Furniture Line Launched By Brad Pitt

Submitted by on November 5, 2012 – 11:56 am Comments

Well, Brad Pitt probably isn’t happy earning millions from just making movies, and therefore recently decided to launch his own furniture line. He basically has teamed up with furniture maker Frank Pollaro to create a collection of furnishings. The line includes a dining table, a cocktail table, several side tables, a few club chairs and a bathtub for two in Statuario Venato marble.

Architectural Digest has revealed that, Pitt’s designs “incorporate the idea of a single line” and “that line can be geometric, as in the case of a 17-foot-long wood dining table” or “sinuous, as with a glass-top side table that features a wispy spiraling metal base finished in 24k gold”. As it turns out, Pitt is an architecture buff, who loves great designs. “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 was quoted as saying. “Actually, I found Wright in college, when looking for a lazy two-point credit to get out of French. It forever changed my life” he added.

 In fact after Hurricane Katrina, Pitt through his Make It Right Foundation had help create quality affordable housing in New Orleans, with the help of well-known architects. Pitt on his part was hesitant to answer as to how he felt about this new tag of a furniture designer. For his furniture line, Pitt has been putting in seven to ten of his time, for each of his frequent meetings with Pollaro. He also describes himself as “bent on quality to an unhealthy degree”, which is understandable, as it’s his reputation that is at stake.

Pitt’s collection is slated to be unveiled Nov. 13 – 15 in New York. Pitt is taking the whole furniture line thing one step at a time, and doesn’t really want to get ahead of himself, till things actually fall into place. It would be interesting to see if Angelina too gives her input, as far as the furniture line is concerned. Pitt really seems passionate about this new venture of his and if things work out, here is another venture that would earn him millions.
