Maharam textiles are included in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Stedelijk Museum, among others. Maharam is the recipient of the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design MuseumDesign Patron Award for its longstanding support of art and design.
Maharam’s M Series consists of multipurpose textiles in over 400 colors. This collection of solids represents one of the design studio’s greatest strengths: combining elevated aesthetics and performance at a practical price. M’s offer recycled content, abrasion resistance, bleach cleanability, and short leadtimes. Maharam periodically refreshes the palettes of these perennial textiles to ensure their continued relevance.
Celebrating the warmth, refinement, and resilience of natural fibres, Maharam’s comprehensive series of wool upholstery highlights the environmental, aesthetic, and performance benefits of wool through an extraordinary breadth of colour and soft textures. To achieve the unique aesthetic range, the design studio worked with specialised resources in historic textile regions throughout the world. Building upon wool’s reduced environmental impact as a rapidly renewable resource, the studio opted to avoid added chemical finishes and incorporate recycled content wherever possible.
