Savanna Sunrise

It is a good morning as a new dawn is upon us and it’s full of energy and color. Inspiration can be found from the graphic adornment of Ndebele homes in South Africa, to the transformative colors of the first light breaking the stillness of the night. Returning to the tradition of the loom, this morning light is woven into unexpected textures, so serene yet full of vitality.

The collection has five fabrics for upholstery (Baobab, Oasis, Serengeti, Tribu, Veldt) in a total of 50 colorways. Linen is the thread running through them all, including a 100% linen velvet.

thesign has also added new colors to compliment the new collection for Flair, Gatsby, Gordon, and Madagascar. The new dawn is even brighter and more vibrant.

A Day in the Jungle - A Night at the Opera

What is this place? Creatures unknown hiding in shadow, rich heavy air alive with sounds, birdsong pierces the canopy, sunlight filtering through trees like lace made of diamonds, a sparkling waterfall emerges. Wildness comes for you. Smooth water, hands brushing palm leaves, camouflage unseen, extravagant flowers like fever dreams, bare feet on the earth. It pulls you toward your instincts, the pulse of life in bodies, vines, trees, breath, jungle. You belong here, unleashed.

That night, a different place entirely. Crystal chandeliers like diamonds of sunlight, sparkling wine like a wild waterfall, bodies brush like fluttering wings. The world’s newest opera house premieres a daring show. When the curtain rises, there it is again - the jungle, powerful and alive. The voice of the soprano reaches out like a path calling you deeper into mystery. Vines curl over the stage, flowers in shadow, piccolos pierce the air like birdsong, drums pulsing with life. You belong here, too. Creature of day and night, order and chaos, the wild and the sublime.

Adagio


thesign of Symphonies

The Maestro emerges after his latest triumph, hungry for inspiration. He wanders the streets late into the evening, seeing patterns everywhere. Passing lights, belle epoque buildings draped in golden light, trees whispering overhead.
Through a window he hears the clear voice of a soprano float into the street. The very first serenata he performed as a young soloist. Is it a sign? The breeze brings the scent of a cypress forest, and suddenly he’s transported to the wild places where he played as a child, the moss on the riverbank soft as velvet.

The concert hall, months later. The baton on its velvet cushion like moss. The soprano in her silk gown, watching him expectantly. The audience rustling in their seats like so many leaves in an evening wind. The footlights flash like gold off the instruments awaiting his command.

The orchestra begins - the symphony of signs.

Symphony No.10

Lush velvet seats. The rustling of silk gowns. Whispers of anticipation as the sparkling lights dim low. A moment of stillness, breath held, as the world outside the theater falls away. The Maestro steps into the spotlight.

He remembers amid thunderous applause, the many nights alone laboring in the struggle of creation, the moments of doubt and the moments of elation when the music flowed through him like the voice of life itself.

Now the moment of truth - the baton pauses and begins its dance. The symphony, these chosen notes, sing out for the very first time. And though the instruments are centuries old, though they play on the stage where many Masters have stood before, it is as if each heart in the theater is born anew. Even the most tired cynicism falls away in the face of true beauty.

Emotions unlock, and the journey begins. The symphony moves… through highs and lows. Moments of deep passion. Moments of quiet reflection. Moments both indescribable and unforgettable, somehow familiar and yet entirely new. By intermission you need a drink. By the finale, you feel you have touched something timeless, removed from ordinary life, elevated. Elevating. The melody plays in your mind for days. The feeling stays forever.
