Add interest to any event with linens and drapes
You can work magic with fabric, whether you’re adding a runner to tabletops, draping the ceiling and walls in an old or industrial space or transporting attendees to another world with backdrops. Today’s producers use modern equipment and techniques to create new effects with fabrics.
Another Place or Even Another World
Backdrops Fantastic can take you from the African plains to the French Quarter to worlds you’ve never even imagined. All of the company’s images are hand-painted originals that will make your event memorable, whether it’s a corporate meeting or a social occasion. You can also have a custom backdrop designed for your client. Sectional backdrops, with detachable sections, let you set up easily to create the environment you want. Backdrops can be rented or purchased.

Create A Color Trio
Sculptware’s new SplashBacks offer a new array of options for color theming and styling. These stretch-to-fit chair back accents retain the sleek, artistic Sculptware look while allowing an additional bold splash of color. In conjunction with Sculptware’s accent bands, SplashBacks enable event designers to create custom arrangements with up to three colors or print patterns per chair.
Splashbacks are easily added by simply pulling them down over the back of a Sculptware-covered chair. The third band of color is added by lowering an accent band over the back and the chair cover.
