Maya Romanoff on DesignMilk

We love hosting visitors to our offices. Not only do we enjoy showing off our space (which essentially doubles as our own Maya Romanoff Museum), we love to see the reactions from our guests when they step into our factory, which is located on-site at our location just north of Chicago. Despite the fact that most of our visitors know our wallcoverings are handmade, most are still surprised to see that our “factory” is full of apron-clad artisans instead of machinery.

The only thing better than a chance to offer up an office tour is when we’re giving to someone we’re particularly in awe of ourselves. We had that chance a few weeks back when we showed the folks behind Design Milk our space. If you’re a design-lover or a member of the trade, you already know Design Milk. If you’re not, it’s one of the largest, most comprehensive and beautiful interior design websites on the Internet.

Caroline Williamson of Design Milk saw a number of our most popular wallcoverings being made firsthand, including our Bedazzled, Ajiro Fanfare and Riverbed.

Below, Bedazzled is made by applying glass beads to tacky lengths of paper.

Here, our Ajiro Fanfare wood veneer wallcovering is coated with Ebony paint. 

And finally, Riverbed is in progress. It's started by painting rolls of paper with heavily pigmented ink, and later blotting of excess to leave the natural-looking, one-of-a-kind design.
