Simple Elegance Of Austrian Zip-Wall Drapes Work Impeccably For Tour

By |April 16th, 2019|Clients, Products, Projects|0 Comments

We have been so proud of the images and comments coming back to us lately from happy Rent What? clients who have used our striking rental drapes for their special events, concerts, and tours. Our theatrical curtains are all easy to hang, easy to ship, and are absolutely outstanding with reflecting colorful lighting–which can better help create unique and gorgeous one-of-a-kind looks for all kinds of stage designs.

November 20 - Jorja Smith + Ravyn Lenae @ Orpheum Theatre

Recently we were thrilled to work with the incredible Lighting Designer Tyler Trofatter, with Trofatter Productions. He needed some breathtaking, yet versatile, rental drapes that he and his lighting director Matthew Kemp could impeccably light up on a leg of Jorja Smith’s much-anticipated–and smash success–national tour.  Known for her charming–yet complexly vibrant–songs, they didn’t want to build a stage design that would be overly extravagant. Tyler and the exceptionally talented lighting team at HSL strived to have this up-and-coming young songstress’s enraptured audiences be able to fully hear and absorb the words and the music coming from the songs themselves, and not be distracted by a lot of “muss and fuss” onstage. But they still wanted to create a beautiful, picturesque background for this soulful and sultry powerhouse to sing in front of, too.

They would require rental drapes that could fit in various sized concert halls, but still needed something that they would look magnificent in and of themselves, too. Choosing 30’h x 16’w Cloud Satin Austrian Zip-Wall Curtains (from our Silver Satin Rental Drapery Collection), they could zip together as many–or as few–as they needed to create the backdrop necessary for that particular stage’s dimensions. As you can see by these amazing photos (taken by some supremely gifted tour photographers), they did a truly sensational job with the show’s entire motif!

The fantastic staging, the perfectly added décor, the dazzling RW drapes, the stunning theatrical lighting…they all lent to fashioning a genuinely spectacular tour design not soon forgotten by Smith’s excited audiences all over the country. Let our team of drapery experts help provide you with some of our exquisite rental OR custom-made theatrical curtains for your upcoming special event, concert, or production, too.

Colorful Digitally Printed Drapes Perfectly Compliment Tour’s Upbeat Atmosphere

By |April 8th, 2019|Clients, Digital Printing, Projects|0 Comments

We love when we get to help our clients create create a one-of-a-kind experience for the adoring fans of their band or artist, by building them custom-made theatrical drapes–which can then be enjoyed throughout the entire duration of their tour or production. A splash of vibrant color is often a very effective way to really grab the audience’s attention, and custom digitally-printed drapes and stage skirts are a fantastic method of adding an array of exciting colors to your own unique stage or event design.

Jason Mraz- Good Vibes Tour at Edgefield

This past summer our Senior Sales Representative Shane Nelsen was delighted to work again with the incomparable Production Manager Ettore Dedivitiis (“E.T.”) this past summer on Jason Mraz’s international “Good Vibes Tour” (which, due to its wild popularity, is still going strong and slated to continue through at least until this fall). ET wanted a versatile stage backdrop and a few complimentary, matching riser skirts for these lively, high-energy shows. He would need these drapes to work well on stages that were both large and small, and in venues that might be indoors or outdoors

Jason Mraz- Good Vibes Tour at Edgefield

With spot-on advice from Shane, ET decided to have us custom-build the tour some beautiful stage curtains out of our digitally-printed IFR Vinyl Mesh. This 25% blow-through (“wind transmission”) substrate is the perfect option when you are looking for a polyester coated material that will offer excellent color accuracy and high quality durability, and yet still be weather resistant. Tours love this direct-print digital substrate because it is lightweight, has low wind flow resistance, and yet still offers crisp image details and a truly brilliant color display. As you can see, these drapes were the perfect background for these cheerful, upbeat performers at both indoor concert halls and outdoor arenas.

Check out our new Flickr Gallery to see a collection of exceptional photos of these distinctive and vivacious digitally printed stage drapes, taken by a couple very talented photographers across the country. We strive to provide our clients with memorable stage curtains for all of their special stage designs, and were thrilled with how eye-catching these drapes turned out. Contact a sales rep today and let us help you create a completely original look for your design, too. We highly recommend that you try and catch Jason Mraz’s Good Vibes Tour live in person this summer, too—it’s a fantastic, exhilarating show filled with Jason’s honeyed voice and an incredibly talented band of musicians and back-up singers. It’s an unforgettable, feel-good show that the entire family will enjoy!

Event Design Innovatively Uses Silver Satin Legs

By |March 19th, 2019|Clients, Products, Projects|1 Comment

It’s always very exciting to work with our super-artistic clients who are envisioning a stage or production design using our rental drapes and soft goods in unique and innovative ways. This helps them produce a completely one-of-a-kind, memorable look for their own special event that has never been seen before.  

