Brad Pitt and Frank Pollaro

Last month marked the official launch of the long awaited furniture collection designed by Brad Pitt and built by Pollaro. A wide range of work was introduced, signed and issued in limited edition quantities. Frank Pollaro looked at a sketch book of Mr. Pitts containing design sketches he had worked on over a 10 year period. Impressed, he invited Mr. Pitt to collaborate on an exclusive product line. Pitt’s design paired with Pollaro’s craftsmanship. Beautiful.

“Over a four-year development period, driven by their common vision of unequalled quality, Brad and Frank created the Pitt-Pollaro collection. Designed by Pitt, built by Pollaro. Every piece in the Pitt-Pollaro collection is hand crafted. All are limited editions and are numbered and signed by both Pitt & Pollaro.”

Brad Pitt’s Malibu Home

Brad Pitt’s dreamy midcentury modern home is currently on the market in Malibu. It is sleek, low and long, and is sited waterfront with spectacular views. The homes updated interior features classic and collectible midcentury furniture. In contrast, the kitchen has an industrial influence, with a raw steel dining table, stainless steel cabinetry and and glass work surfaces. This place is perfect for entertaining both large crowds spilling out onto the property, and intimate gatherings enjoying the view. My favorite elements in this home provide the homeowner the ability to blurr the lines between inside and out. True to its midcentury modern roots, this is achieved in the living area with a series of sliding glass panels, opening a large expanse of the exterior wall to connect to a deck running the length of the building. The exposed concrete structure provides the structural integrity needed to open up such a large expanse of glass, column free. Additionally, a fabulous garage door ‘wall’ connects the garden to the kitchen, providing flexibility of space use and maximum light. These simple gestures, in a climate such as this where the out of doors can be enjoyed most months of the year, create a sense of space and useable square footage much greater than the footprint of the building itself. Access to this beautiful outdoor space, both functionally as well as visibly connected, allow Mr. Pitt’s home to live large. Absolutely lovely!
