Brad Pitt unveils new furniture line
Nov 5, 2012, 23:01 GMT
Brad Pitt is launching his own line of luxury furniture.
The 'Killing Them Softly' actor - who is well known for his keen interest in architecture and design - has teamed up with furniture maker Frank Pollaro to create a simple collection of well-structured furnishings.
The father-of-six - who is engaged to actress Angelina Jolie - told Architectural Digest he spent a long time perfecting his designs because he is 'bent on quality to an unhealthy degree' but modestly dismissed suggestions he is now a bona fide furniture designer, saying: 'Let's not get ahead of ourselves.'
The 48-year-old will unveil his new collaboration, which includes a dining table, a cocktail table, a variety of side tables, club chairs and a romantic marble bathtub designed to be shared by two people in New York next week.
The magazine reveals that the actor's designs 'incorporate the idea of a single line' and 'that line can be geometric, as in the case of a 17-foot-long wood dining table' or 'sinuous, as with a glass-top side table that features a wispy spiralling metal base finished in 24k gold.'
The actor also opened up on his love of architecture and revealed he has been designing things since his college years.
He said: 'I've been doodling ideas for buildings and furniture since the early 1990s, when I first discovered [Charles Rennie] 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.'
