Brad Pitt: Furniture Designer for Pollaro!

Brad Pitt: Furniture Designer for Pollaro!

Brad Pitt has a new gig – furniture designer!

The 48-year-old actor has teamed up with designer Frank Pollaro for a new line of furniture – Pitt-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,” Brad told Architectural Digest. “Actually, I found Wright in college, when looking for a lazy two-point credit to get out of French. It forever changed my life.”

The pair decided to work together after Frank visited Brad‘s home to install a commissioned piece and saw his sketchbook.

“I asked him, ‘Why don’t we make some of this stuff real?’” Frank said. “Brad said he thought that could be fun.”

The Pitt-Pollaro line will be unveiled at an event in New York that takes place November 13 through 15. If you can’t make it, make sure to check out pitt-pollaro.com on November 11 for the website launch!

    a venture sounds good to me. i’ll be interested to see. busy, busy guy. makes me feel like such a slacker seeing how productive the jolie-pitts are. the world would be a much better place if just a fraction of the population were as industrious and socially-conscious as they are. with their money, they could just sit back and vacation all over the place when they’re not making movies, most celebrities do.

    Oh LOL thanks Jared, you posted the fugliest pic of the drug addict to date for all the loons to see.

    Loons, this is your idol. Feast your eyes on the hipster/hobo/former actor/wannabe artist that he’s become. Hahahaha.

  • Ssshhii_baby

    waving hi to all the Jolie-Pitt fans from around the world!!! special shout out to all the east coast fans!!! look at the beautiful Bradley! when you have a good woman by your side, there’s no where to go but up!! he is achieving all his passion and dreams! can’t say enough how blessed they are to have each other! he is not limiting himself to just acting, producing, designing! Angie is very proud of her husband! love them!

    @Hmm:

    Of course it’s unoriginal, the man doesn’t have a single idea of his own, that’s why he’s constantly trying to befriend architects and artists whom he claims to be a fan of. Everything he does is directly “influenced” by them. In typical celebutard fashion, he commissions others to do their designs and then stamps his name next to them.

    By the way, a very amateurish mistake that Pothead’s team made with this “furniture” line: “art” and “design” are two different concepts. When designing a product for human consumption, functionality should always be more important than aesthetics. In other words, style over substance is no good! LOL, such a wanna-be.

    French are supreme!! That’s why Brad is finally going to marry a woman of french heritage.

    Good ole Jared/Chris…about 4 days late with this news…but…we got to see Ticky and Hair Boy last week practically in real-time, so it’s all good…

    repost –

    @Truth:

    Yup I did. I have one question though. Yes, we all know that he’s a parasite and he only worked on this because he got the idea from someone else, but what did he based these designs on? Knox’s doodles???? BWAHAHAHAHA.

    Ang OMG- does he look like shhiitt in that photo!! This is the Pothead that loons continue to refuse to see, the self-absorbed drunktard junkie who is bored and hates his life. The signsare all there: puffy eyes, a red nose (typical of alcoholics, btw), lethargic, greasy hair, filthy looking. No wonder Chanel has distanced itself from him.

    The only actor / designer that I know is Anton Yelchin ( who i particularly love) making a chair in Like Crazy. :)))

    “For me there is something more grand at play, as if you could tell the story of one’s life with a single line.”
    Jesus. Between this sentence (it’s furniture not Chanel!), that shirt, and the tacky pieces itself, I honestly don’t know what’s worse.

    Less brad more angelina.too old for that hairstyle brad. cut your hair old man

    @Evelyn: you forgot justin timberlake. Bwha another egomaniac.

    “Nothing unique or original here although I am sure he is so insulated from criticism he will never know and will continue to consider himself a cutting edge designer of importance.”

    @ Passing Poop # 21

    Since you’re so unhappy with the way Jared / Chris manage their own blog to the point of calling them sellouts and since it bothers you how much then take to report on your idols, why don’t you use your food stamps to purchase the photos yourself and publish them on your own blog? I promise nobody will miss you, poopy dear! :D

  • Amanda

    Because the world doesn’t get enough of Brad Pitt what with his movies, his family, his Chanel endorsement. We need his furniture too.

    New pic from Jennifer’s Thanks & Giving ad for St. Judes – due to be released on the 16th of the month:

    “I love being a part of the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign. It’s a great way for me to help give families the hope and strength they need to help their children fight the battle for their lives” said Jennifer Aniston. “It was so much fun being with my new friends Mae and Bailey to film our commercial this year. These children are such an inspiration to me.”

