Thorns joins official suppliers as Londonlaunch goes live

12th October 2010

Stunning furniture collections from Thorns Group will be adorning Chelsea’s ultra-cool Saatchi Gallery later this month when the company joins official suppliers to the exciting new Londonlaunch:live.

The group – the UK’s leading independent furniture and catering equipment hire specialist – will be providing items across the exclusive venue for the two-day, invitation-only gathering, taking place on October 20 and 21.

Thorns, which is a key player in the events, exhibitions and conference sectors, has been appointed official furniture supplier. Its equipment will form part of the dazzling backdrop as 1,500 of the most influential decision makers from the UK’s events sector join together for what organisers describe as “an exhibition, meet-the-buyer, networking and educational event all rolled into one”.

Londonlaunch:live promises a unique concept where event planners and organisers can meet the most exciting suppliers. It builds on the longstanding and successful brand of Londonlaunch, which over the past decade has established a thriving event-related community of thousands of buyers and their suppliers.

Specific furniture ranges to be supplied by Thorns will include its ever-popular Vision cube seating, stylish Lorenzo leather chairs, classic three-seater Chesterfield sofas and ultra-modern Jupiter poseur tables.

The group’s furniture will reflect the specific areas of London represented by the show – including a dressed banqueting table to echo a night out in the West End; sleek, modern ranges to mirror the contemporary feel of Canary Wharf; and outdoor furniture to represent the lively outdoor dining available along the bustling South Bank.

Thorns is also providing furniture for Londonlaunch:live’s exclusive Mayor’s lunch, which will feature guest-of-honour Boris Johnson.

Clair Whitecross, Thorns’ Group Sales Director, said: “Thorns Group enjoys a long-established reputation for introducing stylish and innovative ranges of furniture and catering equipment. Londonlaunch:live at Chelsea’s Saatchi Gallery provides the perfect opportunity for us to bring items from our stunning portfolio of products to the attention of new and existing clients.”
