Mario Bautta Auction UPDATED

Horse Country Chic has alerted us to the auction of Mario Buatta's estate next week, which will include his needlepoint pillows.

His chintz fabrics were Must Haves in the 1980s and I think his style will come back again.  Sotheby's is holding the auction.  You can browse the two part catalogue online but the auction items will be on display in Manhattan before the sale if you are in the area.
