He was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1991, yet continued to lead the company with in partnership with Joyce and their family. He made the best of his 72 years and brought beauty into the lives of all he and his company touched. A leading resource for surface coverings, Maya Romanoff has been featured in prestigious projects including Nobu in Hong Kond, Melbourne and Los Angeles, the Green Room at the Kodak Theater for the 2007 Academy Awards, Tiffany & Co, the new Playboy Club in Los Angeles, Boucheron stores, Phantom of the Opera Theater in Los Angeles, special projects for Walt Disney, the palace of the Crown Prince of Dubai, Harrod’s, American Girl Stores, and luxurious homes around the world.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and staff. While he may no longer be physically with us, he has left an indelible mark on the design industry that will live on forever.
