With a new year comes the new event season! Hosting events can be extremely stressful and a logistical nightmare. From generating guest lists, selecting a venue and picking a caterer, all of these tasks can take the fun out of the planning process.

With CORT as your event partner, you can create fun, customized looks for your clients that will leave them in awe! Create captivating, engaging and immersive environments with everything from comfortable sofas to colorful ottomans and geometric shelving.
Some considerations as you embark on your next function include:
Color vs. Neutral Palette

If you are a fan of HGTV, you undoubtedly are aware that neutral is in when it comes to designing your home. The same could apply to your event design. If neutral is the palette for you, consider integrating gray into your space design. The color is not only classic, but incredibly versatile, easily transitioning from glamorous to a more casual look, and blends seamlessly with just about every color including yellow, pink, red, purple, teal blue and more!
If looking to make more of a splash at your next event, then there is no denying that incorporating color to your design scheme is a must. Not only does it add personality to a space, but the effective use of color can transition your space from ordinary to extraordinary! Corporate events are a great venue to showcase your client’s personality and brand. Scatter CORT’s Marche Ottomans and Pillows in your company logo colors throughout the space to brand the event!

The days of traditional, uncomfortable group seating are over! This year, make a bold statement with creative seating arrangements. Utilize seating like CORT’s White Meeting Chairs in your plan to offer attendees versatile, modern frames in sleek, white vinyl fabric -- perfect for panel discussions, stage settings or large meetings. Mix and match seating styles to keep things fresh and fun, and incorporate community seating arrangements to help spark conversations and foster networking opportunities among your guests!
Glamming it Up!

Fabrics and accessories aren’t the only ways you can add sparkle and shine to your event venue. CORT’s new Alondra Tables, a contemporary, geometric chrome-based cocktail table with a glass top and the stylish rose gold finishes of the Hayworth Tables, offer qualities to suit any design concept. In addition, the Alondra tables are also available with marble or wood tops to add flair and warmth with mixed materials.

Lastly, don’t skimp on the finishing touches to pull your event design together or people will be talking about your event forever, and not for a good reason. Pillows are a great way to add a splash of color or brand a business event, as well as offer a great way to add texture to a space. Also, consider using creative shelving to highlight your offerings. CORT’s new Geometric Shelf is a great way to display products and provides a place for guests to rest their drinks during the event. CORT also offers a line of realistic greenery and modern dividers to help you define spaces and create beautiful backdrops for your event space!
No matter what path you embark on, the key is to start with one thing at a time and build on that plan. A good place to start is identifying the theme or color palette and then, by working with event partners such as CORT, you can begin laying out all of the other details that will lead you to a successful, productive event.