Recently we were thrilled to hear from the talented Nathan Braniff and his exceptional team of event production staff at Cory’s Audio Visual, a family-owned Oklahoma-based AV company that strives to give their clients an outstanding experience time and time again. We love working with these impressive folks because they are ready to “think outside the box” when it comes to stage designs, and they consistently fabricate dazzling stage designs using curtains of various different styles and sizes. For this project, they needed to build a stage for the Associated General Contractors of Oklahoma Executive Board Meeting that would be functional, but also had a little extra “panache.”

To help them achieve their design goals, we were delighted to provide them with a handful of our gorgeous 40’h Silver Satin Legs from our Silver Satin Rental Collection. They were able to swag these taller-than-average shirred drapes horizontally and then clamp them onto the truss bar directly—creating a truly distinctive background for the event’s special presenters and speakers. Adding some eye-catching and colorful theatrical lighting to these curtains, they were able to create a fresh, new motif for each individual portion of the meeting. Easy to hang, easy to ship, and utterly spectacular to light up, drapes from our luminous Silver Satin Collection are a surefire crowd-pleaser! Photographed beautifully by Jerry Hymer, you can see that, by simply changing the color of lighting being splashed onto these drapes, Nathan and his lighting designers were able to give this event’s staging an absolutely resplendent appearance.    

Let our experienced sales reps help provide you with the drapery elements you need to build the remarkable event or production design that you are envisioning, too—contact one of them today!

Masking Drapes Help Holiday Event Design Truly Shine

By |February 19th, 2019|Clients, Products, Projects|1 Comment

Sometimes, it is what is being masked on stage that actually helps our clients create the most extraordinarily spectacular looks. This past holiday season, we were delighted to work again with Robert Polk and the amazing folks over at First Baptist Church in Jackson, MS. They produce the most incredibly inspiring “Carols By Candlelight” holiday production every year, and we are always thrilled when our beautiful rental drapes are selected to be a part of their set design.

Already displaying a multitude of beautiful holiday ornamentations, twinkly lighting, magnificent staging, and even larger-than-life Christmas trees, they needed to “mask off” the huge screen on their center stage so that the rest of the décor could really pop. Sharing the stage with a phenomenal orchestra, exceptional choir, gifted ballet dancers, and even talented actors, these drapes assisted with their stage design’s overall motif without distracting from the performances at hand. By providing them with a variety of rich, black IFR 15oz. Encore Velour masking rental drapes (from 12’h to 40’h), they were able to surround this sizable screen completely. This enabled them to focus everyone’s attention on the video and imagery being projected onto the screen during key portions of their remarkable program. You can see with these stunning photos taken by Rushing Images how effective the masking drapes were in aiding their event designers in creating memorable looks for each unique part of the show.

Durable, velvety, and versatile, these drapes can ship directly anywhere and for any purpose that you might need them. Arriving to your doorstep in sturdy drapery bags or dependable drapery hampers (packaging does not cost anything extra), these drapes can be used in a wide variety of ways—everything from stage masking, seat covers, truss borders, and neatly sectioning off larger areas into smaller ones. Give our reps a call or email today and let us assist you with some beautiful, multi-purposeful stage drapes for your next special event, whether it be significant or more intimate—we’ve got the drapes for you!

Cloud Satin Austrian Zip-Walls Help Create A Dynamic Stage For Benefit Concert

By |February 11th, 2019|Clients, Products, Projects|1 Comment

We were recently very excited to get to work with one of our extraordinary local clients, the President and Chief Designer of Spark Creative Events, Lani Ballonoff. He needed to help set the stage for an exceptional fundraising event that they were designing for the “Kids Helping Kids Benefit Show” at the beautiful and historic Granada Theater in downtown Santa Barbara. They needed curtains that would have a spectacular larger-than-life appearance, but be versatile enough for them to fashion new and exciting looks throughout the course of the show. They specifically needed a unique backdrop that they could use during the engaging performance of the event’s live entertainment, the dynamic duo Johnnyswim.

The perfect solution was having Spark Creative use three of our gorgeous rental 30’h x 16’w IFR “Cloud” Satin Austrian Zip-Walls from our Silver Satin Drapery Collection. These drapes enabled their team to simply yet effectively create several sensational motifs that would showcase the benefit’s stage design beautifully. By lighting these curtains with a multitude of color schemes, the event’s impressive lighting designers were able to play around with different ambiances by simply mixing up the color palette and saturations.

These theatrical stage curtains gave the design a fresh and exciting look throughout the entire event. You can see how a little change of color can also effectively change the entire feel of a design, as these drapes reflect any light splashed on them remarkably well. What makes our Austrian Zip-Wall draperies so distinctive is that they allow you to literally build an entire wall length of this lavish draping by zipping them flawlessly together. They can either zip together to produce a stunning seamless backdrop, or be used as independent legs to add texture and depth to an existing event design.

This durable IFR fabric is opaque but still amazingly lightweight and plays with theatrical lighting superbly. These drapes will reflect whatever kind of dramatic theatrical lighting you use on them, helping make your event design even more amazing. We love being able to work with our incredible clients, like the artistic team at Spark Event Creative, by providing them with the theatrical curtains needed to create the exact vision that they are going for. Nothing makes us happier than helping offer our clients innovative design ideas to be used for extraordinarily important philanthropic charity events like this one!
