The Decorator’s Home displays the vision of a fictional interior designer, tracking influences from commercial, North American Modernist designs of the 1950s to revolutionary, Soviet styles of the 60s and 70s. The titles of each piece in the collection bear the names of important Cuban architects and designers from the 1960s and 1970s.
