Rattan furniture hire at Goffs London Sale – a glamorous summer event

Outdoor Rattan Furniture Hire: white rattan sofas on wooden decking

Here at Rio Lounge, summer is our favourite season.  As specialists in outdoor furniture hire, sunny days are simply the best for showcasing our beautiful range of rattan sofas.  The May bank holiday weather isn’t looking to be quite as scorching as it was this time last year! However, we all loved the beautiful unseasonably warm sunshine over Easter weekend.  With sunny weather firmly in mind, we are taking a look here at an important summer event in the glamorous world of racehorse sales.

Goffs 1866 – A rich history in racehorse sales

white rattan sofas on decking at racehorse saleRio Lounge have supplied chic outdoor rattan furniture hire for VIP areas at a number of major events in the racing calendar, including Epsom and Goodwood.  However, the event we have featured here, the Goffs London Sale, is a little different! The Goffs brand, originating in Ireland, has a rich history in racehorse sales, dating back over 150 years.  Held in the beautifully tended gardens of Kensington Palace, the London Sale takes place in June each year.  Sponsored by Selfridges, it’s an occasion high on style, opulence and free-flowing champagne! As the unofficial start of Royal Ascot, investors, sellers and guests fly in from all round the globe to see some of the best (and most expensive) racehorses in the UK and Ireland being offered for auction. Featured here are images from the 2018 event which have been kindly provided by our client, event planners Lillingston.


White rattan – the perfect outdoor furniture hire
