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!

    That is expensive GC but gorgeous. I see another poster put the pic of Angie laying on it . It’s supposed to be a little less money that
    Brad paid for his. Apparently Brad got a deal on it.
    LOL a deal is probably still an outragous price to moi.

    Do you know if Brad owned that piece when he was with Ticky?
    if so, even tho ole Ticks hated Brad’s modern style she is such a jealous bytch that pic would have burned her butt.. will always burn her butt b/c itis a pic that you see quite often ….lol GOOD!

    If you’re Brad Pitt, you can marry Angelina Jolie. If you’re Brad Pitt, you can become the first-ever male spokesmodel for Chanel and release a slew of melodramatic commercials. If you’re Brad Pitt, you can revive your Legends of the Fall hair in said commercials and no one questions it. If you’re Brad Pitt, you can transform into Bob Marley and again, no one questions it. Essentially, if you’re Brad Pitt, you can do anything, which is why the actor has decided to become a serious furniture designer.

    According to Architectural Digest, the unveiling of Pitt’s debut furniture collection is going down November 13 through 15 in New York and will consist of “about a dozen pieces—tables, chairs, and one rather fantastic bed—alongside 45 or so works by his collaborator, Frank Pollaro, whose New Jersey firm is noted for its impeccable reproductions of Art Deco furnishings.”

    Brad Pitt’s ‘World War Z’ Trailer Sneak Peek is Here http://bit.ly/l0W4B6

  • Liv

    As long as Brad comes with the bed i will buy it.

  • bizzy bee

    I walked in a patient’s room and she had Entertainment Tonight on and I saw all these zombies falling over themselves and it suddenly clicked, “Oh, World War Z!! A fan mentioned they’d seen that scene in a preview.”

    ET will have more on the scene Thursday.

  • Craigypants

    Brad and Angelina arn’t together anymore, it’s just a business arrangement. For the brand.

  • awwww

    World War Z preview looks amazing.

  • Eva

    I am scared of zombies, but I will definitely be seeing Brad’s WWZ

  • Ms Piggy & Kermit

    Ha ha ha! Don’t be a hater Piggy. All Kermit can do is spend Piggy’s money.

    Now Brad does not waste time on stupid things, he is enlarging his family and his empire. More power to Brad and Angelina.

  • bizzy bee

    Some people think about what they will do in life, talk about it, but never DO it. Either because they aren’t sure of themselves, circumstances hold them back, or they’re just lazy.

    Not Brad. When he dreams it, he goes out and gets it done. No matter what it takes.

    Loving the centipede leg table, beautiful. I would love to see what an entire house designed by him would look like. I would imagine it would be very modern and minimalist, with a Japanese feel to it.

  • Bambi

    Brad is so talented! I especially like the bed, and I am proud to say that I had a small role in perfecting its design. You see, Brad put a prototype bed in my flat. Then, we gave it several vigorous trials, if you know what I mean.

  • Brad’s Drawlins

    he done bees a geneyus

  • Jennifer is crazy!

    Jennifer must be here foaming with jealousy. Her boyfriend is not talented like Brad. Her life is boring.

    Can’t keep a good man down and that must have been one of the many good reasons why Brad dumped Jennifer.

    Brad is an inspiring man, always creating and evolving just like Angie! Life is so not boring at the Pitts household.

  • awwwww

    @tweet
    So Brad and Angie are staying in a mansion in Kent,UK.

  • Jolie’s Got Gold

    Ai yai yai! You go Brad! Make the world a better place. Lots of peace and love to you, Angie and your children.

  • Maniston

    Maybe Justin can take some classes at Michaels, lol! He might learn a thing or two. Jennifer is pathetic. She only has time to dwell on her botox and new hair products for her fried & split end hair. I tell you she is empty head and empty life, just a waste.

  • J Aniston Evil to Brangelinas

    Please leave this thread Jennifer. You are an evil ugly woman. Why you be so mean to Angelina and the children? You are sick calling children names. That girlfriend of yours Chelsea is a sick animal calling names to these children too. Jennifer is a sick person and so unkind.

  • Julia

    More power to you Mr Bradley! The creative designs are so inspiring. So impressed, totally. Hope you and your family a blessed and bountiful Thanksgiving!

    @Passing Through:

    #173, PT I wonder how Jane Pitt feels that the guy she so staunchly supports is using tabloid lies to slander her DIL. The Republithugs are showing their true colours. I try my best not to patronize any business that support the repubs. I now have to add Ameritrade to the list.

  • LOL for the win

    LOL, all i do is look at this pic of him and LOL LOL LOL

    @yap:

    I am more and more convinced Tamsin is Ticky :)

  • groundcontrol

    Hey diana, hope your life is getting back to normal.
    .
    I voted Thursday since I was in the area of the main early polling place for a board meeting. It was pretty fast and I needed to get it out of the way. I have a busy schedule later today Tuesday – for which I have been procrastinating terribly.
    .
    Normally I really enjoy voting on Election Day – it’s usually a beautiful crisp walk through lovely leafy streets to my local polling place. After we usually go for an early dinner at a great tavern in Georgetown. It makes me feel patriotic and lets me sneer at the rethugs trying to still politic you as you walk past them on the way in. Great eye rolling time.
    .
    I’m pretty confident but then I was confident in 1980, 1984, 1988, 2000, 2004, and worst of all 1972! LOL!
    .
    When I was a lobbyist it was much worse for me – you couldn’t hide from a bad election result. Now I can just bury myself in my work and ignore it.
    .
    Good luck all you voters.

