The Sailcloth Tent

CIMG2105The Sailcloth tent is relatively new to the tenting industry. The concept was born about 30 years ago, but it only really set sail recently in the past few years gaining popularity across the country. The sailcloth tent design was created in Massachusetts, targeting clients in many sailing communities along the east coast, but has since boomed across the nation.

The sailcloth tent differs from the rest of the tents we carry in many ways. It is constructed of a sailcloth material as opposed to the tradition vinyl tent tops. The translucent fabric allows light to flow inside the tent during daytime events and beams an a amazing glow when lit up for evening events. The tent has a more natural feel with this fabric top and wooden side and center poles.

DSC_0054We are excited to have the sailcloth tents in our inventory and available for our clients to rent for their functions. The sailcloth tents offer a sleek style that can be enhanced and dramatized with decorations and lighting, but also looks amazing as is, on its own. The clean interior and lack of valance around the perimeter gives the tent a very smooth, magical look that is simply elegant.

The Elegant Victorian Tent

The Victorian Style tent offers the same benefits of the party tent with an added elegance. Often referred to as a Century tent or a High Peak Pole tent, the Victorian tents have exaggerated peaks giving them a grander appearance from both the interior and the exterior. The high ceilings and peaks are a great backdrop to create a majestic space for your event!

We stock sizes ranging from 20′ x 20′ to 120′ x 700′ in the Victorian style. These tents can be installed on grass or staked into the pavement. If staking is not permitted we can use concrete blocks or weights to secure the guy ropes as well. The Victorian tent is used for a wide range of events including weddings, corporate events, galas, auctions, fundraisers, church festivals, and commencements.

The Victorian tent has a very clean, seamless interior. It it is supported by large center poles, side poles, and guy ropes. Unlike the frame tent with an aluminum pipe interior, the Victorian tent is an empty canvas. Many clients will project images or monograms on the fabric of the tent, or use other lighting such as paper lanterns or string lights to enhance the sleek style of the tent.

There is no limit to the accessories, enhancements and decorations that can be added to the Victorian tent to create a space unique to your event and style. We have white sheer leg drapery that can be installed on the center or side poles. Some of our clients use greenery, ribbon, fabric, lights or other accessories to enhance the poles, while others choose to leave them as is and let them blend into the rest of the decor. In our years of experience we have seen some very impressive transformations to our tents.
