Recently Rent What? Inc. had the pleasure of working with Raphael Saadiq on some beautiful drape rentals for his concert tour stage design. His crew wanted draping that was simple yet dramatic, something that could be lit to look different at each show if need be, and something that was versatile enough to be able to have its shape and style change from night to night. We came up with gorgeous White Voile draping 24’h by almost 70’w with 100% fullness (lots of pleating) from our Delightably White Drapery Collection, which you can see turned out to be exactly what was asked for.
Because of the sheer textile of White Voile, it could be dramatically lit with all sorts of colors and intensities to help create the right mood for each song being played. They were able to hang these drapes at different angles because of the clever usage of the drapes’ grommets and ties on top, and so they were able to make unique staging while still using the same drapes over and over again.
We love being able to come up with memorable drapery rentals for our clients. This was a perfect example of how we help accomplish what our clients want without them having to spend an arm and a leg on renting multiple types of drapes in order to create a new and unique feel for each show.
