About Set Surfaces
Set Surfaces is a set hire service providing portable ready made and bespoke background solutions for shoots and events. Our panels consist of textiles mounted onto lightweight panels and come in a variety of designs and finishes. All textiles have been handpicked, from high end metallic snakeskin prints from Chelsea Harbour, to prints of plaster, wood and bricks shot in Argentina. Our panels are beautiful yet practical, and provide a simple cost effective background solution for small scale shoots and events without compromising on quality.
How We Started | Our Founder
Helen Labourt is the founder of Set Surfaces and an accomplished Set Stylist who has been working in the Film and Television Industry for more than 20 years.
Whilst dressing sets on location, Helen realised there was a need for ‘ready to hire’ portable textured backgrounds that would complement the set and conceal any issues with the location and so, Set Surfaces was born.
Today, the panels have evolved from early prototypes of wallpaper on wood and cardboard, to super lightweight panels with an extensive catalogue of both our own technical textile prints and designer brand luxe metallic fabrics.
