Saddened by the news of the passing of #mariobuatta this morning. As a kid growing up in the 80s with an interior decorator mother, Buatta’s influence was inescapable. Mom loved his use of Color, florals, and eclectic European antiques. The bold chintz drapes and Jacobean wallpaper from our living room is still fresh in my mind, and I know mom sewed up a few of Buatta’s window treatments from the vogue pattern book. As a designer myself, I see the influences of both in my work today (especially as I work to rage against the exhausting use of gray in mainstream design). My understanding of pattern and color mixing has as much to do with them as my formal education. Below is a nice tribute article from the folks @archdigest
It’s Monday everyone!!! Another new week, another new Military Monday! This week, did you know that the army was established on June 14th, 1775. With that date, that makes the army older than the country itself! *

Inspiration: Donald Judd - Plywood Chair.
In love with Judd's furniture! The use of color, honest materials, the play between edge and surface, the use of rigorous geometries and the aspiration to get to the essence of the typology are all lessons that we apply in our own furniture design.
