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…

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.
Just got back from a very easy installation of Qmotion shades for marketing purposes. It was also a beautiful day on Pensacola Beach where the job was located. It took about 15 minutes per-shade, including taking down the old shades. It was literally as easy as two brackets and the shade was up and ready to be programmed. Take a look at how nice the job turned out. The fabric is Mermet E Screen 1% openess, which should block out most of the light, but I don’t know if it is enough for the blazing Florida sun! What do you guys think of the finished product?
A Greenville area elementary school got a modern touch in their gymnasium with the recent installation of Qmotion shades. Dacusville students may still have to worry about the opposing team blocking shots but Qmotion will be blocking the sun for many years to come. In the hard to reach windows above the basketball goal the motorized control comes into play and with the use of the USB timer remote the shades can be set to open and close automatically. This “set it and forget it” feature means that basketball coaches can worry about more important things, like how they are going to win the game!
