When Property Brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott introduced a new show this past year, Celebrity I.O.U., the first episode featured two of our favorite stars: leading man Brad Pitt and Italian furniture maker Clei.
The challenge: help Brad thank his longtime friend and makeup artist, Jean Ann Black, with a small but tricky home makeover by transforming a 370 square foot garage into a luxurious guest house.
Brad’s wish list was far bigger than the existing space, including a full kitchen, living area, sleeping area for guests, bathroom, professional makeup station, and extra storage for supplies. Luckily for Brad and Jean, Jonathon and Drew were already fans of Clei, the Italian design pioneers behind the concept of transformable living systems. In Clei’s innovative designs, created to transform even the smallest spaces into elegant and multi-functional environments, the Scott brothers found the ideal solution to check every item on Brad’s wish list.
Swing, the multi-functional solution for living and sleeping areas, had everything Brad and Jean desired: a foldaway bed and a sofa integrated with ample storage space and a bookshelf, as well as a retractable chaise longue to add extra comfort. With a simple pull of a hidden handle under the display shelf, the ready-to-use queen-size bed instantly appears, turning the living area into a chic and serene sleeping area.
With the unveiling at the end of the episode, it was clear Clei was a big winner with both Brad and Jean. You can see the episode on HGTV (it originally aired on April 13, 2020) — but if you’re ready to star in your own Oscar-worthy remodeling project, we’re ready to help you find the perfect Clei solution to transform your space into a magical retreat.
