Monday morning Huffington Post reports that Architectural Digest is revealing Brad Pitt’s partnership with Frank Pollaro to develop designs for furniture. The furniture collection will be revealed in New York on November 13. The collection will include a table and chairs set and a super-sized bed.
According to news reports, Pitt has wanted to delve into the world of design since the 1990s and models after Frank Lloyd Wright and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Pitt dished on his design fetish, stating:
“I’ve been doodling ideas for buildings and furniture since the early 1990s, when I first discovered (Charles Rennie) Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright,” Pitt tells the magazine. “Actually, I found Wright in college, when looking for a lazy two-point credit to get out of French. It forever changed my life.”
This furniture line will have an Art-Deco styling and will be very expensive, and exclusive as only nine beds will be made. So, only nine other women can sleep in Brad Pitt’s bed, after the design is released. The design line can be seen on Pitt-Pollaro.com starting November 11.
According to Frank Pollaro, Pitt had thousands of designs to choose from, which required meetings that lasted for up to 10 hours to narrow down the choices. Pollaro said:
“We talk about design, about materials, about craftsmanship, about classicism, about modernism. He has a respect for the masters of design.”
It is pretty clear from the Twitter responses at the end of the article that the news is being met with little response from people. It seems that all the celebrity launches of perfumes and clothing lines have made it common place to be involved in the normal digs of life. It is pretty cool though to see a male celebrity launching into furniture design. We know many women that would love to sit on Brad Pitt – his furniture that is.
We loved the banter back and forth with two Twitter users, who made witty remarks about Brad Pitt’s endeavor into the world of furniture design.
Design In Belgium “Brad Pitt is launching his own line of furniture…another celebrity trying to make it in the world of design so good luck to you Brad!”
Martin Stephens “Brad Pitt to release line of furniture….. 1st rule of Brad Pittfurniture is that you never talk about Brad Pitt furniture.”
Kevin Ricotta “Brad Pitt has announced that he is creating a furniture line. So basically bong holders will be added to recliners.”
Jimmy LeChase “@KevinRicotta *handsome recliners”
Kevin Ricotta “@LeChased goatee’d recliners“
Jimmy LeChase “@KevinRicotta Two Recliners with 8, multicultural ottomans as accessories”
We aren’t sure who won the Twitter responses about Brad Pitt and his furniture designs, but we are excited to see what Brad Pitt has done. He is very talented and it is certain that his creative talent will extend to his Art Deco furniture.
