Who we are


We have been notably making a name for ourselves as the suppliers of buzzworthy, signature hire items in the event scene. There’s something for every occasion, theme and venue. Our exciting hire collection of chairs, tableware and decorative accessories perfectly complements the lavish grandeur of castles or stately homes, the enduring charm of barns or the chic contemporary feel of city hotels.

We supply to event professionals producing high-profile corporate events, weddings and special occasions on behalf of trendsetters and tastemakers as well as private individuals across Scotland and beyond.

If you require our full design service, you can rest assured that our attention to detail will make your occasion something unforgettable. We love to showcase something unique for each event. Combining innovative trends with elegant design, we use everything that is special about you as a guide to deliver your ultimate event.

At Style In Detail, we also are keen to take the offerings of our local worldwide, making them more visible to our international clients. A small selection of these offerings is highlighted within our profiles page. From accommodation and transportation to all outside activities, food, drink, entertainment, stationary, souvenirs and other details of your special event, we are happy to connect you with dedicated service providers that can meet your specific requirements and cohesively do whatever it takes to make your event a stunning success.

Frequently asked questions

There is a minimum order value of £200 excl VAT for one of our vans/drivers to deliver an order.

Simply select the items you wish to use for your event using our online product selection and quote request form. We aim to provide you with a quote within 48 hours of receiving your request. Please fill out our enquiry form if you would like to visit our showroom to view the items first or to discuss a quote for our design and set-up service.

We require a 50% non-refundable deposit to secure your booking and reserve the items you have selected for your event. For bookings that are less than £500 excl VAT or bookings with less than 4 weeks to go, we will require the balance in full as well as a refundable security deposit.

All our prices are for dry hire only with delivery and collection to your venue arranged through us. Your event manager or caterer will set up the items on your behalf. We are happy to offer you a quote for a full design and set-up service. Please enquire for more details.

We accept payments by bank transfer using the bank details given on your invoice. Cheques are only accepted by prior arrangement. A fee will be charged if cheques presented to us as payment are returned by the bank.

Please let us know as soon as you think you might need to increase or decrease the quantities of hire items you have reserved as per your hire invoice. We recommend paying the deposit on the maximum number of guests you are anticipating with an allowance for a few spares as the items might be fully booked when you need them.

We allow revisions no less than four weeks before the actual date of your event that are no less than your 50% non-refundable deposit. Please note this deposit only applies to those items that have been held for you and is non-transferable to other items not detailed in the invoice.

We have a standard 3-day rental period. This includes the day before your event through to the day after your event. There is a surcharge if your hire extends beyond this time. Please contact us if you require us to extend your hire.

Full payment, including a refundable deposit, must be made before your hire items are released. Delivery and collection is quoted from our warehouse to your venue or specified destination. Normal delivery charges per mile apply between 10am and 5pm. There is an additional charge for delivery outside of these hours.

All deliveries and collections are made to the ground level entrance unless pre-arranged. Please let us know in advance if the hire items need to be taken to a specific room or if there are any parking restrictions that we need to be aware of. We reserve the right to pass on to you the costs of fines incurred due to delivery/collection instructions which neglect or ignore parking restrictions.

It is the hirer’s responsibility to ensure that necessary protective covering for the floors and walls is in place before we arrive on site for both delivery and collection.

Please let us know the name of your representative who will receive the goods on delivery and sign on your behalf. Once signed for, the hirer is responsible for hire items even if the items are delivered to a 3rd party. We are unable to deliver hire items without your appointed representative on site. Additional charges apply where we have to re-deliver due to the absence of your representative or if the driver is unduly delayed or detained while attempting to effect delivery or collection.

Style In Detail is not insured to move a third party’s furniture. If the hirer requests the delivery crew to help with this, prior authorisation will have to be given and under no circumstances would Style In Detail be held responsible for any damages that may occur as a result.

All hire items will be delivered clean and ready to use. Cutlery, glassware, china, tablecentres and décor are delivered in appropriate packaging which is clean and ready to use. Chairs are delivered in stacks of 5 or 8 with cushions supplied separately where appropriate. Upholstered chairs are delivered with foam inserts between the chairs. Please ensure all packaging is available on collection. Please note that fold lines in tablecloths are unavoidable.

Please notify us of any queries on goods received immediately. In the unlikely event that you are unhappy with an item’s quality, please photograph it and inform us before use. We will not issue a refund for an item you are unhappy with if you inform us after it has been used.

All orders are delivered and collected during weekdays between 10am and 5pm. Deliveries and collections on weekends are subject to additional charges. In some cases, we can provide a guaranteed before 12pm delivery slot subject to an additional charge. We regret that we cannot refund any unfulfilled delivery that is caused by circumstances beyond our control, such as bad weather or heavy traffic. Additional charges will apply where we are required to redeliver if the client’s representative is unavailable to sign for the items on our initial attempt.

We do allow our regular clients to collect smaller quantities of hire items with lower replacement value from our showroom at 32 Ashgrove Road by appointment. Please note that it is the client’s responsibility to send a vehicle that is suitably sized to fit the items in. Self-collections are made with higher security deposits.

Our items are not suitable for overnight couriers or for posting.

We charge 25% of the rental fee to professionally clean dinnerware/cutlery and glassware. In addition to this we do require all cutlery to be rinsed to remove food residue after use. Food left to dry on cutlery can damage the items, resulting in replacement charges. Scourers or abrasives should not be used on any hired item. If you are unable to rinse the cutlery, please talk to us about the option of a late-night collection and rinse fee at an additional cost.

Please ensure that table linen, seat pads and cushions are not returned or stored damp or wet. Damage resulting from mildew, coloured wax, burn marks, ink, clarified butter or other stains that cannot be laundered will be charged at full replacement cost.

Candelabras, candleholders and lanterns are hired for use only with LED candles or drip-free candles with candle plates where possible. Please contact us if you require help sourcing any of the above. We charge a cleaning fee for wax deposits on candelabras and a replacement fee for any damage resulting from wax deposits or removal.

Please note that our candelabras are unsuitable for use with floral arrangements unless expressly stated on your invoice.

The hired item is solely intended for indoor use and storage unless specifically designed, manufactured for outdoor use and expressly stated in the hire contract. The hirer is fully responsible for damage caused by weather or any outdoor hazard if hired items are used or stored outdoors.

We take a refundable security deposit ahead of the event date in case of any breakages or missing items. The amount will vary depending on the items being hired and the quantities of those items. The deposit is returned less the replacement cost of breakages or losses after the hired items have been checked by authorised staff at Style In Detail premises. Where the deposit is not sufficient to cover the replacement cost, the hirer is liable for the balance. We will issue you with an invoice which is payable on demand.

The hirer is fully responsible for the hired items and for insuring the item if necessary, from the time of acceptance until it is returned to our premises. No insurance is provided by Style In Detail.

Samples of our hire items are available to view within our showroom at 32 Ashgrove Road Aberdeen. We encourage you to make an appointment for viewing and styling consultations.

We deliver for events within and outside Scotland.

We ask that our items are re-packed as they were delivered in the Style In Detail crates or boxes provided. A charge will be applied for lost or damaged crates, boxes or cartons. The containers should be left in the same place where the goods were delivered to ready for our drivers or couriers to collect. Please note that drivers and couriers do not count individual items and will assume all the items have been packed correctly. They are only authorised to check that the correct number of containers are available for collection. A detailed count and inspection of your order takes place in our warehouse once we receive your order back.
