Style Spotlight: 2024 Event Design Trends & Rental Picks
Stepping into 2024 unveils a rich tapestry of trends, offering a vibrant spectrum of experiences for those aspiring to host truly unforgettable events. From the luxurious opulence of maximalism to the delightful charm of Coquette aesthetics, this year’s trends push the boundaries of imagination. Whether you’re keen on fully embracing these trends in your event design or taking a more subdued approach, we’ve curated our favorite forecasted design ideas and rental picks sure to inspire and transform your events into something extraordinary.
In contrast to the minimalist trends of recent years, 2024 sees a resurgence of maximalism. Bold colors, intricate patterns, and an abundance of textures characterize this trend, creating spaces that are vibrant and full of life. To infuse this trend in your design, experiment with daring palettes, such as pairing jewel tones with gold accents or mixing contrasting hues like emerald green and blush pink for a bold yet harmonious effect. When it comes to florals, think beyond the ordinary and opt for statement-making blooms. Large, vibrant flowers like peonies, dahlias, and tropical blossoms add a touch of glamour and playfulness to your décor.
Maximalist decor encourages layering and mixing styles, resulting in eclectic and visually stimulating environments. Consider choosing 2 different patterned linens with the same color scheme and alternate across your tables. A great example of this is using our Marilla Marine linen with Reverie Social’s Patchwork Seabreeze linen to create a bold and eclectic vibe. It’s a departure from the restrained aesthetic, inviting guests to revel in the richness of design and indulge in the beauty of excess. Mixing styles doesn’t just stop at table linens. Layer different China pieces like our Finezza Cream Charger and Frances Azure Floral Dinner Plate to make a statement at your dining tables.
Bold Hues & Joyful Aesthetics
In a world that often craves positivity and joy, event planners are embracing dopamine décor to create spaces that radiate happiness. Think vibrant color palettes, playful patterns, and interactive elements that stimulate the senses. Incorporate bold hues like sunshine yellow, 2024 Wedding Color of the Year Marseille Blue, and lively coral to instantly uplift the mood. A great way to incorporate this trend is to create a colorful cocktail hour setup that also acts as a photo op. Start with our customizable White Versa Bar and add a vibrant inlay featuring a custom monogram, pattern or photo. Fill your back bar with varying colors of glassware like our Fenton Amber Goblet or Debutante Blue Goblet to add that extra touch of color. Adding features like interactive art installations, mood-enhancing lighting, ornate floral installations and whimsical décor elements can turn any event into visual work of art.
Drawing inspiration from fairy tales and magical realms, the whimsical wonderland décor style is your ticket to hosting an event that feels straight out of a storybook. Picture oversized flowers blooming around, floating candles casting a mystical glow, and lighting that turns the venue into a captivating otherworldly space. To sprinkle a bit of Wonderland magic into your event design, consider rentals like our Antique SS Flatware, the Debutante Grey Goblet, and the Glass Aztec Silver Charger. These smokey-toned tabletop essentials are the key to unlocking the whimsical vibes. Now, surround them with bursts of vibrant red, purple, and pink florals – because who says reality can’t be a dreamlike destination?
Bringing the outdoors in is a timeless trend that continues to evolve in 2024. Nature-inspired décor is about more than just floral arrangements; it’s about creating immersive environments that transport guests to serene landscapes. Incorporate organic materials like wood, rattan, and stone, embrace earthy color palettes which include green, brown, terracotta, and lavender, and introduce botanical elements such as hanging gardens or moss-covered walls. Our favorite way to bring this trend to life is through dining tables and chairs like our Walnut Farm Table, Margaux Natural Chair, and Sven Wishbone Natural Chair. These pieces bring in a natural wood element that can act as a base for your tablescape design and can be paired seamlessly with earthy tones and metallic accents. This trend not only enhances aesthetics but also promotes a sense of tranquility and connection to the natural world.
Organically Shaped Décor
2024 witnesses a departure from rigid lines and structured designs as event planners embrace the organic shapes and fluid forms trend. Inspired by nature, this design aesthetic introduces curves, asymmetry, and flowing lines to create a sense of movement and harmony. From curved furniture like our Raelyn Lux Sage Back Bar and Fiona Ivory Velvet Sofa to undulating floral arrangements, organic shapes infuse events with a softer, more natural feel. Incorporating elements like free-form installations, organic backdrops, and irregular seating arrangements, this trend fosters an environment that feels both comforting and contemporary.
In 2024, the monochromatic decor trend is all about simplicity and sophistication. Whether you choose classic neutrals for timeless elegance or bold hues for a touch of drama, the key is using varying shades within a single color family. Whites and soft grays create a serene ambiance, while pops of complementary colors or metallic accents add flair. Embrace texture to prevent the design from feeling flat by including cut glassware like our Colby Cut Crystal Stemware and Timeless Stemware, or textured linens like our Ibiza White, and let the monochromatic palette elevate your event with a modern, cohesive, and effortlessly stylish aesthetic.
The Coquette aesthetic emerges as a flirtatious and playful approach to creating captivating atmospheres. This style enchants with a dreamy pastel palette, featuring blush pinks, mint greens, and powder blues, evoking a sense of light-hearted romance. Flowers become protagonists, with wild and cascading arrangements contributing to the overall playfulness. Feminine details, from lacy table runners to elegant drapery, add delicacy and refinement, while vintage accents like antique mirrors, silky bows, and lace doilies infuse a nostalgic touch. Bring this nostalgic trend to your design with our Seagrass Aloe or Evelyn Grey linens as your base and accent with a simple napkin in a bow fold.
In the dynamic realm of 2024 event design, the Quiet Luxury Decor Aesthetic emerges as a symbol of refined simplicity and understated opulence. Defined by a neutral color palette and luxurious textures like velvet and satin, this aesthetic relies on a minimalist approach with clean lines and purposeful details. The careful curation of bespoke furnishings and subdued lighting creates an environment of unparalleled refinement. If you cannot find the perfect venue for your event, consider creating your own with a PEAK Tent! Imagine your guests entering a beautiful Sailcloth Tent with a simple tabletop design that has thoughtful elements without being over the top. In a world where less is more, the Quiet Luxury trend invites attendees to appreciate the art of restraint and the beauty found in the simplicity of sophisticated tranquility, promising an event experience that speaks volumes through understated elegance.
In the ever-evolving realm of event design, 2024 stands out as a year of boundless creativity and bold statements. From the grandeur of maximalism to the flirtatious charm of Coquette aesthetics, each trend offers a distinct palette for event planners and hosts to paint their stories upon. As you embark on your event planning journey, remember that these trends are not just styles; they’re opportunities to create immersive experiences that resonate with your guests. So, embrace the trends, infuse your unique touch, and let 2024 be the year your events become legendary!
