Lorenzo Castillo is an interior designer from Spain known for his interior design style which balances the new with the classic. This is a designer who is not afraid of taking risks, abusing of colours, or even drama.
Before venturing into interiors, Madrid-based designer Lorenzo Castillo trained his masterful eye as an antiquarian. His treasure trove of Old World finds are housed at his eponymous shop conveniently located blocks away from the intrinsically-inspiring Prado art museum.
It is this insatiable appreciation for antiques and art energized with a contemporary flare for colour and print that has put him on the map, in just a handful of years, far beyond his native country.
He has a Degree in Art History from the Complutense University of Madrid, Art and Antiques by the Antique School of Madrid, Silverware and Jewelry by Museum Fine Arts in Boston and History of American Art at Columbia University in New York.
Castillo started its business as antiquarian and opened its first store in the centre of Madrid in 1992, soon customers began to ask him to design the interiors of their homes. As one of Europe’s most desirable designers, Castillo is cast to do projects everywhere from Florence to London to Rotterdam.
