Brad Pitt turns college passion into business venture

Wednesday November 7, 2012

Brad Pitt has revealed that he is designing his own furniture line.

The Hollywood heart throb has been working on an exclusive range of pieces with designer Frank Pollaro, according to the Architectural Digest magazine.

The star will unveil his twelve-piece collection in New York. It will consist of chairs, tables, a bed, a cocktail table and a bath for two.

The A-lister told the magazine he'd had some ideas in the pipeline for some time after being inspired back in his college days.

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."

Brad's furniture fans, however, will have to start saving their cash if they want a piece from the collection.

Designer Frank Pollaro said: "My prices are typically at the highest end of the custom-furnishings scale, and these will be up there, even north of that".
