$55.00 Sale Save

by Emily Evans Berdmann

This book offers an unparalleled look at the design genius and life of Mario Buatta (1935-2018), one of America’s most influential decorators. Drawing from his vast archives—over 80 scrapbooks, hundreds of presentation boards, and letters from John Fowler and Sister Parish—it examines his influences, process, and evolution, as well as his final projects which weren't featured in the 2013 Rizzoli book. His signature use of ribbons, needlepoint, antiques, chintzes, porcelains, color combinations, and whimsy is discussed, as well as the mentors (Nancy Lancaster, Rose Cumming, Keith Irvine, and Albert Hadley) who helped shape his career. An essential read for design enthusiasts, it provides a comprehensive understanding of Buatta's design vernacular and how-tos.
