An evening of Mystical Mayhem at the Royal Horticultural Halls

January 23rd, 2014

 

 

Spaceworks and Well Dressed Tables supported the Royal Horticultural Halls, creating a bespoke interior setting at the venue showcase event in London.

 

As the venue’s preferred supplier for furniture, the interiors specialists helped to create a memorable experience for guests within the stunning backdrop of the iconic Lindley Hall.  The event’s central theme of mystical mayhem ensued, as the evening’s entertainment included an array of magical tricks, aerial trapeze artists, manicurists, card tricks, indulgent street food canapés and cocktails. 

Spaceworks was required to capture the theme of the showcase in line with the organiser’s ambitions to emphasise the flexibility of the venue and the diverse range of events it can cater for.  A neutral colour scheme was implemented to emphasise the venues in-house lighting capabilities, which was a key element of the evening’s entertainment. 

 

Kelly Baker, sales director at Spaceworks and Well Dressed Tables, said:  “The Chesterfield range of sofas and armchairs are a perfect combination of comfort and style; we used these alongside white and black bubble footstools, white poseur tables and white button stools. 

 

“In line with the event’s theme we supplemented these classic ranges with an unusual finishing touch. LED furniture is one of the upcoming trends in 2014 and we installed a bar with pink LED lights that took centre stage at the showcase.

“Well Dressed Tables supported the event caterer Richmond with crockery, cutlery and glassware that best complemented its creative street food themed menu. They required funky and versatile products to serve up drinks, desserts and appetisers; this included the new Winged bowlsand Cubix glassware range.”

 

Natalie Searle, marketing and projects manager at Royal Horticultural Halls, said:  “Spaceworks helped capture the atmosphere perfectly and Kelly was instrumental in delivering such a successful showcase of the venue. From initial meetings it was clear that Kelly was able to visualise our ambitions. She worked closely with us to choose a colour scheme and she suggested furniture that best suited our theme and budget.  The smooth installation and collection of furniture at the event was commendable.
