Balancing high and low creative touches with ease, Buatta reveled in lofty and lovable accents, gingered up odd juxtapositions, and had a field day with the multiple layers that make rooms memorable. Featuring toleware, treen, lacquer, chintz pottery, papier-mâché, shell work, animalia, decoupage and decalcomania (to name but a few...) the sale Objects, Treasures & Trifles is a cornucopia of chic as only Maestro Mario could conjure!
