Brad Pitt x Frank Pollaro Furniture
Brad Pitt has put his hand to most things over the years, model, actor, face of Chanel, well now he adds another string to his bow, how about designer. Yes this is Brad Pitt’s Furniture range, designed by the man himself and built by world renowned furniture maker Frank Pollaro.
12 different furniture designs are available, each of them made in very limited edition runs (from 1 to 48 individual pieces). Brad Pitt’s furniture includes tables (dining and side), a bed, an exquisite bath tub and a number of different chairs, the bed alone took Pollaro more than two years to make from Pitt’s designs.
“I’ve been doodling ideas for buildings and furniture since the early 1990s, when I first discovered [Charles Rennie] Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright,” says Pitt. “Actually, I found Wright in college, when looking for a lazy two-point credit to get out of French. It forever changed my life.”
Now we have no doubt these will sell (oh they aren’t cheap!), anyone with enough money to buy them could potentially be classed under ‘there is no accounting for taste’. Definitely not our cup of tea, but hey, what do we know! The collection is currently on show in New York right now, and just for 2 more days (until the 15 November 2012).
