Alberto Pinto and his designs have been seen all over the world from London to New York to Paris and beyond. His eclectic style incorporates his knack for finding hidden antique treasures from various historical periods. A majority of his work is heavily influenced by baroque and byzantine stylings along with cultural influences from Morocco to India.
