Brad Pitt's Love of Design: Upcoming Furniture Line

Brad Pitt is best known for his devastating good looks, his ability to pull off the broad Irish accent of a bare-knuckle boxer and, more recently, a truly bizarre advertisement for Chanel No 5. However, in an entirely unexpected turn, Architectural Digest has reported on Pitt's ardent love of architecture and design, and all of this comes ahead of the release of a range of furniture that he has co-designed with high class furniture designer, Frank Pollaro. 

"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 and Pollaro met a few years ago, and as soon as Pollaro got a hold of one of Pitt's sketchbooks they began talking about making Pitt's 'doodles' into reality. Since then they have caught up with each other in meetings "lasting anywhere from seven to ten hours... We talk about design, about materials, about craftsmanship, about classicism, about modernism." Says Pollaro, "[Pitt] has a respect for the masters of design." Pitt himself says that he is "bent on quality to an unhealthy degree," and that "It just so happens Frank and I speak the same language. And we both have a predilection for far too much wine." 

The collection will include a marble bath-tub and a table, gilded entirely in 24 carat gold. With the unveiling of the pair's designs from November 13th to 15th, and then the release of the movie 'Killing Them Softly' in which Pitt stars, the actor-come-designer will barely get a moment to breath.
