PEOPLE & PLACES 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.
