BiTTT is honored to have Mario Buatta as our guest speaker on Tuesday April 24th, 2012. This is a MUST attend event.
Mario Buatta is one of America’s foremost decorators. He was born in New York, studied architecture at Cooper Union and attended Parsons School of Design in Europe. After an apprenticeship in the decorating department of B. Altman & Co., he became associated with several decorating firms including Elisabeth Draper, Inc. and then formed his own decorating company.
A multi-talented and internationally renowned designer, Mr. Buatta has created his own unmistakable style which he calls, “The Undecorated Look.” His general approach is to provide a maximum of comfort by using an expertly balanced mixture of contemporary and antique furnishings. These furnishings are placed against backgrounds which reflect his subtle color mix. The result is that the eye is more aware of the overall glow of tint, rather than individual
colors. The same is to be said for his use of chintzes with textures, patterns and stripes. His unerring sense of detail, as well as the selection and quality of his furnishings is apparent in every room. He has designed homes for many
celebrity’s such as Mariah Carey. Please join us for an evening with one of the worlds top designer’s on April 24th 2012 from 6:30pm- 8:30 pm at the Anthony Lawrence Design Center located at 53 west 23rd Street, 9th Floor, New York, NY 10010.
