Brad Pitt - Sleepers: Brad Pitt Designs Bed As Part Of New Furniture Range

Well, this is an odd one. Brad Pitt has his fingers in plenty of pies - that’s for certain - though we didn’t know he was into furniture design.

The Hollywood icon has teamed up with Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann, Pierre Chareau and Paul Dupre-Lafon to design a range of furniture for Frank Pollaro’s New Jersey company, known for its accurate reproductions of Art Deco furnishings.

The new range includes around a dozen pieces, featuring tables, chairs and one “rather fantastic bed,” according to the Architectural Digest. The unveiling of the work will take place in New York between November 13-15, though Pitt has already been discussing the works. “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 began with the bed, an Art Deco piece with “lustrous tropical-hardwood frame that extends from its gently curved headboard.”

Asked how he feels about being called a furniture designer, Pitt cautiously replied, “Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.” In his day job, Pitt recently completed filming Ridley Scott’s forthcoming thriller The Counsellor, about a lawyer who finds himself in over his head when he becomes involved in drug trafficking.
