Life Looks Better in Color
Founded by the Spanish in 1519, Havana is the capital city of Cuba. Because of its location between the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea, it became a central hub for the Spanish conquest of the Americas, and grew to be the largest commercial center of the country.
As expected of a 500-year-old city, Havana boasts one of the widest diversities of architecture styles in the world, ranging from neoclassical to modernism. As the city expanded westward, distinct districts in the city began to develop, stemming from Old Havana, constructed in the highly ornamental neoclassical and baroque styles of architecture, to Vedado, the urban business district, as well as other smaller, suburban neighborhoods. Of these, Old Havana is the most renowned area, rich with history, tradition, and culture.
Havana’s aesthetic qualities are reflected in this season’s colorways, reminiscent of the textures and vibrant colors of the architecture, including a special collection of our Artisan finishes inspired by Old Havana’s colorful doors and textures of peeling paint found on doors throughout the area.
