Turnkey Solutions for Custom Needs: Sandusky State Theatre in Ohio

The Sandusky State Theatre, a historical landmark in Ohio wanted to transform the main stage of the 90-year-old theatre with new curtains designed to bring the space to life and capture the theatre’s rich heritage.

Inspired by photos of the theatre’s interior architecture, we designed a curtain that incorporated a prominent curvilinear architectural detail on the walls near the stage.

Replicating the intricate pattern at the bottom of a pleated drape presented an interesting design challenge. How do you get the pattern applique to display appropriately, despite the fullness sewn into the curtain? Our technical team developed several renderings of the project, and then several physical mock-ups, before obtaining final design approval.

Rose Brand Inc. led the customer through the entire design, specification and build of this project. The job was a collaborative effort between the client and our sales team, design team, technical department, sewing shop and senior management. It’s a great example of how Rose Brand provides turnkey solutions to custom needs.
