We absolutely love getting to work with fantastic tour, production, and event designers all over the country every year on their wonderful annual events, helping them create a fresh, new, and memorable stage for their special occasions. Recently we got to confer with stage and event designer extraordinaire Tanner Laughlin, who produced his fourth annual “Tanner Laughlin, Home For The Holidays” show for his enthusiastic Paris, Illinois community. He already had some red velvety drapery, and other holiday-themed furnishings, that he wanted to add a little bit of drama to. So we suggested some various, eclectic drapery options from our Specialty Drapery Rental Collections that would work impeccably for his event theme. Wanting these additional, complementary drapes to blend flawlessly with his existing stage décor and soft goods, and yet wanting to also add a dollop of something original and creative to the stage, he decided to use our exquisite rental 60’w Copper Sheer Swags from our Oh’ So Swanky Collection.

With gorgeous, gossamer swagettes ranging in height from 10’h to 22’h, he was able to adorn his staging with these drapes to help give his overall look some extra beautiful elegance and spendor, without distracting from the rest of the set design. These drapes are hung with clips, so they can easily be utilized for stages both narrow or wide, and can give your event or production a truly unique appearance for each and every set design. Splash some colorful lighting onto them and watch as they transform into the exact motif you are aiming for. Mix and match them with some of your own personal soft goods, or with any of the superb curtains from our Silver Satin or Rockin’ Red Drapery Collections to create a completely one-of-a-kind look (see example below).

The sky’s the limit with how you can use these striking drapes for your special event or production, too! We were thrilled with how utterly stunning this year’s stage design turned out at his event, and look forward to seeing what fantastically artistic ideas Tanner comes up with for next year’s program.
