In the late fifties, Maharam sensed new opportunity and began supplying textiles for commercial interiors, helping pioneer the concept of contract textiles. Over the following three decades, the company flourished through a commitment to performance, value and service.

The fourth generation of the Maharam family has brought new definition and direction to the company, focusing on design and technology, and marrying past and present with textiles drawn from the archives of the twentieth century’s greatest creative talents, rich natural fiber textures, and next generation synthetics influenced by the latest runway trends.

Maharam has a relationship with A4studio based on a commitment to highly personal approach that breaks the computer generated aesthetic. Well respect designers have collaborated with Maharam over the years including Charles and Ray Eames, Paul Smith, Bruce Mau and Andree Putman. Maharam live in the same building as Ensequnce @ 251 Park Ave South, New York.

Ray and Charles Eames

The legacy of Ray and Charles Eames extends far beyond their classic furniture pieces. Taking a multidisciplinary approach to design long before that was the norm, the Eameses created over 100 short films between 1950 and 1982. Join DWR, in conjunction with Eames Foundation and Herman Miller, as we celebrate their film legacy. We’ll be screening seven films with a total running time of about 60 minutes. Attendees are encouraged to stay for a discussion following the screenings. New York screening details.
