If walls could talk... August 29, 2017

 

Every wallcovering in our showroom has a story to tell. In this blog post we explore the beauty of handmade and the craftsmanship and inspiration involved in creating luxury handmade wallcoverings, from the sourced materials to the refined skills needed to make these unique products.

MAYA ROMANOFF

Maya Romanoff is a company of makers. 

Their inspiration comes from the materials themselves. Each new design draws from the innate beauty and unique characteristics of the material whether it be wood, glass beads or gold leaf. They always try to stay as close to the material as possible; they do not cover it up with heavy colours or finishes, but rather enhance the natural beauty. The heart of Maya Romanoff is in their Chicago studio/factory. Artisans hand-paint, inlay and finish tens of thousands of yards of wallcovering per year. As makers since 1969, their guiding mantra from Maya himself is, “It’s got to be beautiful.”
