As the seasons change, so should your event design. As you plan events through the end of the year, incorporating new fabric trends can make your event feel sophisticated, inviting and exciting. Consider fabrics that are simple and elegant, personal and tactile, or refreshingly colorful and creative. Whatever inspiration you take, CORT Events can help you create an event that is memorable and timeless.
· Simple and Elegant: It doesn’t have to be complicated or over-the-top to be beautiful. Take your event concept back to basics to create a refined and welcoming feel. For fall, botanical themes continue to be elegant and popular. This season, incorporate natural textures and greenery into your execution to make them feel elevated. Pair with mixed minimalism that blends wood and metal for furnishings, like the Lexington Table, that anchor your room. Metallic gold accents pair effortlessly and transform a simple event space into a chic and curated gathering place.
· Personal and Tactile: For events that seek to wow, bring on the drama with fabrics centered around fun event trends. The Art Deco trend reminds attendees of the Golden Age and creates a whimsical escape. To pull off this theme, create an event with luxe designs, metallic finishes and dramatic colors. Deep blues, greens and reds pair beautifully with metallics. Geometric patterns lend a feeling of luxury and sophistication. Consider incorporating furniture that glints and sparkles, like the Alondra Cocktail Table, and pairing with these thematic fabrics.
Use velvet to create inviting spaces for guests, no matter the occasion. Mix marbles and dress up classics, such as a Wilshire Sofa, with eccentric touches like Garbo Stools. Cozy up on faux fur rugs and pair with metallic accents to create an ambiance with a warm glow that feels refined and inviting.
· Colorful and Creative: White everything is out--and not just because it’s past Labor Day! Color is having a moment this year and there are many surprising and delightful color palettes that are popular in events and weddings for 2018. Soft shades of Gray are everywhere. Black adds interest and depth to hints of Blush as well as the classic Black, White and Gold palettes.
Other sultry color pairings include: Gold, Burgundy and Navy, and Dusty Blue and Deep Red, as well as Navy Blue and Mink. Blush and Rose Gold or Dusty Rose and Greenery make for a light-hearted and romantic feel, as do Mauve and Navy Blue. Champagne and Bordeaux create a wine-colored palette that feels refined.
For a classic fall feel, use Danish modern pieces that complement autumnal hues like deep purple, warm yellows and spicy oranges. Don’t be afraid to mix trends in with a traditional autumnal feel. Keep these fabric trends in mind while planning events for fall to stay on trend and create inspired and welcoming spaces that make your gathering the event of the season!
