Inspired by the Look of Mario Buatta

Affectionately known as the Prince of Chintz, Mario Buatta was one of the country’s leading interior decorators. Born in Staten Island, his career launched in the 1960s and spanned over 60 years, including clients like Mariah Carey, Billy Joel and Malcolm Forbes. His easily-identifiable rooms were marked by a definitively English country aesthetic, as well as his penchant for dressmaker details, lush colors, plump upholstery—and of course, floral chintz. Nearly 1,000 pieces that Buatta collected in his homes will be on display at Sotheby’s Mario Buatta: Prince of Interiors exhibit. Love the look? Channel his signature style with these fanciful, undeniably Buatta-esque pieces from Sotheby’s Home.
