Literary Luncheon with Mario Buatta

Know as the “Prince of Chintz,” Mario Buatta has long been the creator of interiors for American Royalty, including two presidents, Malcolm Forbes, and Billy Joel. Mario joined us on October 15th at the Briscoe Western Art Museum for a presentation of his book,Mario Buatta: Fifty Years of American Interior Decoration, which follows his life from his professional start in the 1950s department stores, to his most recent projects, which include some the country’s finest residences. Buatta shared his thoughts on contemporary decorating, stories from his colorful and adventurous career, and generous dose of his mischievous humor. Guests also had the opportunity to purchase books and have them signed by Buatta.
