Brad Pitt

Talk about nesting!

Brad Pitt spent mucho bucks yesterday when he was the surprise shopper at Design Miami/Basel in Switzerland.

Leaving the rest of the fam home in France, Pitt arrived by himself and browsed through the gallery featuring 28 international exhibitors, according to a source.

So what did the design aficionado (above, with Design Miami director Ambra Medda) pick up during his two-hour tour?

Two kids!

Family Lamp

Pitt’s new Family Lamp from Atelier van Lieshout (above) features foam and reinforced fiberglass figures of what appears to be an adult holding hands with two children.

The price of the lamp wasn’t disclosed by dealer Carpenters Workshop Gallery, but Pitt did pay $293,000 for a marble rococo-style table by Dutch designer Jeroen Verhoeven from the same dealer.

There’s more.

He spent $50,000 for two Bronze Poly Chairs by London-based Max Lamb. Yes, that’s $25,000 per chair!

And if that isn’t enough, Pitt ordered a rug made of aluminum thread. No word on how big a rug he ordered, but Silver Sky by Columbian designer Jorge Lizarazo is priced at $175 a square foot.

Pitt probably won’t stop there. Remember, he and Ang reportedly just bought and are moving into a $60 million estate in the south of France. They’ve got 35 bedrooms plus who knows how many other rooms to furnish.

We're sure our invite to the housewarming party is in the mail.
