We have posted previous blogs covering ways to set up perfect events, from weddings to business conferences. If you are looking to take things to the next level of professionalism and style, you will want to consider using pipe & drape and uplighting. We have put together this post to highlight the multiple benefits and uses of this beautiful and tasteful addition.


As with most things, the ability to be creative and resourceful can be one of the most useful skills you can have. Simply covering the walls of your office or warehouse with drape can make the space unrecognizable to those who spend their days there, and can prove to be an astonishing upgrade that will excite people. Beyond impressing guests with ingenuity, this resourcefulness can save boatloads of money, freeing up some budget space for extra features such as illuminated furniture, better entertainment, high-end catering, and any other party favor you can think of. If you are looking to make an ordinary event extraordinary, look no further than pipe & drape with uplighting.

Create an Ambiance

No matter what energy you are trying to fill the room with, pipe & drape with uplighting is one of the simplest and most effective routes to take and will literally light up the room. Black drapes paired with uplighting gets you 90% of the way to a perfect ambiance—then you will just need to choose the color of up-lighting to fit whatever mood you are aiming for. This is a surefire way to have your guests in the right state of mind the second they walk through the doors.

Illuminated Furniture

One of our favorite additions that we have seen to elevate the aesthetic of an event is the usage of LED illuminated furniture. It truly brings the look and feel of a high-end luxury space. The energy that fills the room is infectious and can be felt in every presentation, performance, and conversation throughout the event. If you can find room in the budget, we’d highly recommend this.
