Linda Pinto is behind her late brother’s design firm, Alberto Design Studio. For years, she has been respecting the legacy and honor of her brother, by living up to every expectation and prestige on the interior design world. Her apartment is located on a chic Left Bank street, home to celebrities such as LVMH chairman Bernard Arnault. Today, Paris Design Agenda would like to take you on an exclusive tour through this lavish home in the heart of Paris.
The living room is a magnificent experience, with a mix of gold and purple. There are vintage Jean-Michel Frank sofas, in a custom Manufacture Royale Bonvallet velvet; the lacquered armchairs are from the 1920s, and the cocktail table is by Yves Klein. There’s also an exquisite painting by Roberto Matta hanging over a 1970s console by Philippe Hiquily, while a Victor Brauner artwork is above an Art Deco screen by Jean Dunand.
At the master bathroom, it features an antique Breche marble counter over a bespoke and black-lacquered vanity. The statement piece is definitely the vintage slipper chair which is by Grosfeld House, while the sconces are from a Paris flea market, and the curtains are of a Créations Métaphores cashmere. Surrounding the bathroom, there are walls sheathed in Art Deco mirrors.
In the dining room of Linda Pinto’s apartment, she had the perfect collaboration with Jean Huguen. You can see the perfect Rossi table, surrounded by Patrick Gaguech chairs from Nimrod, and a magnificent 18th-century Chinese Famille Rose porcelain tableware. The custom pendant is by Hervé Van der Straeten, the Christophe Gaignon mirror is from Galerie Willy Huybrechts, and the silk rug is by Alfombras Peña.
In the living room, there’s an unbelievable and unique piece such as this bronze sculpture by Manolo Valdés. Perfectly embellishing the color palette of the setting, there’s a bespoke slipper chair and curtains of Veraseta silk. Many are the special and outstanding pieces on Linda Pinto’s apartment, and her involvement in the design world has something to do with it.
At the kitchen, there’s a noir ambiance, that’s so trendy at the moment. It almost feels like a black and white French film, with an amazing touch of retro vibes. On that note, there’s a diner-style dining set and black-plaster pendant light, that are all vintage. The range is by La Cornue, the porcelain parrot is antique, and the floor is in black and white marble. From Alberto Pinto Studio, Linda Pinto continues to stun with her achievements, and the proof is in her own home!
