We know we cover celebrity-created fashion, but this we couldn’t resist! Word on the fashion avenue is… Brad Pitt is coming out with his own furniture line. The actor teamed up with furniture maker Frank Pollaro, creating a furniture line consisting of a dining table, cocktail table, side tables, club chairs, and a bathtub for two made from Statuario Venato marble.
Pitt told Architectural Digest that he has been doodling for furniture and buildings since about twenty years ago;
“I’ve been doodling ideas for buildings and furniture since the early 1990s, when I first discovered [Charles Rennie] Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright. Actually, I found Wright in college, when looking for a lazy two-point credit to get out of French. It forever changed my life.”
Pitt has created the “Make It Right” Foundation to build quality affordable housing for the Hurricane Katrina survivors in New Orleans, and the foundation hired prominent architects for the task. Despite his attempt at design, Pitt is yet to approve his new title as ‘furniture designer’. He says, “Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.”
Check Brad Pitt’s collection which will be unveiled in New York on November 13.
