One of my favorite design elements for an event is the “Lounge”. Creating a lounge environment or lounge seating area allows guests the opportunity to sit, relax, chat, enjoy a cocktail and take in the ambiance whether the event is inside or out.
Creating a lounge space can be done many ways, from the simple DIY to the elaborate and over the top. If you are hosting an event at your home in your backyard and are a DIY’er…cover an old mattress (full or larger) with an amazing fabric, place throws and coordinating pillows in the center of the mattress, position like chairs opposite each of the four edges of the mattress with a small table and viola…instant lounge.
If you are throwing a big fancy soiree and want a more elaborate design, an event pro can design a look using drapery, daybeds, sofas, ottomans, cool chairs, coffee tables, end-tables and finish it off by adding table lamps, pillows, floral arrangements, serving trays and candles. The possibilities, configurations and décor styles are endless.
