exciting time just 12 short months ago, when life seemed a little more fun!
No X Factor show for the first time in over 15 years!
2020 has been a strange year in many ways, to say the least. The Covid pandemic has certainly affected TV shows; lockdown and social distancing restrictions have meant that co-ordinating filming for TV has often been tricky, which has been a particular challenge for those programmes usually performed in front of live audiences. 2020 will be the first in more than 15 years without a series of the hit singing competition.
Future plans for X Factor show
Earlier this year, Simon Cowell revealed his plans to rest the X Factor format for 2020. As for when the show will return to our screens, ITV’s bosses have apparently said The X Factor could return in some form or another- but it may not be in the near future.
Being ITV’s most successful entertainment show for many years, the X Factor had undergone format changes last year, becoming a celebrity competition instead of auditioning members of the public. Reality star Megan McKenna was the eventual winner.
Party furniture hire for the 2019 X factor Green Room
Set up in a huge indoor marquee at London’s South Bank, the green room looked truly fabulous. The aim was to create a calm, chilled environment for contestants and their families to relax in. Taking centre stage were our beautiful white rattan Bulgari sofas. The Bulgari is one of our favourite pieces and never fails to make an impression; it definitely has the X factor! These were interspersed with shiny mirror cube tables topped with our gorgeous silver lanterns, adding to the ambience.
