Burrow Couch Review: Everything You Need to Know

Sometimes, picking the right couch for your space and use can be overwhelming, as there are numerous brands, colours, fabrics, and retailers to choose from. You might also have to put into consideration: comfort, price, size, shape, pet, and stain resistance. A brand that gives value to all your worries is Burrow.

Burrow is a top leading furniture company in the United States, specializing in creating a wide range of furniture and decor, such as sofas, chairs, shelving systems, coffee tables, rugs, and pillows, among others, without compromising quality, affordability, and convenience.

Burrow couches are available in different sizes and shapes that suit your purpose. They are reportedly known to be stain-resistant and pet-proof.

I will recommend the Burrow Nomad sofa to my friends and family as it is comfortable, easy to carry, and easy to remove stains. Its modular features make it unique and fit into any space. Aside from Burrow having to produce more fabric and colour options, the piece is highly recommendable.

Burrow Materials and Design

The Burrow collection is specially designed and consists of consistent parts shared by each collection piece.


The newly redesigned legs are made of Parawood or Asian Oak. They are about 5-1/2” long and have three finish options available, which are: a light Scandinavian, a dark mid-century stain, and the classic matte black.

They have a hardware base that makes it easy to install into the bottom of the couch without additional tools.


Its frame is made from sustainable pinewood that originated and was produced in the United States. With Burrow’s consistent philosophy and model, the frame is modular, with a separate frame for each seat.

The frame allows easy seat addition or subtraction for sofa transportation and is also based on your home’s unique needs.


The Burrow seat is usually 5” thick and 17” from the floor to the seat top. Burrow uses 1.5-pound density polyurethane foam with a 33-compression rating.

Compression rating here is usually determined by measuring the cushion compression degree. Whenever you sit on the seat, the higher the compression degree, the firmer the seat is. In relation to comfort, these materials result in a slightly firmer feel.

The Burrow seat has two available style options: tufted or un-tufted. The cushions can easily be flipped for easy and frequent changes of style.

There are five different fabric choices you can choose from, which are all made from stain-resistant olefin, a synthetic polymer.

The colour options include:

  1. Beige
  2. Brick Red
  3. Crushed Grave
  4. Navy Blue
  5. Charcoal

N.B: You cannot select a custom fabric with any pieces in the Burrow collection.


Burrow’s arms are usually high or low. The arms of Burrow are of the mid-century modern style with an angle slightly facing towards the outside.

For a softer look, they have a flat top with radiused corners.


Like the Burrow seat, the backs of the Burrow couch are also 5” thick. They are made from the same 1.5-pound polyurethane foam with a 28 compression rating for a soft texture.

The back cushions have stain-resistant fabric for a uniform appearance.
