Collection Alberto Pinto
The main reason I look forward to fall each year is that there are so many wonderful events on the calendar. It’s prime time for fashion, design, and art events including auctions. One of the most anticipated is Collection Alberto Pinto at Christie’s in Paris this September. It will be feature, furniture, art, objects, and a large selection of porcelain, tableware, glassware, and linen from his extensive collection for events and dinner parties. The sale will coincide with the Biennale des Antiquaires so you might want to book your trip now.
“Alberto Pinto was born in Casablanca to Argentine parents. After studying at the Ecole du Louvre in Paris, Alberto Pinto set off for New York City where he created a photo agency specialized in architecture and decoration.
During several years Alberto developed his taste for interior design, notably when he had the chance to do photo shoots for the press group Condé Nast and in particular for the magazine House & Gardens, in Mexico working alongside architect Luis Baragan where he discovered the sense of volume and the power of color, in Italy where he deepened his understanding of design, in England alongside the talented interior designer David Hicks and again during his travels to India.
At the end of the ‘60s, Alberto Pinto, took upon himself personally to design the interior of his own NYC apartment and following the rush of requests to do others, led him to create his interior design firm in Paris, where according to him you can still find to this day the most skillful and talented artisans and craftsmen.
Alberto Pinto Interior Design appropriates the eclectic taste of its international clientele in adjusting its decors to each of their desires all the while adding elegance which creates a balance within such opulence. Classical or contemporary, intimate or gigantesque, at ease in all disciplines with the leitmotiv being a feeling of comfort and an expectation of the highest quality.
Following Alberto’s passing in 2012, his sister Linda, having always worked at his side, naturally took over the management of Alberto Pinto Interior Design.”
