Why/how did Valiant Events start?

“Unknown to many, there is a lot of history behind Valiant Events. It is a story of growth and opportunity.

Founder Frank Griff, at the young age of 19, established the company in the early half of the 1900’s. An immigrant seeking opportunity as a merchant in Broken Hill, he started “Frank Griff – General Furnisher & Importer,” where he sold a variety of goods, including furniture.

Growth and opportunity led Frank to relocate the business to Sydney where the company evolved into “Griffs House,” with a prime location on Pitt Street. Think eight floors of residential and office furniture! Early mid-century, the company evolved once more, and then “Valiant” was born.

Opportunity knocked again in the early 1980’s when Valiant noticed the growing need for event hire furniture in Sydney, thus developing the company’s first event hire range.

Valiant Events is one of the most trusted leaders in event furniture hire and styling in Australia, with complete teams in Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne.

To this day, the company continues to be owned and operated by Frank Griff’s family.”

What's the best thing about your job?

“We love the challenge of creating fresh and new event styling concepts for our clients.

We love the natural high we get from successfully bringing events to life - from creating unique styling concepts for our clients to transforming an event space into something beautiful, breath-taking, and inspiring.”

What is your styling philosophy?

“Customisation is key. Our approach to styling is unique: we believe that each event should embody the person, group or organization in which it represents and celebrates.

Styling is a powerful layer that can influence the experience of a space, helping to create emotive and memorable moments for attendees. There is nothing better than coming together and celebrating in style.”

You’re a new addition to the crayon box: what colour would you be, and why?

Magenta. It is fresh, fun and has undeniable impact and punch. It is not afraid to be noticed and stand out from the crayon crowd!


What has been some of Valiant Events' favourite recent projects worked on?

"Our Brisbane team shone bright at the Winter Racing Carnival, where they transformed and customised four marquees at the Brisbane Racing Club Doomben Racecourse: a Japanese garden-inspired design for the Kirin marquee, moody cigar club vibes for Sportsbet, fresh Parisian chic for CrownBet, and a sophisticated garden courtyard for UBet. Extra special moments included Edison bulbs suspended from architectural wooden trees, paper lantern bar backs, luxe velvet armchairs, birdcage-inspired exteriors, and tranquil bonsai green interiors.

Our Sydney team recently collaborated with Zena Bechara’s Make Up Masterclass with Ariel Tejada (Kylie Jenner’s makeup artist.) We styled the VIP area in a stunning contrast of blush and black with rich velvet textures, metallic finishes, and marble-top tables. Guests were beside themselves scoring gift bags from the Valiant Gifting suite!

Our Melbourne team gave their showroom a gorgeous makeover to showcase their styling flair and the freshest pieces from Valiant Events and interior inspiration from our Property Styling division. From neon lights to breezeblocks, a full house fit-out, and Parisian curb-side moments to celebrate our newest collection Brasserie, it’s a must-see. Client are raving about the new look!"
