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!

  • omg

    Brad is so multi- talented.

  • LUcian

    The man can do anything. sigh.

  • tamsin

    @omg:

    U, if “multi-talented” equals having money to pay a team of actual designers and ask them to come up with a line furniture for you to put your signature on, then I guess he is. LOL.

  • BW

    Brad also paints and does photography. I hope one day we will going to see his painting and photography exhibits.

  • who

    Does Brad come with the bed? Just kidding.LOL
    Great for Brad for making his passion happen. It’s what he does, when he’s passionate about something, someone (hi Angie!), he goes after it and makes it happen.
    I love the six-legged table he designed.

  • Ssshhii_baby

    gunHO=JL=Just LOser=retardiston!!! pretty soon we will see his furniture in the fatten tick’s new house in AD mag..place your bets now folks!! fatten tick+blood sucking leech=match made in la la la LOONIFER land!!! let the stalking begin!

  • Maryjane

    Why is Angelina’s most dating life before Brad a mystery? Something doesn’t go right here…

  • beautiful

    Brad’s furniture is beautiful. I love 24 k gold table, but I know it probably cost a lot. a girl can dream.

  • lol

    LOL@ Maniston hens are jealous of talented Mr. Brad Pitt.

  • god awful

    were these “doodles” on paper or in the toilet?

  • jim/dee

    @rachel:
    I agree, but, what makes you think Angie takes care of those kids???..She has nannys that do that job…She only uses them for photo opps!!…I have heard the kids are real terrors…JUST SAYING…..

  • Just Sayin

    Brad is a doer, if he wants to do something, he definitely makes it happen. Love him so much.

  • tamsin

    Loons are cowards and afraid of telling the truth. Most of them probably don’t even like or care for these furniture but they won’t say how they really feel about them because the almighty red thumb will fall upon them and thus label them “fake fans”.

  • Sweet

    The marble bath tub for two is nice. I bet he has one at home for him and Angie.

  • plez

    It is always funny that trolls jump on a Jolie Pitt thread so fast. Talk about being loons.
    .
    Can’t wait to see Pitt-Pollaro website. Hopefully Brad and Angelina will be in NY for the opening.
    .
    Is there going to be a NY premiere of KTS?

  • tamsin

    @Sweet:

    LOL no, he actually commissioned this design with Bambi in mind. Heroina and him haven’t been together in months.

  • jmho

    I love Brad when is artsy! Sexxy to the max.

  • jmho

    Trolls are having convulsions!

  • well

    Brad is such an artist. He just has the desires to create or build things.

  • tamsin

    @The Reason:

    Brad’s success = finally breaking free from Heroina. SAD LOONS!

    :D

  • Erica

    I remember before Brad met Angie, he said he hated to see people only saying what they wanna do but never did it. Angie also said something similar to before she met Brad. They have a lot in common though.

  • Snicker snicker

    Brad inadvertently calls Aniston boring again, lol . . .

    AD: The use of a continuous line—which is particularly evident in the bases for some of your tables—is something that can be seen in quite a few of your designs. What is it about an uninterrupted line that is appealing to you?
    BP: I can’t wholly articulate it, but it started with my introduction to Mackintosh’s Glasgow rose, which is drawn with one continuous line. But for me there is something more grand at play, as if you could tell the story of one’s life with a single line—from birth to death, with all the bloody triumphs and perceived humiliating losses, even boredoms, along the way. It’s just a story, in the end, of highs and lows. From beginning to end. But a personal story. And of course if you were to connect those ends, it becomes a continuum.

    Hey Tam. Damn this mofo looks high as a kite! I bet he hides his brick under the wine barrel ;)

  • wow

    Brad is so sexy and so talented, makes him even sexier.

  • tamsin

    @Snicker snicker:

    OMG thanks for that!!! Nothing in the dialog suggests the ex of course (loons are hung up on the ex, what a surprise), but the priceless admission of being inarticulate is a must-read. He has the capacity of expression of a 10 year old. BWAHAHAHAH.

    ============
    Unlike his ex, i did, i do, i will, but she never did. lmao.

  • Vanassa

    I really love Brad’s furniture design. but they are so expensive. I guess they are for riches.

  • tamsin

    @megatit:

    AHAHAHAH…. Oh LOL Mega I nearly choked. Yup I actually saw this pic days ago, and loons were predictably attacking Jared for “taking so long” to make a post about it. This is what I sa

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

    I sure missed you this weekend. Loons did too. :D

  • Eva

    Both Brad and Angie are too talented.

