Long summer evenings and breezy nights

The nights are longer, post-work drinks have become a regular occurrence and the events industry is starting to go crazy, it can only mean one thing… Summer is here. Velvet have been working on a series of Summer Looks for the coming months, with Velvet Living and Velvet Entertainment collaborating to offer the best of furniture, production and entertainment for your next summer event. Whether you are based in Surrey planning a private party or working on a corporate drinks reception in the Shard, our Summer look book offers one off pieces that can be mixed and matched with our extensive furniture, production and entertainment collections, or used collectively for a themed impact.

First up, we have Summer Solstice, think long British summer night, seaside breezes and late night fires. This look homes in on our quintessentially English White tongue and groove bar, great for a jug of Pimms or two, and opulent Rattan daybed, perfect for outdoor garden events whether you are in the UK or Cannes. Both furniture pieces are a part of our larger bar and rattan ranges making them excellent for high attendance events both corporate and private.

Adding a splash of colour to our collection, we have the Turquoise patterned cushions perfect for accessorising day beds and seating arrangements, the cool blue adds coastal vibes and texture, why not look at more of our accessories range for incorporating your summer colours?

A huge part of event success is created by ambience, we suggest adding Storm lanterns – great for creating pathways or as table centres, lighting areas as the sun sets. In keeping with the Summer Solstice theme, Velvet Entertainment have recommended The Movers a roaming, acoustic band with fun, upbeat covers of summer tunes that are sure to get your guest going!
