When designing an event it is important to think about how you would like it to be furnished. The style and type of furniture chosen will largely be dictated by a number of factors including the theme, the time of year the event is taking place and whether it is a sit-down dinner or cocktail reception. At The Events Mill we are always thinking about innovation and work with different suppliers to create unique design concepts, including many fabulous furniture suppliers. As the nights draw in here is our choice of event furniture to warm those cold winter nights, selected from some of our favourite suppliers:

This Charlene armchair equipped with a gold velvet cushion is the ultimate in winter chic, supplied by the ever wonderful Great Hire.


With a dark, rustic frame it offers a forgotten charm and takes us back to a bygone era. If you love tradition this chair is the one for you.

The Suzanna sofa is perfect for festive events. While it has a traditional charm, the velvet provides a contemporary edge.


This perfect sofa is large enough for four to six people – it could grace any style of event, making guests wish they owned one and green with envy!

Another treasure from Great Hire is this café puzzle table.


The bronze and shagreen colours create a decidedly antique feel while the table leg design offers a modern twist. The perfect style item for cocktail parties or as a side table for a chic dining experience.

Lose yourself in this comfortable velvet armchair perfect for sipping cocktails and champagne until the early hours. With grey being this season’s colour of choice you can be sure your event is a fashionable one. This number can be sourced via Velvet Living.


These red velvet stools, by Furniture on The move, do not shy away from tradition and given their size and shape would work well in even the smallest of spaces.


The bright ruby red cushions are particularly festive with a hint of Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer!

These gold and red chairs by Options Hire look stunning at any sit-down dinner or wedding ceremony and the velvet cushions are enough to warm anyone’s heart. There is nothing plain about this chair, it oozes decadence – gone are the days of chair covers!


This Cognac dining table is the ultimate in modern chic. The striking table legs create impact and the glass table top provides a simple, minimalist look – no need for tablecloths here! A wonderful addition to the Great Hire portfolio.

This high back Louis III oak chair would add regal charm to any top table and warm even the coldest of spaces – think rambling old houses and castles fit for lords and ladies. With intricate detailing, this chair is a truly unique design. For more antique-inspired designs head over to Farley Hire.


A new option from Great Hire, this gold and red velvet covered stool provides the perfect informal seating for a cocktail reception.


The colours work together in a display of opulence and its shape makes it ideal for walkways, windows and narrow spaces.

This ottoman stool would work really well with a shabby chic theme and could sit along other quirky items for that trendy mismatched look. The floral chair cover provides comfort and adds a bespoke finish. You could even store a few blankets inside for when the temperature really drops! Farley has it all!
