REMEMBERING ~~ MAYA ROMANOFF

When it comes to decorating, most people settle for wallpaper. Richard “Maya” Romanoff, who passed away on January 15 at 72, offered what can only be described as wall experiences. I have long been a fan!!

After getting his start in the late 1960s by making tie-dyed T-shirts to sell at a Rolling Stones concert, the American entrepreneur brought his talents to other materials by establishing the Maya Romanoff Corporation. Based in the Chicago suburb of Skokie, the award-winning firm specializes in handmade wall coverings with alchemical special effects, impregnated with shimmering mica or mother-of-pearl, spattered with fine glass beads, or inlaid with laser-cut marquetry.

Whether opulent or funky, his work has one thing in common. “It’s got to be beautiful,” Romanoff often said. “That’s the only thing that counts.” mayaromanoff.com
