Brad Pitt Launches a Furniture Line

Is there anything Brad Pitt can't do?

The Killing Them Softly actor has teamed up with furniture maker Frank Pollaro to create a collection of furnishings, Architectural Digest reports.

The line includes a dining table, a cocktail table, several side tables, a few club chairs and a bathtub for two in Statuario Venato marble. According to Architectural Digest, Pitt'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 spiraling metal base finished in 24k gold."

An architecture buff, Pitt, 48, is no stranger to great design. "I've been doodling ideas for buildings and furniture since the early 1990s, when I first discovered [Charles Rennie] Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright," he says. "Actually, I found Wright in college, when looking for a lazy two-point credit to get out of French. It forever changed my life."

After Hurricane Katrina, Pitt used his passion to create his Make It Right foundation, which relies on prominent architects to create quality affordable housing in New Orleans.

Although his regular meetings with Pollaro lasted "anywhere from seven to ten hours" and he describes himself as "bent on quality to an unhealthy degree", when asked how he feels about being called a furniture designer, Pitt hesitates to answer.

"Let's not get ahead of ourselves," he says.

Pitt's collection will be unveiled Nov. 13 - 15 in New York.
