"An Inescapable Actor Of Design"

An interior designer with extraordinary talent and ability to create some of the world's most opulent and sumptuous rooms for private residences,castles,hotels,private jets and yachts.


A creator of 8 design books including 2 new beautiful books about tables.

Anyone obsessed with great design knows the name Alberto Pinto. He is no stranger to the design world. A quick review of his portfolio and you can see why is revered as "An inescapable actor of interior design". I am a huge fan of his classic designs featured above. A Frenchman born in Morroco in 1945, Pinto has built a reputation as a master purveyor of applied arts. From superbly crafted furniture and textiles, to fine ornamental porcelain china, Pinto's remarkable eye for design comes through his work and the result is breathtaking. He studied at the Ecole de Louvre in Paris. From there, he moved to New York City and started a photography agency focusing on architecture and interior design. In 1986, he opened his first interior design firm in Paris. He is a big admirer of the legendary designer David Hick's creative aestetics. He also credits his passion for creating a sense of volume and using amazing colors to his collaborations with famous architect Luis Baragan. His visionary spread to a greater audience when he began reporting for the Conde Nast group's House And Garden magazine. For more information and photos of Pinto's work visit

He's really a master. I am always drooling on his design. They are also a source of inspiration for my home.

Thanks for sharing this and to remind me. It was a long time since i went on his website.

I can see why you'd be drawn to Alberto Pinto's masterful designs, Julio. Your own design sensibility and passion for quality and opulence remind me of his.

Thank you for sharing the stunning images and providing the information about his books.
