I think “bedazzled” just made its comback…

April 13, 2011

and Maya Romanoff (the same man who made tie-dye hip) is leading the way. Maya Romanoff has been designing and creating extraordinary surfacing materials for over 50 years. They specialize in uniquely handcrafted wall and surface coverings, utilizing materials ranging from wool to glass, and everything in between.

I first learned of Maya Romanoff during a visit to the Merchandise Mart (or as we lovingly refer to it, the “merch mart”, or simply the “mart”), in the heart of downtown Chicago. The showroom, in the northwest corner on the 6th floor, in suite 6-167, is a true testament to the company. when you first turn the corner, you are greeted a long wall, covered from floor to ceiling in their newest innovation, Beadazzled Flexible Glass Bead Wallcovering®, and the company’s name, in larger-than-life illuminated signage.

 

This image does not do this justice. 😦

 

Upon closer viewing, one can see the thousands of tiny glass balls, of varying sizes and shades, that have been hand applied. And Bedazzled will do just that to you, leave you in absolute awe. They have it all over the place; table tops, columns, mirrors, even the lamp shades.

 

Sparkle!

SO. MUCH. SPARKLE.

 

And! It comes in just about every colour and “feel” your little hearts may desire.

 

Bedazzled Leaf

 

 

Seriously, I could stare at this stuff all day for the rest of my life and die happy.

 

Silver and Gold

 

 

New goal for 2011: Order enough samples to fill every wall of my apartment. And the ceiling.

They even do murals! Oh My!

Detail

 

As you can clearly see, I am thoroughly smitten. The more and more I see, the more and more I’m falling in love with wall coverings of all types. Do yourself a favor, next time you’re in town, stop by the Mart and give ’em a visit.

Well, I need to excuse myself and wipe the drool from my face. Ha!

G’ night my starry-eyed lovers

    I love this! Of course it’s probably ridiculously expensive, but definitely beautiful!