    @Gun:

    Ahahahahaha.. you know that would be true but I don’t think he’s ever looked at her sober. So perhaps he just stopped drinking and the bat heart’s powder effect has finally worn off? He must be wondering what happened to the last 7 years of his life. :D

  • blackmoney

    So Brad, when are you going to stop playing the so down to earth man?? With these creeps is very difficult I know.

  • Truth

    Definitely my favorite comment re: his furniture. Sure to piss off passing through…even though she knows it’s truth.

    Between the Chanel commercial and this article, I really feel like he and Goop were soulmates. They should have never broken up. Can you image what a force of pretentious intellect they would’ve been? It would make James Franco weep.

    @rachel:

    Even his fans are start to hate him.LOL

  • Rachel

    I really don’t think this will be a BS project. He has a genuine interest in architecture that has been well documented over the years, so it’s something he actually passionate about, not just slapping his name on it like every other celebrity. so I approve

  • Dc

    I am a little bit behind because of hurricane Sandy.

    I don’t think there’s any new pics of Jolie-Pitts. Anyway this is great news – way to go Brad – a man of many talents. Love him and his family.

    @ nameless loon # 31

    LOL at “jealous”. Nameless loon, can’t you think of anything better to say? It’s your big momma whining, not me. I’m simply calling her out on how she bites the hand that feeds her.

    JJ is a neutral blog, do you loons expect preferential treatment after the way you’ve chased out every other celebrity fan, including the original fans of Pitt and Jolie?

  • Rose

    Anytime the fans see the trolls out in force we know there is something good being said about Brad or Angie. Brad furniture will be sold in a limited amount and the money will be going to his charity. Brad and Angie are always thinking about how they can be of help. Trolls are always think about how they can bring them down. It’s going on 8 years and they cannot touch this man and his beautiful family.
    Brad I love your furniture. If I was a rich woman I would buy the 17ft dining table, the bathtub, the gold coil side table and the white easy chair.
    The trolls will be talking nonsense, but they cannot afford these pieces so what does their negative comments accomplished, nothing.

  • Truth

    They now call Pittstain, Mr.Goop. Ha!

    It’s always sad to see little kids fighting for their lifes, hope the beat this illness, btw that picture is
    really cute and bless Jen for helping out…

  • awwww

    love Brad’s furniture line. cool.

  • tamsin

    @Truth:

    You know, the only reason I can come up with about their lack of embarrassment is that they’re on drugs, just as much as Pitty is -just look at his face-. I know some of them are senile too. It must be methane gas from their farts, and inhaling mold particles after living in basements for so long. :)

  • blackmoney

    He’s also stealing our money with his nature loving documentary movies and giving it to the third world. Brad please work more on your roles and let us enjoy without stealing our savings.

  • blue light special

    about as impressive as Martha Stewart’s venture into furniture

    tish, i heard from senior and she thankful for the concern and prayers.
    thank you for your inquiring. i sent your regards to her.
    hugs.

  • Lily

    I wish I could afford to buy them. I love some of them. Brad is exploring his artistic side.

  • And So We Begin….

    I’m sorry, but that furniture is not attractive, and looks uncomfortable. Let us not forget that this furniture is only for the elite in society…..the one’s with zero taste that is. His “partner” in this furniture thing stated that the furniture will be “north” of extremely expensive, meaning tens of thousands for a single chair. I’m sure we will soon read how profits will go to some charity some where, but as usual, we will never know the split. These people have been baffling you loons with their bs for so long, you have no skills in detecting it. Either way, if he does donate some of the proceeds, it’s still something, just wish that furniture was tolerable to the eyeballs! Just plain ugly!

  • http://dlookingo rachel

    Angelina needs to be in more movies. brad is all about himself and let angelina take care of the kids. he is old and look like dbag

  • tamsin

    @Gun:

    What career? He doesn’t have any! After his cameos in 12 Years A Slave and The Counselor, he doesn’t have anything lined up, just like his hor.

    I keep wondering why loons still claim their movie stars when they’re very much unemployed and over the years it became increasingly hard to find work.

    The Chanel bust just solidified his status as a hasbeen. Leave the jewelery and high end fashion products for the likes of Clooney, Deep, RDJ, Hamm or Craig. As I said before, I see a future for him doing informercials.. I have a feeling he’d do very well peddling Happy Chops! :D
