Brad Pitt Launches His Own Furniture Collection
November 05, 2012
As if he isn't already busy enough with his thriving movie career and family responsibilities, Brad Pitt is adding yet another job to his resume, furniture designer!
The Moneyball star, 48, is teaming up with furniture maker Frank Pollaro -- who is noted for creating impeccable reproductions of Art Deco furnishings -- to design his own line, according to Architectural Digest.
Pitt will kick off his collection by debuting about a dozen pieces, including tables, chairs, and "one rather fantastic bed," during a public showing in New York from November 13-15.
"I've been doodling ideas for buildings and furniture since the early 1990s, when I first discovered [Charles Rennie] Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright, Pitt tells the magazine. "Actually, I found Wright in college, when looking for a lazy two-point credit to get out of French. It forever changed my life."
The star remained modest when asked how he feels about being called a furniture designer, saying, "Let's not get ahead of ourselves." For his part, Pollaro predicts that the new venture with Pitt will be long and successful. "I think we'll be doing this for a long time."
