Having an innovative and creative team working hard on your event is every artist’s wish, and such definitely ended up being the case with Nelly Furtado’s recent leg of her American tour. Rent What? Inc. was extremely happy to not only supply her team with beautiful theatrical drapery rentals, but we were also thrilled to supply some gorgeous pieces especially designed and built for them by Sew What? Inc. Plus, her lighting and stage designers helped create a mesmerizing look for her show that completely dazzled her audience and captivated their attention for this amazing artist’s sold-out shows. Photographer Tom Leparskas was able to capture the show perfectly, and was very generous to allow us to showcase his photos of these magnificent and versatile drapes on our website.
The stage designers wanted something that would be light and easy to put up, reflect any splashes of light that they might want to throw at them, and yet also stand alone as stunning drapes all on their own. They started with some rich and velvety Black Encore Velour masking drapes to help create negative space on and off stage. They then used three Sew What? custom-built 8’h x 16’w swags to frame the top of the stage, made from a luxurious aqua-gold shimmery organza, which reflected their various lighting schemes perfectly. Lastly, they hung several various sized pre-pleated Pewter Textura drapes from Rent What’s Timeless and Traditional Collection to help transform their stage into an utterly radiant sight.
These drapes are unbelievably diverse and have the ability to reflect all kinds of lighting to help create a distinctive staging design every time. Try mixing and matching them with other drapes from our rental collection, like our Aluminum Mesh from our Industrial Textures Collection, or our Silver Satin Austrians from our Silver Satin Collection, to make your stage design uniquely inspired!
