Last week, the New York Design Center and 1stdibs hosted a celebration of design industry legends Ellie Cullman and Mario Buatta. The two signed copies of their recently published books.

The Detailed Interior: Decorating Up Close with Cullman and Kravis takes a look at everything from classic NYC pied-a-terres and townhouses to vast Connecticut estates, airy Floridian mansions to luxury ski retreats. Graceful and balanced, each project created by interior design firm Cullman & Kravis is illustrated with lavish full-color images, illuminating the effect of the room as a whole as well as providing close-up shots of precisely detailed spaces.

Similarly, Mario Buatta: Fifty Years of American Interior Decoration is filled with shots taken for the foremost shelter magazines as well as unpublished photographs from the designer’s own archives.  Buatta shares his insights into his process, his own rules for decorating and personal stories of adventure along the way.

The evening affair also included a little shopping – with a percentage of the proceeds of the evening’s sales benefitting the New York School of Interior Design.
