Bulrush chairs: style and craftwork at an event

16 September, 2014 Events 0 Comments

The bulrush chair is an element of decoration that gives robustness, commodity, country and natural airs. Its regular use is in exterior events, that don’t have to be associated to a flamenco style. This way, Goyo Catering has bolstered them, providing a different and special touch that also reminds past days.

A bulrush chair is pure. It is a simplicity that adds to the overall impression and that not only it may be used to compliment the table set up but also reinforces a natural environment, fusing with the ground and trees, in a landscape not ‘contaminated’ at all.

As for the tables, craftwork can gain relevance adding to the typical bulrush chairs, clay plates. Again, simple and pure, it makes the event very characteristic. Decorated with wild plants, these tables become a tribute to the rural and country world.

Origin of bulrush chairs

Bulrush chairs come from a plant that grows at lakes, being of prime material, completely natural and ecologic. They represent a rural life and throughout the years have become associated to folklore. In Andalusia, they are usually painted with a variety of bright colours and it is then when they remind of flamenco. But the bulrush chair in its natural colour is countryside, nature and simplicity, very much to consider for a wedding or any other event with these characteristics.
