Wallpaper as Art
Trends in Wallpaper
Going to the Maya Romanoff wallpaper showroom at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago, is like visiting an art museum. I wandered in there last week, and was in awe of the variety and beauty of the full length samples hanging one after another.
Maya Romanoff is the largest manufacturer of handcrafted wallcoverings in the United States. For more than 40 years, their artisans have incorporated glass beads, gold leaf, seashells, wood and stitching right in a Chicago studio.
Wallpaper is a great way to add warmth and character to a space. It can be placed on one wall (or ceiling!) as an accent or in an entire room. It can work in any room from the Bedroom to the powder room. Add some depth and pattern above a fireplace or behind open shelves. The colors, patterns and textures are endless. Current trends include retro geometrics, textures representing nature, metallic and matte patterns, floral and hand-sewn details.
