The designer is acclaimed for his sumptuous rooms that layer fine antiques, confectionary curtains, and sublime colorations, creating an atmosphere of lived-in opulence. This lavishly illustrated survey—filled with images taken for the foremost shelter magazines as well as many unpublished photographs from the designer’s own archive—closely follows Buatta’s highly documented career from his professional start in the 1950s working for department store B. Altman & Co. and Elisabeth Draper, Inc. to his most recent projects, which include some of the country’s finest residences. Buatta shares exclusive insights into his process, his own rules for decorating, and personal stories of his adventures along the way.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

From Organisation to Decoration: An Interiors Reader is a reader for students, scholars and practitioners interested in the theories, processes and principles of the aspects of the theory and practice of interior architecture, interior design and interior decoration. The book is divided into three parts, which reflects the focus of the different strands. It aims to contextualise, explore and clarify past and present debates in all three areas of the field of interiors. Each section is concerned with the processes, histories and ideas that shape the interior and includes discussions about development, identity, organisation, conservation, material and surface concerns and attitudes towards the host building. A broad range of writings are included – cultural theory, historical essays, scholarly papers, commissioned texts, extracts from books, interview transcripts, and magazine and newspaper articles. A case study and an annotated guide to further reading concludes each section, thus offering a succinct overview of the theories and ideas underpinning the interior for the beginner, as well as providing stimulation for students and practitioners in the field.
