Brad Pitt joins a host of other celebrities who have furniture collections.

Brad Pitt has found a new way to keep busy. Despite having a large family, busy career, and a number of charitable causes, there is still enough time for the actor launch his own furniture line. The 48-year-old star is designing his own collection with the help of furniture vet Frank Pollaro, and he is already set for his public debut. "I've been doodling ideas for buildings and furniture since the early 1990s," said the star, who will hold his first furniture show on November 13 in New York. Brad will reveal several pieces, including tables, chairs, and a bed. Given his star power, there is no reason to think that his collection won't be a huge hit. Brad is now one of several stars to get into the furniture business. Here are a few others that have had their own furniture collections.

Cindy Crawford

The former supermodel is one of the biggest celebrity heavyweights in the furniture world. She launched her first furniture collection in 2005, and it has evolved ever since then. Cindy claims that the furniture reflects her personality, and that has made her products successful. Her furniture can be found at several major retailers, including Raymour & Flanigan and J.C. Penney.

Donald Trump

Is there any business that Donald isn't involved in? The heavily exposed casino pioneer is behind the Trump Home collection. The sets feature a New York theme, with the goal being to provide people with luxurious furniture at affordable prices. While the collection might seem like a perfect for Donald, it should be noted that he didn't really design it. Instead, Donald entered into a highly successful branding relationship with the company that created the line.

John Elway

The NFL Hall of Famer is known as one of the greatest quarterbacks ever, but he also has done many other things with his life. One of those involves a furniture line, which is largely geared toward men. Bassett Furniture created the Elway line, and continues to enjoy successful sales. The most notable pieces in the collection are the home entertainment centers, which might be the perfect complement to a big screen TV.
