Nestor Santa-Cruz

Interior Designer

Cuban-born designer Nestor Santa-Cruz is known for a style that is modern and restrained, yet classic. After leaving Cuba at a young age, he was raised in Central and South America where his passion for design blossomed, eventually studying architecture under Frank Lloyd Wright's disciple E. Fay Jones. Balancing time between his role as a design director at the international architecture and design firm Gensler and creating sophisticated residential interiors through his eponymous design studio, Santa-Cruz draws inspiration from both classical and contemporary references. From a Pierre Jeanneret daybed to a Diego Giacometti rug, scroll to see a selection of his favorite items on 1stdibs. Read more about the designer in Introspective.
