Havana Haven

  • Dago and Laura love to entertain. The living room is a welcoming space where they receive friends.
  • Get the Look: The Late Sofa designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec was purchased at Vitra in Madrid and the Shell Chair is by Hans J. Wegner. The two photographs are by Cuban photographer Felipe Dulzaides and the coffee table and floor lamp are from an antique store in Havana.
  • Dago and Laura's son loves to play in the family room which also doubles as a yoga and pilates studio for mom. The blue wheelbarrow is a Los Carpinteros piece and the orange Dar Chairs are by Charles and Ray Eames. The art above the sofa is by Cuban artist Alejandro Cam.
  • Adjacent to the living room is the office and library with a collection that includes art, architecture and design books as well as catalogues from Los Carpinteros' expositions .
  • When the couple renovated, the kitchen grew to accommodate open shelving. Dago made the kitchen table out of his grandmother's old sewing machine.
  • The dining room gets its punch from the orange covered vintage chairs which look out onto a lush back garden and fountain. The vintage dining room table and chairs are from a local antique shop. The oil painting is by Cuban artist Carlos Quintana .

Renowned Cuban artist Dago Rodríguez (aka one half of the Los Carpinteros duo) creates art for a variety of patrons all over the world. The Vedado, Havana home he shares with his wife, kite boarding instructor Laura Lis, is as artfully styled and cool as hell.
