Property Brothers fans can now get a piece ofDrewandJonathan Scottin their own homes-by buying their new furniture line! Thehunky twinsjust teamed up with Lowe’s on a Scott Living Furniture Collection, which includes hundreds of itemsfor the living room, bedroom, dining room, and office-all the better to push their distinctive aesthetics out to the masses.

We suppose it was only a matter of time before thesehome renovation superstars came out with their own furniture line, since finding great affordable furnishings is a large part ofturning an empty shell of a house into a home (or fetching top dollar if you’re trying to sell). They join other top-tier reality TV stars whoare tapping intotheir fame to hawk home goods (e.g.,Chip and Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper who sella line of paints and home decor at Magnolia Market).

The Scott Living collection-available exclusively online at Lowe’s-focuses on affordability.

We like giving homeowners luxurious detail at a fraction of what they’d pay for similar pieces from other brands, the brothers said in a statement.

Sowhat exactly makes theirstuff high on luxury yet low on price compared withwhat you can find elsewhere?

We’ve designed most of our pieces to be interchangeable with other collections so that it makes it easier for our consumer to blend Scott Living products seamlessly into their home regardless of the paletteor overall style, they said. This saves money and headaches.

Plus, we have also created many multipurpose pieces to maximize storage and functionality, they said. For instance? We built USB ports into our bedside tables to keep your bedroom neat and organized.

Many of their pieces are priced just a tad higherthan similar ones at Ikea, but they have a bonus: They come fully assembled. And as anyone who has tried to put Ikea furniture together knows, time is money!

Curious, we decided to browse the Scotts’ newfurniture line and pick out the pieces that appear to offerthe biggest bang for your buck. Our curated list follows.

Colorful(and comfortable) sofa bed

Anyone who has guests popping in knows the value of a good sleeper sofa-particularly one that doesn’t have a metal bar boring into your back. This Scott Living sofa bed($427) is adecentsolution at a reasonable price-and that robin’s egg blue addscolorful relief to the beige malaise of so many other sofa sleepers.

Color is back in a big way in 2017, the Scotts say.

Upholstered bed

The collection hasplenty of platform beds with hardwood headboards, but we ask you this: Who wantsto read a book in bed while leaning against one of those? We much prefer a bed with an upholstered headboard-and at prices ranging from $492to $594 depending on the size, this bed’sdefinitely a deal.

Storage ottoman

Who doesn’t love a coffee table/footstool/storage chest/seating combination? One of the glories of this one ($308) is its houndstooth print-if people are going to proptheir feet on it, a print is a good way to hide the dirt. Plus these creamy colors won’t weighdown a room as a darker color would.
