Brad Pitt's Table for Two

Brad Pitt's Table for Two

Brad Pitt picks up a few pieces of contemporary “design art” furniture at the Design Miami/Basel fair held at the 1920s domed Markethalle in Basel, Switzerland on Tuesday.

The father-of-almost-six paid $293,000 for a hollow white marble rococo-style table by the Dutch designer Jeroen Verhoeven at the booth of the London-based Carpenters Workshop Gallery. The 4-foot-long “Cinderella Table,” from an edition of six, is hewn from a solid block of Carrara marble.

Mr. Pitt also ordered a rug made of aluminum thread from New York dealer Cristina Grajales, said director Elizabeth Murphy. The “Silver Sky” rug, created by Colombian designer Jorge Lizarazo and woven by the Colombian-based studio Hechizoo, will be priced at a rate of $175 per square foot.

Brad was also interested in a gold lacquer-coated Fiberglas sofa by Zaha Hadid, offered by London-based dealer Kenny Schachter at $300,000.

BTW, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANGELINA JOLIE! She turns 33 today.

    Flowers arrive at the Miraval Chateau in France on Wednesday, just in time for Angelina Jolie’s 33rd birthday!

    Before reaching the hands of the birthday baby momma-slash-actress, the bouquet was inspected by security officers.

    A day prior, a truckload of fries and salad was brought to the estate. You know, Brangelina, fries aren’t really French.

    Happy birthday, Angie! We hope the fries satisfied your pregnancy cravings!

    he looks so ugly what happened to this guy?he has aged so much and not in a good way and what the **** did he leave his partner who is about to e his babies on her birthday alone?but hope he cheats on her trough she deserves it
    ____

    The lady who gave him 6 children deserves to be cheated on by him? okaaaaay! At least she’ll be single and ready to mingle if that happens cause imo she could do better.

    Why spend so much on a freakin table ? with that money he could feed a lot of folks in Africa or perhaps build a few homes in NOla . he looks like such a tool shed.

    From auction to fair: Roman Abramovich brings Basel to life

    Chelsea FC owner joins Brad Pitt and Sheikh Saud Al-Thani at vernissage

    Billionaire businessman and owner of Chelsea Football Club Roman Abramovich and his partner Daria “Dasha” Zhukova caused a tremendous stir—more even than superstar actor Brad Pitt—when they arrived at Art Basel yesterday. This is believed to be the couple’s first appearance at an art fair, and came less than a month after Mr Abramovich spent $120m at the spring New York auctions on a Francis Bacon and a Lucian Freud.

    Also spotted at the fair was Sheikh Saud Al-Thani, cousin of the Emir of Qatar, who is a contemporary art collector although better known for his previous collecting on behalf of the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha.

    Dealers were thrilled by the presence of Mr Abramovich and Ms Zhukova, until now only known to buy at auction. “I was pleased to see him, looking at things very seriously,” said David Juda, (2.0/G1) of London’s Annely Juda Fine Art. “Some other collectors only go to auction.”

    A trio of Alberto Giacometti bronzes at Krugier’s stand (2.0/B4) are believed to have caught Mr Abramo­vich’s eye. The largest of the three, Femme de Venise I, 1956, is priced at $14m, while the smaller 1958 Femme Debout is priced at $8m. He is believed to be “seriously considering” a purchase, according to a source. Giacometti was one of the stars of the recent New York contemporary sales when a sculpture fetched a record $27.5m at Christie’s on 6 May. Mr Abramovich also paused to ­admire works by Marc ­Chagall and Alexej von Jawlensky at Galerie Thomas (2.0/ P2).

    His presence provided a welcome burst of confidence for dealers faced with fewer American collectors. “With the strong euro and weak dollar, Americans, even the rich ones, are complaining for the first time,” said New York collector and banker Gilbert Harrison, chairman of Financo.

    Donald Bryant, who owns works by Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly and Willem de Kooning, said finding value today requires selectivity. “The secondary market prices are out of control,” says Mr Bryant. “With the primary market you are more likely to get a real price.”

    The divide between gallery and auction prices has accelerated in recent years, boosted by new collectors. As auction prices have soared, retail art shopping can look like a bargain. PaceWildenstein had a painting by Chinese artist Zhang ­Xiaogang, which sold for under $1m, according to the gallery’s Susan Dunne. His record price at auction, for an older work, is $6.1m.

    “The big collectors come to Basel because they know they are going to be seeing great art,” said Sam Keller, the former Art Basel director, now head of the Fondation Beyeler. “But if you have a relationship with the dealer, you may well be able to buy that art cheaper than on the secondary auction market.”