  • Do the math

    Troll needs to swallow some of ticky’s shampoo

  • tish

    OMG!! I think alot of modern furniture is for the rich b/c do you see the prices and what alot of the wealthy pay for their modern’ pieces”.
    Very expensive. I appreciate the art of modern furniture but my home is not modern by any means.

    My sister who is the wealthy one would love Brads stuff and be able to sit down and discuss the architecture of all of the pieces.

    I think it’s wonderful that alot of the money is goig to charity. Brad has a big heart of gold like his wife Angie.
    No wonder when they met they knew they were made for one another.

    Brad never ceases to amze me with all he does in a day.
    I didn’t get a real good look at his art so a going to go check it out.
    I am sure there are a few pieces i would love to own.

  • Joe

    Omg, poor frank has to smell brad ugh, he looks like he just woke up from a 3 day binge on the streets, homeless men look cleaner then him.

  • seriously

    Brad Pitt is perfection.

  • Ummm

    @wow:

    We must not be looking at the same picture!

  • Whamo

    The dude IS a piece of furniture! LMFAO.

    Oh look Early Grace is designing furniture, I guess pointing at blocks makes you a designer does it?

  • megatit

    , tamsin:
    Tam baby! You know I can’t disappoint these dumbazzas. As for Pitty…damn. I don’t think that nice glass of wine could do that, he was tokin’ it up! And is that a French braid? Lmao. So Baboonia is complaining about JJ posts again? When they pretty much own this thread AND JA threads? You’re right, maybe she could create her own Brand site, with diversions to tennis, MacDonald’s, etc. But 90% about one Ms. Jennifer Aniston.

  • geez

    I really don’t know how he finds time sleep. The man is amazing.

  • tish

    LMAO, all the trolls posts are gone under the red but they are too funny how pissssed off they are that Brad is doing so well.
    Or why are they here wasteing their time writing posts nobody bothers to read.

    Brad and Angie have very busy lives. Like Brad said all he did with Ticky was sit around smoke weed altho he is a gentelman and doesn’t mention how Ticky loved her coke. Their lives were hiding from the paps.

    As soon as Brad dumped ole Ticky he got himself the best life a man could ever dream of. Lots of children beautiful mamacita, film making, jewelry design, and now modern furniture design .

    Brad has a resume a mile long.

    While Lenny and Squiggs stay home , hide from the paps, get stoned and i wouldn’t doubt old Squiggy is wishing he too had a life. But oh well Ticky’s moolah was more important. I bet the runt is kicking his asss now .lol

    Go Brad…You show em what the Good Life Is!!!

  • tamsin

    Loons are as ignorant as the idols they worship. They just showed their utter ignorance about the subject of industrial design. Perhaps if Pothead and Heroina hadn’t dropped out of school then they wouldn’t find themselves today desperate for some business to invest in.

    Pothead’s amateurish and pretentious approach to industrial design can be seen throughout each unit. It seems that the actual designers that worked for him on this didn’t really explained him well how flawed his doodles (Knox’s?) were. Oh well, this is Mr. Bored again with his new pet project. A rich hippie can have his dreams if he can afford them.

    Simply put, no one with actual knowledge of the subject would think this fits a purpose, which is the key to market products for HUMAN consumption. If this is “art”, then learn this loons: “art” is not the same as “design”.

    I have to think back to what Aniston said after she kicked him out of the house. She said that she was finally able to buy comfortable furniture. Now we know what she meant by that. LOL!

  • megatit

    I love it when loons don’t bother to read our posts ….and then write a whole diatribe about not reading our posts. So easy.

  • tamsin

    @Whamo:

    Hey there Wham! Pitty has been playing Minecraft late at night and amidst his drunken stupor and hashish haze, he figured he could come up with really “gnarly furniture” for his maps. That’s the most logical explanation to me! XD

    We sure missed you over here! :)

    I don’t know if you see the first Brad’s interview with Entertainment Tonight. He was very young like 20 something. The reporter asked him what his plan to become super star. Brad said he’d rather do it than just talk.

    Angelina is perfection. brad needs to get over himself. he is nothing compare to angelina

  • Jeanie

    @woman spanish:

    That table is a conversation piece. For real.

  • tamsin

    @megatit:

    Oh ya that’s always funny. And did you see that the old memaw just outed herself as multiple-aliased loony freeek? It was just hilarious how it she made an ass out of herself by having to admit she posted under a different moniker. She would’ve been better off just blaming it on her senility and pretending she never wrote the whole stupid post. :D

  • IMO

    Brad’s furniture is not just furniture, it is ART.
