Select Patterns from Maharam available at our Los Angeles Showroom. Purchasing Agency for Interior Designers, Architects, and Hotels. Maharam was founded in 1902 by Louis Maharam, a Russian immigrant. Through the generations, Maharam evolved from a source of theatrical textiles for costume and set design in the 1940s to a pioneer of performance-driven textiles for commercial interiors in the '60s. Maharam is recognized for its rigorous and holistic commitment to design as a leading provider of textiles to architects and interior designers. Maharam embraces a range of disciplines, from product, graphic, and digital design to art and architecture. Maharam's spaces are unified in both appearance and spirit. The Maharam Design Studio governs the research, engineering, design, and development of textiles for commercial and residential interiors. Balancing an appreciation of history with innovative interdisciplinary exploration, the studio focuses on four main themes: utility, technology, tradition, and luxury.
