Next Cool Event 2012: Qmotion Shades

A collaborative design affair mixing the best and latest   from the entertainment industry, music industry, the interior design industry   and the event industry…featuring people, places and things which are   cutting edge. The Next Cool Event was a flamboyant   fusion of designers, performers, artists, caterers, and creative geniuses   from the entertainment industry packed together under one roof rolling in   from all over the state. The event was a celebration of successes of the   Georgia entertainment industry, with exciting anticipation of what is yet to   come this year. Actors, acrobats, cosmetologists, models, architects,   engineers, virtuosos and fans filled the sets and walkways. The expo center   was full of installments and booths from prehistoric times showcasing The Flintstones,   to post-apocalyptic Wizard of Oz, and futuristic creations with   Qmotion Shades’ Hitman.

The Next Cool Event was a great opportunity to share with the general public, as well as high-end designers, the endless possibilities Qmotion Shades has to offer. The response was overwhelming, we met designers, NFL players, musicians, actors writers and movie producers as well as. We chose to go with a simple yet elegant statement; we used all white furniture along with White shades and pops of red to really grab the attention of interested party goers. An event of this magnitude is rare, that you can get 3-4 different industries together in one place, 160,000 sq. ft. place. But we thought an event like this could be a spring-board to expose our products to the many facets of the design, movie and music industry. Again Qmotion Shades were a hit…

European Window Fashions for 2012: What’s hot in Germany

Qmotion shades recently hosted an international guest from Stuttgart, Germany, to check out our new motorized roller shade technology. He enjoyed his trip here and was able to educate us on what window fashions are popular in Europe this year. He shared with me the following pictures recently and I thought they were very interesting. The things to look for on the horizon are primary colors, floral prints, and the use of blackout fabrics. In Europe, this year “panel track” systems are also trendy, they combine bold colors and floral prints to make a major statement in a room. Unlike American window fashions that are meant to complement the style of a room; German window fashions are meant to be the focal point and accentuate the simple modern styling.
