BBC North and Deckchairstripes

We were privileged to be invited to a small get-together at Media City and yesterday evening gathered there to receive a memento for the BBC project which we were involved with from the start by ID:SR as a supplier of fabrics for soft furnishings within the complex.

It was fantastic to see the building at the completed stage (the security was like Fort Knox!) and finally meet the genius designers and architects who had worked with all the staff within the BBC to come up with a solution to working in the media in the 21st Century.

There are very few offices as such  –  areas are available for meetings with stunning ‘pods’ to sit in and if standing on the top floor, the view down is dizzying!

We were presented with a beautiful little booklet entitled ‘A Place to Provoke Smiles’ with text and illustrations on the ethos and construction of the project which involved many British, particularly local suppliers and manufacturers.

An evening to remember!

Deckchairstripes Sponsors Chester Open Air Theatre

Deckchairs in the parkLast week, the Chester Performs team met up with Deckchairstripes (now The Stripes Company) for fun in the park trying out all our lovely products.

Our company will be providing bunting, deckchairs, cushions and props for this year’s Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre.

This season’s open air theatre productions are all about colourful costumes, jousts and japes – The Stripes Company are the perfect fit as we have been trading online at http://www.thestripescompany.com for four years and are local to Chester.

Along with upmarket deckchairs, retro sun shelters, cushions and fabrics – in fact all sorts of festive summer dressing – we are already no slouch at helping out theatres.  The company’s fabrics have been used by the Royal Shakespeare Company, National Theatre and Shakespeare’s Globe.

Our traditional hardwood deckchairs will provide seating for VIP ticket holders, whilst the brightly coloured cushions will be made available for picnic terrace seating. There will also be plenty of bunting and Deckchairstripes’ unique beach tents will prove to be the perfect shelter for the on-site box office.
