What Elevates Pipe and Drape Above Other Partitions?

As any architect can testify, the importance of empty space, and the use of items to enhance and transform areas within that space, is a key design element. A quick Google search will provide countless articles in support of this stance.

But how is this space created and shaped? Often, it’s done with partitions. Walls, fences, or ropes made from glass, plaster, concrete, wood, steel, yarn, or velvet all, at the end of the day, serve the express purpose of shaping the space they contain. While each method has its place, there is one type of partition that is guaranteed to add class and style to any function: drapes.

Drapes can be used against walls, or ceiling draping fabric can be set up, to ensure that guests will be visually impressed wherever they happen to look. At Pipe and Drape Online, you can find everything from classy satin drapes, to dignified velour drapes, to luminous sheer drapes, to timeless polyester drapes. With infinitely more personality than ordinary walls, each material creates a different atmosphere -- so if you have an event coming up that you need to partition and want to add class, here is a guide for which drapes to use:

  • Weddings: Sheer voile draping fabric, with its large size and enticing interactions with light, will ensure that your room stands out! On average, 2.4 million weddings are held in the U.S. each year, and whether used to cover walls, or hung above on your ceiling, this fabric is ideal for creating unforgettable wedding spaces by adding an almost magical feel to any room.

  • Theatrical Productions: The quintessential stage adornment, velour drapes are instantly recognizable. Prized for their opacity and sound-absorption (especially with heavier weight Velour fabrics), these drapes are an absolute necessity for any performance.

  • Conventions and Trade Shows: In commercial settings where fire resistance is intensely regulated, Banjo drapes are perfect on account of their Inherently Flame Retardant (IFR) properties, and is generally the go-to for drapery used in conventions, trade shows, job fairs, and other exhibitions.

  • Schools and Businesses: Classy yet neutral, Poly Premier drapes are perfect for academic and business settings. It’s an ideal fabric that is both eye pleasing and durable for repeated use. You can use colors to reinforce your corporate branding, or you can never go wrong with black or white Poly Premier draping that will complement any theme.

Using draping to transform empty space is a time-tested method to quickly and easily add visual appeal to any room. If you have an upcoming event and would like to learn more about the perfect drapes to use, contact us today and we’ll be happy to help.
