Our Verdict
3 / 5 STARS

A newer brand doing cool things in the furniture space but not sure enough of the pricetag is flowing into the sofa... Quality is disappointing, expect to pay for the hip experience.

Made In

"Burrow products are thoughtfully designed in the USA and manufactured with carefully vetted partners from all over the world – including those in North Carolina, Vietnam, Poland, and India."


"We knew that if we wanted to make a meaningful difference, it wouldn’t be as simple as putting a couch in a box and selling it online. To set a new standard, we had to focus on three fundamental changes: a modular platform, a focus on function and fashion, and an investment in community and experience."

3-Seater Sofa Starting at Price





Upholstery options vary per sofa line, but they have leathers, velvets, and woven fabrics, leather seaming to be the most popular. Color options, while not a wide range, do cover the most popular/common options so there should be something for everyone.

Other Options:

No real customization outside upholstery option. You can choose the side the chaise is on for sectionals, but can't switch it at a later date (not modular)


Total # of Swatches: 17

# of Upholstery Types: 3 (fabric, leather, velvet. Not all options are available on all sofas)

Material Features:

• Fiber weave is scratch and stain resistant
• Velvet is "durable and easy-to-clean performance velvet"
• Leather is a "beautiful, natural material that develops a unique patina"

Other Options:

2 sofa styles: 

Nomad (more classic look): has 3 different arm styles, fabric/velvet/leather options, can choose leg finish & material.

Range (more contemporary): only 4 fabric options and 3 wood finishes


No comfort options/customizations, the materials used varies depending on the sofa.

Nomad Collection: The cushions are formulated for lasting comfort with our proprietary three-layer foam and fiber architecture, and feature a plush crown for a soft initial sit.

Range Collection: The cushions use a combination of medium-density foam, shredded fill, and fiber wadding to give that immediate sink-in feeling with enduring comfort.


They do have a modular sofa collection where you can buy a "set" or buy modules individually.

Nomad Collection features the Moveable Chaise: can be attached to any seat: left, right, or in the middle.

Range Collection features a universal modular system: there are countless possible configurations, thanks to standardized connections and sizing. Can add in integrated tables or an attachable ottoman
