A Look at Mario Buatta’s Process


I was digging around in the archives of New York magazine and came across this moodboard by the iconic Mario Buatta. It was for a living room of a Manhattan penthouse with notes and sketches of the layout, fabric and trim samples and photos attached –  old school, which I love. I always enjoy seeing a designer’s process and thought you might too. (Click on the photo for a larger version.)

I then did some more looking around the web and I’m positive this is the living room in the sketch:

The rest of the apartment – excuse me, penthouse – is as lovely. Have a look:

Thanks so much for taking time to comment! I read every one and reply through my own comments.
