By Sheree Bochenek, Creative Director, Après Event Décor & Tent Rental

Whether you want luxury or natural, modern or traditional, this season’s most popular trends are an eclectic collection of appealing designs that will transform your event space and make your gathering unforgettable.


Event seating is headed in an exciting new direction with the emergence of the stainless-steel chair. Stackable and available in many styles, this chair lends modern luxury to any event space. All styles feature a variety of interchangeable seats in many colors and fabrics.


Designers have captured the beauty of Earth’s geo-physical textures to create the hottest look in linens. Whether patterns mimic volcanic, glacial, stone or wood, a variety of colors transform these natural textures, with metallics featured predominately.


The Poldina lamp from Zafferano is a modern take on restaurant table lamps from supper clubs of the past. Best of all, this is a rechargeable LED light, with a battery that lasts 9 hours. Standing 15” tall, the Poldina light is perfect for events, and is available in 6 colors. It is also available as a hanging light, or as a wall sconce.
