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 AlbertoPinto.com.
