23rd Annual SDSA Awards Luncheon

IMG_0505This last Sunday the Biltmore Hotel was spilling over with set decorators. Not for any production, not for their regularly scheduled feeding, but for the Set Decorator’s Society of America’s annual awards luncheon.

IMG_0502Around 11 o’clock set decorators, prop house employees, friends and family began to mill around the silent auctions filled with great pieces of artwork while chatting with each other. A beautiful balloon archway greeted every person as they arrived.

Many awards were given out, including to Adrianna Cruz-Ocamo at U-Frame-It Gallery, Fred Arens and Jason Duguay at Ob-jects, and Advanced Liquidators.

The Lifetime Achievement Award of 2016 went to Ann D. McCulley, an incredibly accomplished veteran of set decoration. Her speech was a perfect mix of inspiration and wisdom, showing this award was justly earned.

As per usual there were raffle prizes handed and swag bags full of pens and what appear to be rubber duckies from NEST. Here’s to another fruitful year for the prop industry!

Advanced Liquidators Office Furniture – It’s Really More than Office Furniture Now

It’s always great to see new inventory coming through the door.Bank Deposit Stations

So if you haven’t zipped over to Advanced Liquidators Office Furniture’s new warehouse location on Vanowen Street, you will definitely be surprised of the new items they have brought in over the past few months.

A perfect example; Vintage Tanker Desks and Mid Century Modern Executive Desks are part of their latest additions. Even cooler, set of New Bank Teller Windows and Bank Deposit Stations.Advance Teller wndows

Oh and for that school lunch room set they have multiples of 12 foot Cafeteria Lunch Tables. Excellent when you need to shoot a scene where dozens of kids are munching on their lunches.

Seriously, swing by their newer location. You will not regret it!