    Ms Zhukova plans to open the Center for Contemporary Culture Moscow in September. She will mount international contemporary art exhibitions in an 85,000 sq. foot industrial 1927 bus garage designed by a noted constructivist architect. Mollie Dent-Brocklehurst, a former Gagosian director who has been hired to manage the centre’s programmes, escorted the couple through the fair.

    Mr Abramovich’s interest ranged from the organic and edgy—a $70,000 snake-like sculpture by Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto at Galerie Max Hetzler (2.0/Q2)—to a Picasso drawing at Acquavella Galleries. (2.0/R1). Having paid a record $33.6m for Freud’s Benefits Supervisor Sleeping, 1995, at Christie’s in New York last month, Mr Abramovich also priced the Freud paintings on offer at Acquavella.

    With the Euro 2008 football championship arriving in Basel on Saturday, some dealers who missed Mr Abramovich regretted the missed opportunity—and not only his buying power. “I wish I’d known he was here,” said dealer Roland Augustine of Luhring Augustine (2.0/P4). “I would have tried to get soccer tickets.”

    Bet their homes are decorated with unique pieces. Sure they have a safe area for the kids that is kid friendly. Brad looks happy and like he is really enjoying himself. Going to the races and now buying art that he loves. Sure he wish Angie was with him. Seems like they are still at the villa per JJB post earlier stating flowers were delivered.

    On Location
    Brad Pitt wasn’t the only actor on hand for the fair. Spotted ducking out of a taxicab near the Messeplatz was The Darjeeling Limited star Owen Wilson. Wilson has become something of a regular on the contemporary-art circuit. He was seen at last fall’s party for Damien Hirst at New York’s Lever House, then at Art Basel Miami Beach in December and now at Art Basel. If you squinted at a paparazzi pic of him in one of the celebrity gossip magazines a few months ago, you could see that the cover of the book he was clutching read “Duchamp.” One wonders what the man has been buying.

    enjoys it too because its so unique just like her , lovely . another common ground between them

  • excellent piece of art

    The table was carved from a solid 1-piece of Carrara marble. It is like a modern Michelangelo art work.

    Brad has a good eye for art.

    Happy Birthday, Angelina!

    Who was John Mayer ??? he was in HK last week for the opening of the biggest “Coach” boutique in Asia. Press from all over Asia were there for the opening but no one give a sh.t on him, he was not even mention. not even a single pic. taken. Even a has been like Orlando Bloom or Jude Law were stalk by the pap. when they were in HK.

    Maniston could slept from one guy to another, nobody care anymore. She’s a has-been, even at the height of her career back then, she was better known as Brad Pitt ‘s wife outside North America.

    Stop your delusion, just saw the trailer of her dog movies, which she was reprising the role of an older Rachel again,the same hair but frozen face, she look so old despite those reconstructed face and botox, no ones talking about that trailer, not interesting , no buzz .or whatsoever. Unlike Brad’s Benjamin Button and Angie’s Wanted created a lot of buzz, shot to no. 1 search on the web site when the trailer hit the internet.. IT’s so clear which film gonna bump.

    #215: Yah, hahaha…Brad has so many haters now…these are the people who had been waiting in vain for him to leave Angelina and go back to the ex. I’m sure if he had, he’d be the cutest guy in all your fantasies once more.

    Too obvious, trolls…sour grapes for three and a half years and you’re still not sated. If he was so ugly, how come you can’t stay away from his threads and can’t stop comparing him to all the ex’s boyfriends? How many have there been? Why aren’t you comparing them with each other instead of all of them to Brad?

    No matter what, you can’t have him! Angie owns his ass and yours too!!!

  • HE’S UGLY

    X deserves Perez left overs.

    Goes to show that money can’t buy good taste.

    +++++++++++++++++++

    Luckily for Brad he didn’t buy taste. He bought a beautiful marble table. Unlike you some people can afford furniture made out of materials other than plywood and cardboard or that come in a box and need to be assembled at home. Don’t hate on Brad just because you’re poor.

    Enough ! that’s what you said when she was officially sleeping with Vince Vaugh, Paul S, Ryan Kavanaugh. these guys are better, talented (I wonder what’s the talent of that model gigolo bf), younger, hotter , better in bed, bigger d.ck that Brad. Wait till that Pee boy dump her. can’t wait what would you said.

    Your Idol have hooked up with at least 6 guys within this 3 years afer the divorce, stop comparing Pee boy with Brad, compared him with the latest guy she slept with , Brian or Paul or Ryan or Vince who was the longest relation she had after Brad.
    Move on . Brad had his family and children, Jen had Norman and enjoying the series of boyfriends she slept with.
