Many couples come to us with their perfect wedding in mind – whether it be overlooking the ocean, something with sand between your toes or a blank canvas for us to help design, we are here to help you achieve your wedding dreams.
Most importantly, let’s start with the ceremony. While it may not last long, many couples want to go with something other than standard folding chairs but also need to stay on budget. That said, consider using ottomans and/or benches which can then be repurposed for the reception. Or simply use all of your reception lounge furniture in one direction and then turn it around into assorted vignettes for the reception.
You can also mix and match styles. For example, you may be lookingt to create a rustic feel in vineyard but love mid-century styles. Here we mixed white leather pieces from multiple collections such as barcelona chiars and loveseats to create two unique looks.
Below are pictures from a castle wedding where the couple wanted to incorporate boho elements such as rugs, velvets and rattan.
Whatever you choose, make sure it reflects your couple style.

Over the last couple of years, we have seen the trend in corporate conferences change from boring theater style seating with a dull stage and podium to comfortable lounge furniture ranging from sofas and chairs to bean bags. The stage designs have even had a facelift as well. Adding interactive backdrops, 3D elements, and a visually captivating look that keeps the attention of the audience more engaged with the overall program.
DESIGNER8* has plenty of different collections that work for all types of conferences ranging from Modern to Mid-Century Modern to traditional, the list goes on. Not only do we have the different styles, but our depth of inventory can also fulfill the orders to comfortably seat hundreds or thousands of guests at any given time.
Along with lounge seating, mixing in other elements such as coffee tables, side tables, rugs and even pillow accents will leave your guests forgetting that they are sitting in an all-day conference.

When planning an event or meeting, one of the hardest parts can be accommodating your attendees in the most engaging way. Dividing the room and determining the needs of your attendees and their traffic flow through their event space is one of the most important decisions for an event planner. Traditional layouts have their place and can often maximize the room capacity, but if you are willing to experiment you can use new and more creative formats to maximize your event space footprint. Choosing the right layout is important because it can change the overall guest experience at your event. It also sets the stage for your events overall theme and flow. Whether it is to increase engagement in a meeting setting or encourage separate private conversations, the room layout truly sets the stage.
Cocktail tables are a great way to separate space. Usually found around a bar encouraging socializing and a table to use to set food and beverage on, cocktail tables are also a great way to maximize your overall footprint and stimulate socialization amongst your guests. By placing cocktail tables in smaller corners or dead spaces of your event will also draw your attendees to these spaces and allow them to spread out and congregate.
Benches are a great way to maximize seating for your guests. Perfect for any occasion, whether for a wedding reception or premiere after party, benches have a smaller footprint than most sofas and can accommodate seating on all sides. Benches can also be placed against a wall with coffee or side tables for guests to lounge, eat and socialize comfortably in a more casual way than standard table chair seating.
