Illuminated furniture provides a unique touch for any event, large or small …Tara Mesiti tells us more.





Where did the idea come from to bring Illuminated Event Hire to PMQ? A good friend of mine has been heavily involved in developing the Illuminated products up in Brisbane. After being focused on the major cities, they wanted to get things moving in Port Macquarie and cover the Mid North Coast.

It felt like the perfect combination, because I have a business development background and my husband is involved in festivals and events. When we saw the furniture and how it worked, we had no hesitation about wanting to be involved.

Your products are unique to those of other hire companies. Tell us about your range? Basically, we have a range of furniture that lights up. Illuminated furniture is powered by lithium batteries; our exclusive light units last for over 24 hours and recharge in a matter of hours. The sleek remote control gives 15 different colour options and 4 different strobe and pulse effects.

Our furniture includes open and closed cubes, bar leaners and stools, complete bars, DJ consoles, snack bars, ottomans, benches and of course, our wedding range of banquet and dining tables with matching Crystal Tiffany chairs.

We also have event flooring in different colours for outdoor events. The team at Illuminated Industries are always coming up with new concepts.

Mid year we are expecting LED dance floors, where you can run video and images through them. We have had a sneak peek, and they look amazing.

Last but not least, the furniture is Australian made and designed. It’s also environmentally friendly, as we can recycle it into another piece of furniture when it gets wear and tear.

What sort of events and functions would Illuminated products suit? It suits any type of event or function. From backyard parties to poolside cocktail nights, outdoor festivals, dance parties, nightclubs, gala dinners and weddings.

We can cater for a small party, right up to events for a few thousand. We deliver, set up and pack down for our customers as well. To celebrate the opening of our new business, we are offering discounts on all bookings throughout May.

What events have you been at most recently? We recently did Icehouse and the Ministry of Sound dance party at Port Panthers. We also did the Star FM Single Mingle party at Town Green Inn. We’ll be in Coffs Harbour for a big wedding at C.ex, and we’ll be on display at the wedding expo at Port Panthers in May, so please come and say hello.
