Maya Romanoff wallcoverings
Maya Romanoff is an artist, inventor, and director of the Maya Romanoff Corporation, a leading manufacturer of innovative wall covering and surfacing materials in the world of design.
The Maya Romanoff Corporation was established in 1969 and has grown to more than 60 employees. The Chicago based company is unique in that it fosters a sense of community and artistic expression that is rare in today’s corporate world. Throughout the company’s evolution Romanoff’s founding vision of transforming modern design by combining ancient artistic techniques with the latest production technology has held strong. Pushing technological boundaries has allowed Romanoff to turn his affinity for organic beauty into marketable, avant-garde surface coverings.
The Maya Romanoff Corporation was the first to experiment with glass and shook the design world with the introduction of Beadazzled – the flexible glass beaded wall covering that earned a permanent place in the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum. Long before wood began to appear as wall coverings they introduced a collection of micro-thin, flexible wood veneers with intricate laser-cut patterns. Tapping into nature’s beauty, another of the company’s most innovative introductions is Mother of Pearl, a collection of flexible, glowing tiles made of genuine capiz shell.
In 2007, the Maya Romanoff Corporation embarked on its first collaboration with the renowned architect David Rockwell to design a collection of rich, tactile wall coverings. The David Rockwell for Maya Romanoff Collection is a successful fusion of creative vision and artistic perspectives, introducing original concepts in surface design such as “Stitched” which utilizes the original concept of best-seller Weathered Walls, and “Blanket,” soothing wool blend coverings with intricate, stitched details.
