Actor Brad Pitt can add furniture designer to his resume after creating an upmarket homeware collection.

The Ocean's Eleven star has teamed up with furniture maker Frank Pollaro for the range, which includes a bed, tables, chairs and a marble bathtub for two.

Pitt tells Architectural Digest magazine, "I've been doodling ideas for buildings and furniture since the early 1990s, when I first discovered Charles Rennie MACkintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright. I found Wright in college, when looking for a lazy two-point credit to get out of French. It forever changed my life."

Pollaro reveals the collaboration came about after he saw Pitt's drawings of furniture designs: "I asked him, 'Why don't we make some of this stuff real?' Brad said he thought that could be fun.

"We talk about design, about materials, about craftsmanship, about classicism, about modernism. He has a respect for the masters of design. I think we'll be doing this for a long time."

The unveiling of the items will take place from 13-15 November (12) in New York.
