GL events offers an extensive range of event furniture for hire in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban for any type of event you are hosting.

Whether you’re planning an indoor or outdoor event, we have the quantity, quality and variety of rental furniture to suit any occasion – including weddings, special birthdays, corporate events, product launches, year-end functions, festivals and more.

Furniture rental advice for your next event

Being spoilt for choice is great, but can also be overwhelming. Every occasion is different and would require different types of rental event furniture, décor, flooring, lighting and other event furnishings. Making use of GL events’ turnkey event solutions means having a team of professionals on hand to give you free, personalised advice on the best rental furniture for your event and sector. 

We can help you determine the theme and ambience of your special event, which event furniture and décor you’ll need to hire and take every possible step to make your vision come alive. A mixture of cocktail tables and chairs, for instance, will allow your guests to mingle before an event. Formal dinner table settings on the other hand would be best suited for wedding receptions and gala events, while couches are great for less formal events where guests can sit back and relax. 

Types of furnishing for hire

Once you’ve decided which items you need for your event, you can browse through GL events’ impressive indoor and outdoor furniture inventory, as well as other furnishings that are aesthetically pleasing.


Create the specific ambience you want for your event and make guests feel at home with GL events’ extensive range of cocktail, dinner, café or lounge furniture, which includes a variety of tables, chairs, couches, bar stools and even bean bags!

Lighting & electrical

Use lighting for visual effect and to draw your guests' attention. Create a dramatic effect at any occasion, including weddings, parties, galas, and award shows. Spotlights, up-lights and coloured effects are also a nice add-on to liven up any event. We stock a wide range of elegant chandeliers, stylish standing lamps, LED ottomans and more. Rental lighting and electrical items such as distribution boards include professional installation and breakdown.




Often overlooked, flooring is an extremely important facet of any event. However, good planning and perfectly installed flooring is essential, particularly when it comes to the safety of your guests. GL events has a vast variety of colours to suit your event needs, including carpet tiles, rolled carpets, supawood finishes and various forms of laminates.


Accessories set the stage for your special event. Depending on the type of occasion, we have a spectacular range of high-quality accessories – including ornate ice buckets and stands, attractive comfy scatter cushions, state-of-the-art gas or electric heaters, fans and air conditioners, as well as room dividers and mirrors to add that special, intimate touch.
