Process and Design
From Concept to Product
Maya Romanoff is a company of makers.
Every aspect of our business relates back to the pride and satisfaction of creating. Our inspiration is the materials themselves; from gold leaf to wood to glass beads to vinyl, our job is to coax out the beauty.
We always try to stay as close to the material as possible; we do not cover it up with heavy colors or finishes, but rather enhance it.
The heart of Maya Romanoff is in our own Chicago studio/factory.
Artisans hand-paint, inlay and finish tens of thousands of yards of wallcovering per year. As makers since 1969, we apply our principles of innovation to developing wallcoverings with mills around the world. We are not editors; we painstakingly develop technique and color palette along with our manufacturing partners.
Our guiding mantra from Maya is, “It’s got to be beautiful.”
Once we have a wallcovering we would want to live with in our own homes, we work to make sure it installs flawlessly, passes Class A fire test, is cleanable & durable, seams well and is available at a price point commensurate with its value.
Quality Control is what truly separates our products.
There’s industry standard and there’s Maya standard. Every one of our materials is inspected by Maya Romanoff employees. Each panel is graded for color flow. We customize our packaging so wallcoverings arrive thousands of miles away looking exactly the same as when they leave our shipping dock.
