The world of sports hospitality is a stressful one, both in the lead up to the event itself and, of course, during the event. High profile, iconic occasions such as the Grand National, Cheltenham Festival, the Epsom Derby and many others, for example, are exactly that – iconic. The furniture has to look great – after all, you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.
In today’s article, we look at table and chair combinations for events such as these, drawn from experience of what is popular with our clients around the country. You might find these useful, therefore, when planning your own activities.
Round dining tables & Chiavari chairs
A table and chair combo doesn’t come much more classic than this. Yes, perhaps it’s more suited to a wedding, but the Chiavari chair really is the mother of all banqueting chairs and is suitable for any occasion. Think of a hospitality chalet, corporate box or similar, and you’ll get a feel for where this combo is suited. Of course, you’ll probably know that round dining tables come in a variety of sizes, from 3ft round to 7ft round and everything in between – and obviously the larger the table, the more guests can be seated around it. So, consider your space, and the number of guests, and hire accordingly.
Montreal tables & cross back chairs
If you’re looking for a more rustic look and something that is out of the ordinary, then why not consider our Montreal tables with cross back chairs – the dark oak cross backs go with these tables perfectly, for example. The dark oak tabletops really do look great and are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. Combined with matching chairs with your choice of seat pad, you really can make a great impression at your event, similar to the picture above which is at Aintree Racecourse in one of the temporary restaurants.
Scaffold dining tables & Tolix chairs
For that industrial look, why not check out our scaffold dining tables combined with Tolix chairs, and these chairs can either be hired with or without arms. Tolix chairs are available in a number of different colour options, but we’d suggest that the gun metal version goes best with this table. As for the table itself, it is made from reclaimed scaffolding poles and timber, which has been treated and varnished, providing you with a furniture combo to be proud of.
Rio dining tables & Rio chairs
Generally found at modern, sports events behind the scenes, our Rio dining table with Rio chairs looks fabulous for any hospitality area. The table has a white melamine top, so there is no need for a tablecloth. The Rio chairs have a polished chrome frame and are available in a variety of different chair cover options, both in coloured fabric and faux leather options. There is a world of choice here – enjoy!
Walnut tables with copper hairpin legs & Brompton chairs
And finally, how about this gorgeous combo of a walnut table with our Brompton chair for stylish, VIP restaurants and hospitality areas. Our Brompton chair really does ooze style and sophistication, with few other dining chairs being able to match up in popularity for these types of events. This combo is well worth a look!
