Sometimes in the event world we need to get our hold of furniture or decoration fast. As there is often a 4-6 week lead time on furniture, in this series we’re shining a spotlight on retailers who hold stock for immediate delivery. Commercial grade furniture is usually made to order. For event planners who need furniture for light use or a short duration, retailers aiming at the domestic market may be just the answer.
