Brad Pitt Has Built Himself A Furniture Business

| Filed under: Brad PittEtc.Business Blitz

Many celebs have a passion for designing clothing, but Brad Pitt is among the first we've encountered with a hankering to design furniture.

The 48-year-old has teamed up with New Jersey-based furniture maker Frank Pollaro to create 12 designs consisting of tables, chairs and a bed (below), which can be seen between November 13 and 15 in New York.

Pitt explained that his fascination with furniture design began after discovering the work of architects like Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright. He revealed his hobby's origin by saying:

“I’ve been doodling ideas for buildings and furniture since the early 1990s, when I first discovered Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright. Actually, I found Wright in college, when looking for a lazy two-point credit to get out of French. It forever changed my life.”

And even though his works will be going on sale for about $45,000 each, the actor is modest about his newest career aspirations.

When asked about what it's like to officially become the designer he's always wanted to be, he replied, “Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.”

His collaborator, on the other hand, suggested, “I think we’ll be doing this for a long time."

Either way, Mr. Pitt's talent never ceases to amaze us.

    well imo, based on these photos it's a good thing this is a hobby, and he has a "real" day job. a few people will buy jusy because his name is on them. but any slightly tasteful person won't buy it. seriously to me, they all look like crap.

    He and his wife/fiance are elderly now. They should not have more kids. They have lovely places in which to settle down. Pick one please and go there. In my opinion Mr. and Mrs / Ms. Pitt are too old. They have children, time to grow up and show your ages.

    There is nothing left interesting about them. As soon as BP changed his life/wife, he became boring. His g/wife was never intersing. Bored with this.

    Enough of the world full of hatred! The name here is Brad Pitt! The man is creative and lives an interesting life! When he is not acting, he does charity work or stays with his family. With the designing thing, this man does not want to just sit down like most of the hollywood Bimbos waiting for a script to pop up! He could not do what he is doing now because he was was BORED and life was like a living hell with the ex soooosooo.
    Love you Brad and you still top the list of sexiest men alive!

    I really liked this furniture to look at, and I'm a diehard fan of traditional, classic, and antiques. It's really interesting and different, and if I had a place with modern lines, would consider a piece if it wasn't exhorbitantly priced. Not like me at all.
