Are You Planning the Decor for a Large Scale Special Event?

By |January 20th, 2014|Products|0 Comments

Perhaps you have determined the mood you want to create, such as one of fantasy and romance for a high end wedding reception or charity ball, but you want something a little different, something that hasn’t been done a lot. Why not use an Austrian Curtain to set the scene?

Once used almost exclusively in theatres, today designers across the spectrum, from music concert set designers to high end event planners, are discovering the versatility of these gorgeous drapes. You can choose an operating Austrian Curtain, along with a lift system, to allow you to lift the curtain to reveal a scene behind, or choose a non-operable Austrian Curtain to serve purely as a beautiful backdrop.

Custom Austrian Curtains can be manufactured in a variety of sizes, fabrics, and colors, to add to your event decor inventory, while rental Austrian Curtains are also available if you need one for a single event only.

Are You Looking For A Dramatic Backdrop to Your Tour Lighting Design?

By |January 15th, 2014|Products|0 Comments

Traditionally, tour lighting designers who wanted to project a lighting design have chosen a projection screen or a fabric backdrop. But what if you are looking for something a little different, something that adds texture to the mix and really highlights your talent as a lighting designer?

A Metal Mesh Backdrop is a dynamic option that can take your design to the next level. Made of a silver/grey flexible aluminum mesh, the backdrops have an organic crushed appearance that enhances projected lights.  Consider using them on their own, or in conjunction with a projection screen or fabric backdrop for a variety of textures.

Reflexionando en 2013 y en espera de 2014

By |January 10th, 2014|Clients, Company|0 Comments

Es difícil de creer, pero 2013 ha terminado, y con la temporada navideña llegó el momento para reflexionar sobre el año pasado.

Celebramos el año pasado nuestro 16 aniversario en el negocio como Sew What? Desde los primeros días de vuelta en el garaje, cortar la tela en las tablas del suelo de roble y quitando la cena de la mesa para hacer espacio para la máquina de coser de hecho, hemos recorrido un largo camino. Con nosotros tantas caras conocidas-empleados del comienzo y los clientes y proveedores por igual. Por ese solo hecho estamos en deuda con los que nos rodean, que nos han ayudado a crecer y nos apoyó a través de nuestras muchas etapas. Calle Madison en un acogedor espacio de 800 pies cuadrados, Vermont ave. en un funcional 6.000 pies cuadrados, y aquí en la calle Gladwick en nuestro propio 15.000 pies cuadrados de lujo y expresión concreta a los que se han trasladado con nosotros a través de los años … ¡Gracias!

Ha habido una gran energía entre el recién rebautizado “Whatter’s?, Como lo hemos hecho grandes avances para mezclar nuestros procesos de venta y alquiler. Rent What? Ha pasado de ser una empresa independiente para una que está más integrada en la Familia Sew What? Estamos muy agradecidos a aquellos clientes que han abrazado nuestra “dualidad” y ahora disfrutar tanto de nuestra experiencia de alquiler, así como nuestra más conocida experiencia en ventas personalizadas.

Nuestro dar temporada siguió la tradición filantrópica anual. Sé que muchos de ustedes han sido afectados por el cáncer, ya sea para usted o su familia y amigos, así como yo he sido. En honor a mi madre Delice quienes perdimos en 2012, y todas las personas afectadas por el cáncer, hemos hecho una donación para apoyar la investigación del cáncer de la Sociedad Americana del Cáncer. Esperamos que nuestro regalo sea hacer una diferencia en la vida futura de las personas diagnosticadas con cáncer.

Todos aquí son excitados al comenzar el Año Nuevo, y esperamos con interés a todos los proyectos desafiantes e interesantes que están por venir. ¡Esperamos que todos hayan tenido unas maravillosas fiestas y les deseo un exitoso 2014!

Want to Create a Dozen Extraordinary Looks for Your Touring Backdrop?

By |January 9th, 2014|Products, Projects|0 Comments

You could buy a dozen different scenic backdrops, but who wants to move a bunch of backdrops around from venue to venue, or to have to swap out backdrops constantly throughout the show?  Why not choose a solid fabric backdrop and create the myriad of looks by projecting colored lights onto it?

 

Recently, The Black Crowes chose a rented White Poly Muslin Backdrop as the primary focus of the set design for their Fall 2013 tour.  Sounds pretty simple, doesn’t it?  But with the addition of a brilliant projected lighting design, the end result was anything but simple. In a word – spectacular!
