The brilliance of our tents use light to create beauty.  Most events which are hosted during the evening hours and into night need to consider lighting as a key element to success of your event. There are many different ways to light a tent, so take an opportunity to browse the amazing collection of photographs that show how the different styles of lighting can transform the event space.

As many of our locations offer different products specific to the needs of each region, you should contact your local service office to inquire about specific items you may need.


Textured Lighting Wash: 
Use ellipsoidal fixtures with patterns overlaid on a color wash to create amazing texture

Bistro Peak Drape:
Draping of bistro lighting from the side poles to the centerpoles can create an even spread of gentle light over the tented space

Add lanterns to the center poles of the tent to add a nautical ambiance to other incorporated lighting

Bistro Perimeter Lighting:
Stringing bistro lighting around the entire edge of the tent can be used by itself in smaller tents or combined with lanterns or color washes in larger tents


Sailcloth Tents

Sailcloth tents rely on tension in the membrane to hold the shape of the tent system. These tents are supported by single or multiple centerpoles in the middle of the tent area and a series of sidepoles around the perimeter of the tent area. The tent is tensioned toward the anchoring locations commonly with a rope or ratchet strap.
