Club Havana

Memories of a time past.  Rich in history, putting modern life in a new context.

The 1920's is when Cuba's tourist trade really took off. Hotels, restaurants, night clubs, golf clubs and casinos sprung up in Havana catering to the rich jet-setters seeking luxury. Socialites, debutantes, celebrities like Ava Gardner and Frank Sinatra, and American mobsters came to play in the Cuban paradise.  As we enter into 2017 with Cuba re-opening up, so has our inspired thoughts of design and the "The Havana high life" of the 1920's - 1950's...

We have taken a few of our archival designs that encapsulate this vibrant and glamorous time in History and present to you our newest "Time" Capsule Collection - Welcome to Club Havana.
