Hey CLE, have you heard? Four separate event rental companies – All Occasions Party Rental, Marbella Event Furniture & Decor Rental, AAble Rents and L’Nique Specialty Linen Rental – have teamed up to open a new, one-of-a-kind collaboration in the heart of downtown Cleveland: the Design Event Center @ 1717.

Located at the corner of East Ninth Street and Walnut Avenue in downtown Cleveland, the 6,000 square foot showroom features products from each of the four companies including beautiful tablescapes, event furniture, tenting design center, specialty linen samples, custom branding for events and more. With the array of products and services offered by each company, the new space provides the event professional with the unique opportunity of seamless planning process in Northeast Ohio.

For L’Nique’s co-owners/co-founders Angela and Deidre, they know the collaboration allows their company to continue doing what it does best.  “We are proud of staying ‘in our lane’ throughout the 20 year history of our specialty linen company,” said Angela. “As product quality and customer service have always been at the forefront of our business, it is always important to us to work with like-minded organizations. By teaming up with these other three amazing companies, we pool our resources all into the same space, leading to a smoother, more efficient experience for our clients. They still get the excellent products and customer service they are accustomed to – just now in the same location!”

The companies that make up of the Design Event Center @ 1717 welcomed the events community of Greater Cleveland to discover what “intentionally different” means to them during a grand opening event last month. With beautiful floral arrangements by Plantscaping and Blooms and catering by Gitta’s Table and Thyme Catering, guests came to realize just what a vital event planning resource this new showroom space would be!  Dale McDonald Photographer captured some of the highlights of the event — scroll down to see them all for yourself!
