The Chambre

A 3 walled set with functional window and opalescent patina walls. Great for 1-3 people. It can be configured as a workshop, sitting room, clawfoot bathroom, or used bare. We store our props in place, and everything moves.

This setup provides an authentic vintage patina rich workshop.

The Boiler Room

Our boiler room set (or Murder Room, as it’s affectionately known) has three walls and shares the functioning window from the adjacent Chambre set. This horror themed set is our most fun and interactive. We have a full set of rusty tools and props to help accomplish many looks. The antique wheelchair, clawfoot tub and dental chair some of the most striking accent pieces that can be used to change the feel of the room.
