Harvesting Innovation: Designing a Digital-Age Fall Event with CORT's Powered Products

There’s something captivating about the fall season. The change of weather, the way the colors of the landscape change so dramatically, and the new routines and patterns that take place at summer’s end make fall a meaningful time of year for so many people.

Fall is also a great time for events because it’s an ideal time to create an atmosphere that is both comfortable and captivating. The traditional elements that we associate with the season — vibrant foliage, cozy atmospheres, and comforting dishes — will always be a part of autumn events, but today’s technology also allows you to add new innovations that raise the level of guest experience while making sure your event fits the season’s charm.

It’s possible to embrace modern style and harness technology while developing an event that “feels like fall.” One of the most important elements of your contemporary autumn event is powered furniture. CORT's lineup of powered products allows you to bring elements of modern convenience and elegance to your fall event. These furniture pieces are both functional and aesthetically pleasing and, in this article, we’re going to explore CORT’s powered products and how you can incorporate them into your fall event.

Powering Up the Guest Experience

Technology is such a part of our everyday lives that we think we can’t do without it. Tech is so important that we often expect to be able to have charging capabilities everywhere, including at events. At your events, technology-enhanced event furniture can play a transformative role.

Including powered furniture like sofas and tables with built-in charging stations in your event design allows your attendees to stay connected while also enhancing their comfort. Powered furniture pieces with sleek designs and colors that complement your fall color palette allow you to achieve a seamless blend of form and function.

CORT’s Endless Powered Large Curve High Back Sofa with 2 Round Tables features a white vinyl material and powered capabilities. The neutral tones provide a blank slate for bringing in fall accent pieces, while the powered charging areas combine easy access to power with comfort and style. This sofa pairs well with the brown and white tones of the Montana Rug and the beige Corduroy Pillow as well as the multicolored feather pattern of the Plumes Pillow and the marbled top of the Thira Table

Lighting Up the Autumn Night

One of the things we associate with fall is earlier sunsets, and the longer nights that follow can contribute a magical backdrop to your autumn events. As the nights grow longer, lighting plays a key role in creating the right ambiance at your event. 

Lighting technology has given event planners more control than just an on-off switch. Utilizing smart lighting systems gives you the power to control color, brightness, and even patterns. You can develop a lighting plan that matches the lights to the warm tones of fall, or you can choose to create a contrast with cool tones that highlight specific spaces or activities at your event. Drapery also allows you to transform the space with the lighting.

Interactive Experiences

Technology allows you to create immersive, engaging experiences for your attendees that they’ll long remember. Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) can become exciting opportunities for entertainment and information. VR stations are great ways for guests to engage in virtual fall-themed activities, such as a haunted hayride or pumpkin patch exploration. Put AR to use to enhance physical elements at your event, from practical items like interactive food and drink menus to fun, decorative elements that come alive through a smartphone.

The right tables help you support these activities and experiences and bring them to life. Powered tables like the 10’ Powered Table, Wireless Charging Table or Lexington Powered Communal Cafe Table make it easy for you to harness technology in the most effective way.

Embracing the Fall Aesthetic

Just because you’re using the latest technology to raise the experience at your event doesn’t mean that you can’t take advantage of the traditional elements that make fall so special and unique. Fall events are some of the best opportunities to blend innovation and tradition, and here are some suggestions for how to make that sweet spot a reality.

Seasonal Décor

We always equate certain comfort food dishes and beverages with the fall season. A creative menu and the right appliances allow you to offer a twist on traditional dishes. You can even utilize a digital sommelier or artificial intelligence (AI)-powered bartending station to provide personalized drink recommendations or set up a link or app where attendees can order their drinks ahead of time.

However you create modern takes on fall classic drinks and comfort food, you’ll need powered bar space for caterers, bartenders, and attendees. CORT’s Midtown Powered Counter Circle and 30” Powered Bar Table are terrific options for a bar or lounge area.

How Will You Incorporate Technology Into Your Fall Event?
