First Lenny Kravitz, then Justin Timberlake, and now, Brad Pitt? That's right. The actor is collaborating with furniture reproduction whiz Frank Pollaro to debut a mix of chairs, tables, and one extraordinary bed and tub, in New York on Nov. 13.
If you didn't know about Brad Pitt's Make It Right foundation — which recruits architects and designers to create affordable housing in post-Katrina New Orleans, or his collection of modernist and contemporary furniture — chances are, this news might be surprising. Still, Pitt claims that his passion for design started in college when he discovered the work of industry heavyweights like Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright.
Our pick? A double-spiral side table finished in 24K gold, but check out the full article and a sneak peek of the collection at Architectural Digest to decide for yourself!
