Burrow Price, Durability, Delivery, Pros and Cons
In reviewing Burrow sofas, its important to understand how it all got started.
Burrow launched in 2016 after co-founder Stephen Kuhl, who had herniated two discs in his back from college rowing, teamed up with friend Kabeer Chopra while at Wharton Business School at The University of Pennsylvania. They wanted to design a couch that would be ergonomically perfect for multi-hour Netflix binges while still maintaining a stylish flair in the living room.
They felt that consumers had long been plagued with one of two choices: cheap, flimsy furniture or high-quality, expensive, heavy piece of furniture. Their goal was to remove the need to have a team to move or put together furniture and replace it with clever, comfortable furniture that fits into your life.
Each piece of Burrow furniture is handcrafted from durable, sustainably-sourced hardwood and scratch-and-stain resistant, non-toxic fabrics.
Burrow has a strong commitment to selling furniture at a reasonable price. To that end, couches are delivered directly to the customer to remove retail markups and save extensively on standard shipping costs.
In this review, we’re going to touch on everything there is to know about the online sofa in a box brand. So read on and find out if the burrow sofa is worth it for your next couch purchase.

How long does it take for Burrow to deliver sofas?
Burrow offers free 1-week shipping to your door in lightweight, easy-to-move boxes. This is a bit quicker than other couch brands we’ve reviewed. Depending on which region of the U.S. you are located, furniture could take 3-10 business days for delivery.
How long do Burrow sofas typically last?
Burrow sofas are lightweight and easy to move. They are meant to be moved around and changed easily without the use of heavy lifters. While this is far more convenient, it also indicates that the sofas may have a shorter life cycle. In addition, a limited one year warranty, lends itself to that assumption. If used reasonably, without a lot of wear and tear, it is fair to assume you could get 5-10 years out of the couch.

“I spent a lot of time researching for a light grey sectional, and this couch did not disappoint. It is comfortable, beautiful, and well-made. Easy assembly. Love that you can move the sectional. HIGHLY recommend!”
“I’ve been wanting to get a Burrow for over a year before I finally purchased it; so I loved it even before the purchase. It’s safe to say my weekends will be spent there.”
“I was very excited about the Burrow couch when it first arrived at my door. However, after assembly and sitting on it, I am kinda disappointed. I had a VERY HARD time screwing one crouch leg into the crouch. The thread on the nut isn’t clean cut, and the screw doesn’t fit in. I have to use tools and a lot of strength to basically re-make the nut, and then be able to screw in the leg. It feels a bit too stiff and doesn’t have enough depth to let you sit cross-leg on the sofa.”
“I just received my Burrow Sofa tonight. I am wishing a million times over I’d bought an Ikea couch… because it might look like a $600 couch, but the pieces would fit together. None of the pieces of mine fit, will have to return it. Big pain.”
