As the clock ticks closer and closer to 2011, I thought I’d reflect a little on some of the projects that we have worked on this year. I’d love to post a little bit about all of the projects that we worked on in 2010, but for that I would need to publish a book! So, instead I’ll just remind you of a few particularly memorable projects.
We printed and sewed so many amazing digitally printed backdrops this year. A few that come to mind include several gorgeous panels for Brooks & Dunn‘s “Last Rodeo” farewell tour (I love the cowgirl images!), the “Distressed Fleur de Lis” pattern for Little Big Town, Billy Idol in black and white, and, of course, the beautiful backdrop for Kenny Chesney (third year running). All beautiful, all unique!
Of course, all of the drapery that we make is custom-made according to the client’s specifications, so all projects are interesting and unique. But some projects really stand out. The Silver Scrim for Yusuf Islam was so beautiful and quite unusual. The Alice in Chains project was so cool that I posted about it twice, and of course the drapery in sheers and silvers for Celtic Woman set the perfect ethereal backdrop to their music.
These are the projects in which we really “think outside the box,” using materials and/or techniques that are just a little bit different from the usual drapery style. I loved the Metal Mesh frame pieces that we made for James Taylor and the Korn backdrop was an amazing combination of netting, digital printing, and smoke tubes. And just a few weeks ago – who could forget the American Parachute that we made for Katy Perry?
All of these terrific projects are just a small fraction of the projects we worked on in 2010. I can’t wait to see what projects come our way in 2011!
Happy New Year, everyone!