  • Pitt Gross, unwash at last

    If his chanel ad didn’t prove how up his own butt and cheesy he is these lame arse designs sure do. Isn’t it funny that a father of six has free time to ~design furniture~. Lmao

  • what happened to him, Yuck

    How very under-whelming. I had to look twice at the pic of Brad to make sure it was really him. What has happened to this man? Looks like his over-inflated ego has taken over. This totally smacks of the horrible Chanel ads as well.

  • Brad aint shiitttttttt

    look at this cheater ho and his baby mama looking all gross and dirty

    now he is broke and turned to a furniture designer, hahahahaha

    That photo cracks me up. He looks like a homeless drunk. Is that, a ponytail? Go figure, this is apparently what he looks like when he’s wandering down the house. Poor homewrecker Angelina

  • laughing stock brad/babymama

    Brad is high out of his mind and needs a bath, the furniture is ugly and overpriced, who would pay $45,000 for that ugly chair shitttttt

    $45,000 for a chair…$45,000 FOR A CHAIR…gulp! Wow…I really have NO idea how the other half lives…if I paid $45,000 for a chair Brad Pitt better be sitting in it….naked with his tiny weeny stick!!!

  • plz

    I don’t know why the trolls keep whining about Brad’s furniture as if they can afford them. Brad’s furniture are not for you. hahaha.

  • Rose

    @plz: Good morning plz, how are you today. Could not sleep so I checked in and saw you might be on. Well, it’s day 9 after Sandy. I can see progress being made for those people in dyer distress. I would like to thank all the hard working people who are working non stop to make life better to those suffering. These people are too many to mention but their hard work is appreciated beyond words. I know it’s hard for some people not in this region to understand how much destruction was done in ny, nj, ect. It’s hard to hear people say that it will take time when you are sleeping under six comforters and blankets, three sweaters, in the dark and in the cold and you are still cold and have not eaten for days, you don’t want to hear it takes time. These people know it takes time, but they don’t want to hear it. But this thinking always infuriates me.
    As Gov Cuome said when you are in this situation
    you don’t want to hear excuses people want results.
    I thank God I and my family are fine but I still worry for those not so fortunate.
    I heard on the news that the governor said we are going to need tens of thousands of long term housing for the displaced. This should give all of us the magnitude of Sandy’s destruction. And this is just in New York.

    More than 800,000 thousands still in the dark in NJ.

    The Red Cross Mobile Kitchen is up and running and has been feeding thousand since yesterday. That’s a god sent for those needing their services.
    There are warming stations on LI where people can go to warm up during the day but some still have to go back home to a cold darken
    home. lots of people who have heath are opening up their homes to those who are not so lucky so they can take a hot shower or a hot meal. Those people have such a great spirit of giving and love.

    I know some will not be interested in my post but I just had to do something while I was awake. I know we are not normal yet.

  • nasra

    @Truth: Mannistons in full force!! Go Away!

  • Rose

    I saw this poster up on this page saying, “what happened to him, yuck”. I would like to say nothing happened to Brad, he is a man living a full life doing what he wants with his life. If he wants to he can look like a fashion plate every day. That does not make him happy. His Ken Doll days are over. Brad is living a purpose driven life. My father was an artist. He used to draw and sculpture and most days, his art would take up an entire day. When you are creative that’s how your brains work. Not everyone will understand that.
    When Brad needs to look hot you give him an half hour and there will be no one, and I mean no one looking better than him. So it’s all good, let Brad do his thing and the haters can continue doing their thing hate.

    While haters are hating Brad and Angie helping others to a better life.

    @reggie: The nambe here is BRAD PITT no one gets way with it!

    Jennifer must be here foaming with jealousy. Her boyfriend is not talented like Brad. Her life is boring.

    >>>>>>>>>
    .
    TRUTH IS: jenho’s boyfriend, Gigolo is NOT talented – full stop. He’s a pretender, a wannabe. He’s been in the film,TV business for 20 years or more now. What has he achieved as an actor or writer or anything else? The one thing he has full writing credit for – Rock of Ages was PANNED by critics. I believe the film was based on the HIT THEATRE PRODUCTION Rock of Ages and Gigolo STILL MANAGES TO C0CK IT UP!! YAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!
    .
    After having my attention drawn to JONNY LEE MILLER by a troll, I now want to give JONNY LEE MILLER a shout out!! I googled what he had been up to. He’s been working steadily all these years. He may not have the charisma of a Brad Pitt, but then how many stars do? But to be working steadily, it shows he has TALENT. He starred in Eli Stone went for 2 seasons and the series was well reviewed.
    .
    JONNY LEE MILLER’s latest TV series ELEMENTARY with Lucy Liu seems to be getting good reviews. He’s Sherlock to Lucy’s Watson and it sounds intriguing. I might even watch TV again as I like BOTH stars, JONNY LEE MILLER and Lucy Liu.
    .
    (in case anyone is wondering why I’m capitalising JONNY LEE MILLER’s name, it’s because I’d like to add to the publicity he’s getting in my own small way!) LOL!
