Decor: Sitting Pretty

By Selena Fragassi


Table rounds and classroom setups are so … been there, done that. These four venues decided to get creative with their arrangements by designing true gathering spots where everyone wants to pull up a chair.

Chase Center
This riverfront venue in Wilmington, Delaware configures couches and lounge chairs into mini living room areas-all forward facing- where everyone can get comfortable for keynote speakers.

Elvis Presley's Graceland
For a recent conference reception, the Memphis mecca set up mini living rooms with "blue suede" accent lights on furniture, which was surrounded by 20 of the singer's famous automobiles.

University of Nevada, Las Vegas
The university's conference and events department has started utilizing square tables instead of rounds to create a polished look and also maximize seating capacity to fit in more people for larger events.

Willowdale Estate
For a recent wedding, this boutique venue in Topsfield, Massachusetts organized white sofas around a central platform where the bride and groom stood for the ceremony. The idea was to give everyone a perfect view, and an extra comfortable seat so they could enjoy the moment.
