Havana '58 was designed by Eric Cohler for Kindel's Designer Artist Series. Eric states, "When I was in Havana two years ago, I was touring amazing mid-century hotels from the 50s and 60s. It was all modernism with a nod to the Baroque, sort of an oxymoron. This table was created based on the collective memory of what I saw while in Havana." The tables are clean with a slight edge to them, which is shown in the scalloping on the top. The slight edge elevates the top and adds more dimension to the table. The table is made of Cherry and available in wood finishes or any painted lacquer.
“I believe in putting ‘living’ back into the living room in a family-centric space. That special occasion is now, so enjoy where and how you live.” — Eric
Eric Cohler designs carefully composed rooms that are luxurious, yet livable. Dubbed the original “Mixmaster” by Traditional Home magazine, he believes in creating layered interiors fusing disparate furnishings, fabric and art.
Cohler’s extensive experience in both residential and commercial interiors is seen in projects throughout the US, Europe, and the Caribbean. His award-winning product design includes textiles and furniture for Lee Jofa lighting for Visual Comfort, luxury fireplace surrounds for Chesney's and rugs for Stark. Cohler is proud that his Lee Jofa “Tyler Crewel” was selected for the White House family dining room.
Eric’s memoir, Cohler on Design, won the Elevate Award in 2016 for the best book on interior design. He is working on his next monograph, “Cohler on Art,” which is to be published in 2018.
