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.
