Burrow Couch Review (JUST UPDATED)
This Burrow Couch Review was recently done by the MattressJunkie.com team. The Burrow couch is delivered direct to your doorstep in a box and caught my eye when I read an article about them recently. Much like mattresses, the couch buying process traditionally hasn’t changed much in 50 years. Burrow is one of the few couch in a box companies that are going to become extremely popular as they take on the couch industry by storm. We couldn’t have been any more excited when the awesome people over at Burrow wanted to hook us up with a new couch. Check out the review below and you’ll see why…..
What makes Burrow so cool?
Burrow is cool for a ton of reasons. First, you can avoid furniture stores and order your Burrow couch from home. Burrow is also fully customizable. Adapting to any living room set up, easily moved through disassembly, and the ability to make different setups all make Burrow a very attractive option for your ever changing life on the go. I cannot tell you how many times I have stressed about my couch not fitting in my next city apartment. I have even had to give couches away that didn’t fit from move to move. This no longer is an issue with Burrow’s easily assembled, dissembled couch. Burrow also paid attention to detail and added removable USB ports because there’s nothing more annoying than using an outlet behind the couch or having a low battery. These extras all add up to a really convenient and cost efficient couch that will make you never want to go back to traditional furniture buying ever again.
How hard is it to set up the Burrow couch?
Burrow brags on their website that you can assemble their couch in less than 10 minutes. I was eager to test this theory because 10 minutes seemed rather aggressive. I was impressed when I had the couch together extremely quickly. The instructions are very easy to follow and the pieces snapped together easily. From someone who has flashbacks from Ikea assembly nightmares, Burrow really exceeded my expectations in how easy it was to get set up. No tools are needed and everything literally is snapped together.
How will my Burrow couch arrive?
Burrow is shipped UPS and takes 2-5 days to arrive on average. Burrow ships to your doorstep for free. Each box weighs about 50 pounds. You can expect 2 boxes for a 1 seater, 3 boxes for a 2 seater, 4 boxes for a 3 seater, and 5 boxes for a 4 seater.
Yes, you get to take advantage of a 30 day trial period and will be refunded if you don’t like your couch during that timeframe.
What options do I have when I order my Burrow couch?
Burrow comes with the choice of low or high arms and in 5 color options. I received the low arm option and it’s the perfect height for me. I would choose the low arms again if I had the choice. You can also choose between 5 colors. The colors are Beige, Brick Red, Crushed Gravel, Navy Blue, and Charcoal. As you can see from the photos, we got ours in Brick Red.
UPDATED: We recently added the Burrow Ottoman to our Burrow Couch. This is a new option available from Burrow and costs $295. The ottoman is super easy to put together. You literally just align the legs with the drilled out holes and tighten the easy to turn screws. I highly recommend the ottoman because it serves many purposes. Add it to your couch and stretch out or use it as a separate seat when you have company over. The ottoman is a great size at 25 inches by 25 inches. The cushion is double sided just like the couch so you can flip it over to change the look.
What’s Burrow Made Of?
All of Burrow’s sofas are safe and friendly to the environment. The wood used is sustainably sourced, the fabric is free of any harmful chemicals. The boxes used in shipping are even made of recycled materials.
What’s The Cover feel like? Does It Need To Be Treated For Stain Resistance?
Burrow’s cover is very luxurious feeling. You definitely get the sense that the Burrow couch is very high quality. As you can see from the close ups, the cover is thick and rugged while still being sleek and stylish. The Burrow cover comes stain resistant out of the box so you don’t need to worry about treating it or ruining it if you spill something.
Is There A Weight Capacity For Burrow?
Each seat module holds 200 pounds max so the capacity for a 3 seater would be 600 pounds at once.
How hard is it to add or remove sections of the Burrow to reconfigure?
Anchor Seat Modules can be added or subtracted to reconfigure the assembly very easily. Setup is literally such a breeze that you don’t even need to stress.
Does Burrow Offer Financing?
Burrow offers financing through Affirm to those that qualify.
What does Burrow cost?
Burrow is able to charge way less than traditional furniture stores by cutting out the middle man.
1 seater- $550
2 seater- $750
3 Seater- $950
4 seater- $1150
Do we recommend Burrow’s couch in a box option?
We’ve been using our Burrow Couch for over 6 months now. I still love it just as much as I did the day it arrived. My couch is the first thing complimented when anyone walks into my house. Literally everyone likes it. The versatility of the Burrow Couch gives me a ton of options now and in the future. Moving has never been so easy and if you have ever moved in a city, a couch fitting through the doorway is always a tight squeeze. The modern sexy look of the Burrow Couch reminds me of something you would find in Crate and Barrel or West Elm. Burrow also offers a 30 day money back guarantee if you decide its not for you. You can’t this type of deal at the furniture store.
