Designer and author Mario Buatta will discuss his own

Fifty Years of American Interior Decoration. After launching his firm in 1963,
"The Prince of Chintz" filled his client roster with an impressive list of celebrities and moguls; from Henry Ford II to Barbara Walters, from Nelson Doubleday to Billy Joel. Buatta oversaw the design for the Blair House in Washington, D.C., and he was responsible for the design of pop-star Mariah Carey's posh New York triplex that was once featured on a one-hour episode of MTV Cribs.
