Born in Casablanca in 1943, Alberto Pinto left his cosmopolitan hometown to attend the prestigious Ecole du Louvre in Paris. His career took off in the late sixties in New York, where he became a famous photographer for lifestyle magazines. Whilst redecorating his Manhattan apartment – where he hosted countless, memorable parties – he realized that interior decoration was his true calling. The apartment make-over was a sensation, and in no time Alberto Pinto became the go-to interior decorator in town.
Fifty years on, the Alberto Pinto agency has completed over 500 prestigious projects all over the world. The founder sadly passed away in 2012, but his legacy lives on through a talented, dedicated team of architects and designers.
“Haute Decoration interior design” in the words of Pinto: exceptional interiors made for “the great art of entertaining”. The harmonious combination of rich color palettes and eclectic styles speaks of luxury and beauty; refined materials and textures are sought after for their comfort and elegance. The furnishings – all beautifully crafted by skilled artisans – are displayed in carefully edited settings that exude a plush atmosphere.
The most magical decorating schemes conceived for high-profile, international clients. The agency’s residential projects include a spectacular penthouse in New York, a chalet in Gstaad, a riad in Marrakech, yachts and jets. The furnishings designed for each specific project are a tour de force of creativity paired with high craftsmanship; they encompass all elements of interior decoration, including outdoor furniture, ceramic objects and dinnerware.
