Maya Romanoff

Maya Romanoff’s artisans have handcrafted wallcoverings from their studio in Chicago for close to 50 years. With her aesthetic sophistication, technical knowledge & prodigious energy, Joyce Romanoff has worked tirelessly to make this “art of everyday” scalable enough for global distribution. After becoming CEO, the company actively expanded, all while staying true to the guiding principles of company founder Maya Romanoff. Joyce is also the primary design force behind many of Maya Romanoff’s most innovative designs, including Mother of Pearl, hand-inlaid tiles of genuine seashell; Ajiro, micro-thin paulownia wood veneer; and Beadazzled Flexible Glass Bead Wallcovering. While these accomplishments are notable, Joyce is probably most proud of the fact that senior members of her team are all family members, including her son Michael as President, her daughter Jennifer as Vice President of Business Development, and her son-in-law David as Executive Vice President of Production and Product Development.
