brad pitt + furniture design

Turns out Brad Pitt & I have something in common.  Yep!  We both discovered Frank Lloyd Wright in College.  I was actually surrounded by the amazing architect's handiwork as I attended Florida Southern College.  The campus boasts the largest collection of Wright's work at a single site.

Brad, on the other hand, learned of Frank Lloyd Wright at the University of Missouri... and the seed of inspiration was planted.  Sure Pitt has had a few successes on the silver screen along the way, but his sketchbook of furniture designs has been in the works behind the scenes for quite some time.


Launching in NYC (in less than a week), Brad Pitt's furniture designs are a culmination of his "doodles" turned reality, thanks to his partnership with luxury furniture designer Frank Pollaro, pollaro.com.

Here's a sneak peek of some of the key pieces in his new line...

Brad Pitt's designs incorporate high-quality materials, sleek & geometric design details similar to the aesthetic qualities of Frank Lloyd Wright's work.  Though I think he adds a little bit of Hollywood swag.
