Sometimes you need to set a beautiful stage, create a spectacular proscenium, and leave the audience breathless with your design—all with the same theatrical drapery. Have no fear….it CAN be done! Recently we got to work with the extremely talented scenic designer Russell Langdon and his artistic team over at Fuse Technical Group for a very high-profile event that they produced at the lavish Rosemont Theater. They wanted some gorgeous rental draperies as tall as we could get for them, to be shipped from our warehouse in LA directly to the theater in Rosemont, Illinois—not a problem!
Knowing they needed to hang a projection screen across the middle of the stage, they still wanted to display some exquisite curtains that would help frame the proscenium, but without covering any of the screen at all. Russell smartly ended up choosing some of our extraordinary 40’h x 10’w Silver Satin Shirred Drapery Legs from our Silver Satin Rental Drapery Collection to hang behind and next to the screen instead. Needing to cleanly and evenly pull the drapery to the sides, giving the soft goods a “tableau curtain” effect, he used our Silver Tassle Tiebacks to help complete this look.
There were different parts of the program that they also wanted to make a clear distinction for, and these Silver Satin beauties reflected and brandished colorful theatrical lighting like an absolute dream! Their Lighting Designer Brad Criswell skillfully splashed different schemes of lighting onto the drapes at various parts of the program, which gave their stage a new and exceptional look each and every time. You can see in these photos taken by Russell that by simply changing the color from gold to blue hues, it completely changed the overall feel of the motif. We were beyond impressed with how fabulous Fuse did with this event’s flawless arrangement, and look forward to seeing what innovative and striking design that they come up with next. Let our team of drapery experts help you find the perfect stage curtains for your next upcoming special event, too!
