A MARKYATE business provided glitz and glamour to Sky’s Oscars coverage on Sunday (24) as their boutique furniture featured in the studio broadcast.
The news channel’s showbiz team in Brentford created a replica of the pool area at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel for their report on the awards and requested Rio Lounge’s designs.
Jo Morris, director of the furniture company, said she was looking forward to seeing the chosen pieces on television with host Alex Zane.
Rio Lounge has also provided chairs and seats for TV programme The Only Way is Essex and the Twilight premiere.
The Oscars saw Daniel Day Lewis become the first man to win the Best Actor gong three times.
