Revered as one of the greatest decorators of the twentieth century, Alberto Pinto made his distinctive mark on the world of interior design thanks to his style, his extraordinary perception and understanding of locations and local cultures, and his perpetually renewed inspiration. Following in the master's footsteps, the Cabinet Alberto Pinto continues to give form to the wildest dreams, while preserving the founder's unrivaled precision to every element of design. This new volume presents the latest creations by the agency in its luxurious, comfortable, generous, and modern signature style. It provides a unique opportunity to discover exceptional interiors that have never been seen before-sumptuous hotels particuliers, lavish apartments, historical residences, and even a Middle Eastern palace-all of which reveal the quintessential Alberto Pinto style.
