Posted: 9.21.12

Furniture isn’t just about a place to sit anymore. It’s morphed into a major design element for meetings and events. Today, furniture falls into line with styles, textures and colors that play right into the design palette.

So what’s vogue for Fall 2012? Rich textures and patterns. It doesn’t matter what patterned item you choose, as long as it makes a statement! This season is not about one key color, but rather contrast and combinations.

The fall color palette is rich with purple, tangerine, ultramarine green and espresso; contrast with vivid hues of harvest gold, teal and turquoise. It’s time to go bold!

Five Trending Event Styles for Fall:
