Extraordinary Surfacing Materials

Maya Romanoff is the largest manufacturer of handcrafted wallcoverings in the United States. For over 50 years, our artisans have methodically incorporated such materials as glass beads, gold leaf, seashells, and wood with pigments, dye and more to create extraordinary surfacing materials, right in our Chicago Studio.

Whether these materials are produced locally in our studio, or abroad in one of our many partnering factories, handmade or by machine, each and every product is put through Maya Romanoff’s rigorous standard for quality, beauty and innovation, with a guiding mantra, “Make every wall beautiful”.
