Nora Lighting
Maya Romanoff, founder and chief creative officer of
the Maya Romanoff Corp., passed away peacefully
on January 15, in his home in Chicago. Born Richard
Romanoff in 1941, he took the simple premise of dyeing
fabric and created dyed leather and silk that can be
seen in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian
Cooper Hewitt Design Museum and the Art Institute of
Chicago. He eventually moved onto hand-dyed fabrics and wall coverings for interiors and incorporated materials like glass
beads, seashells, gold leaf and stitching into surfacing materials. Romanoff
was most proud of his studio and factory in Skokie, Ill., where artisans
handcraft wall coverings. His wife, Joyce Romanoff, became president of
Maya Romanoff in 2002, and her children and his niece assumed leadership roles in the company. Photo credit: George Lambros

Nora Lighting recently celebrated its 25th year in business at an
industry reception in its new 2,800-sq.-ft. showroom at the Dallas International Lighting Market. The company calls the new showroom
a working lab that demonstrates lighting effects with layers of light
in vignette settings, including a media room, loft, café, bathroom,
kitchen and a retail/merchandising area. The showroom's lab displays variations in lighting levels, including Kelvin temperatures,
CRI, lumen output and various wattages, as well as the difference
between LED and incandescent lamps. New products on display
at the Dallas showroom include the Sapphire Series of high-lumen
downlights, the Revo motorized track head and the LED Flex Beam
track head with floor and spotlighting.

Maytag has introduced its new
"Maytag Man," the face of the
brand that has evolved into his
new role as the appliance - be it
a dishwasher (shown), refrigerator, oven, washer or dryer. The
company sees this character as
the human embodiment of its
core values of reliability, durability and power. The Maytag Man performs
each appliance's task and is a creative interpretation of the company's
motto: What's Inside Matters. This is part of Maytag's multi-million-dollar
campaign to support current and new product launches for 2014 and
will be featured in four national TV ads that are also available on YouTube
and on Maytag's website.
