With a decade of experience in the business of boutique furniture hire, at Rio Lounge we know how to make a VIP lounge look and feel really special. The summer music festivals are a real highlight of our year. In this feature we take a look behind the scenes at the VIP hospitality for one of the UK’s most important music festivals.
Barclaycard Presents: BST Festival
Spanning two weekends in July, The British Summer Time (BST) Festival in Hyde Park, London, is a world class annual music event. Now in its seventh year, BST hosts some of the most famous artists from around the globe. Hundreds of thousands of visitors attend each year. Catering for a diverse range of musical tastes, past headliners have included everyone from The Rolling Stones to Justin Bieber! 2019 festival looks to be just as star-studded, with acts including the legendary Stevie Wonder and Robbie Williams.
The VIP Festival Experience
For those who wish to enjoy a truly decadent festival experience, our client, Mark Butler Associates, offer exclusive VIP tickets, featuring pre-concert hospitality at the Bulgari Hotel. Located close to Hyde Park, in Knightsbridge, the luxurious Bulgari Hotel boasts elegant yet contemporary style, and quality of service that is second to none. Furthermore, the VIP guests love the luxurious surroundings, combined with the convenience of close proximity to the festival site!
Styling the VIP area
So, therefore our job was to provide hire furniture to seat the 100+ VIP guests. Choosing crisp white faux leather, our client opted for versatile modular sofas from our Ana Mandara range. Rio Lounge’s cubic white club ottomans were a great way to provide additional seating, while our matching Cabo Tables were the perfect complementary height. Our Hi-Ball poseur tables and Kubo Stools were perfect for those guests preferring to perch and mingle with friends and drinks.
First class service – year after year
We are proud to say that many of our customers book our services for the same events year after year. Because they know we provide both beautiful hire furniture and a reliable, professional delivery service, they can always book with confidence. Here’s what our client, Mark Butler Associates, had to say about our services in 2018:
‘Really hope we can work with you again soon… all went 100% to plan.. furniture looks stunning. Guys were efficient and just brilliant to deal with… it’s a tricky little venue so thank you! Absolutely tremendous! All I can say is….you guys rock!’
We are pleased to say that we will once again be providing furniture for the VIP hospitality at this year’s event. Barclaycard presents: British Summer Time runs this year from 5th-14th July.
