Read the full Burrows Couch review:

Hey guys, Charles Powers from The Game Fanatics here with a unique and slightly different product today. So, my wife and I just bought our first home, and one of the hardest decisions…unbeknownst to us…was picking a freaking couch. Loveseats, sofas, sectionals…colors, fabric, style. We spent weeks researching. Until we came across, what we think, was the one. Meet Burrow.

A couple of things sold us on the couch – the style, the color, the return policy, the stain resistant fabric, the hidden USB hub…and probably most important of all, the price..I could go on. And I will.

So here’s my review of the Burrow couch!

If you’ve heard of the “mattress in a box” companies such as Casper, Purple, or Tuft & Needle then the concept of a couch in a box/direct to consumer model should be pretty familiar. The couch arrived at our front door in 5 boxes. I was able to move these from the front door to the garage, and subsequently the living room without much help, but it’ll definitely take two people to move these up stairs.

As for when it came time to put the Burrow together, I needed zero tools. Let me repeat…zero. Tools. This is easily the least complex piece of furniture I’ve ever had to assemble.

Though the sofa arrives in multiple boxes, the essential pieces are pre-assembled: the back, bottom, and cushions, so you simply align the pieces, lock them in place with the industrial latches (rated for 800 pounds), and you’re pretty much done. My wife and I completed the assembly in about 15 minutes, and as I think back on it I still can’t believe it. I’d include the full regular speed video, but who wants to sit through 15 minutes of a husband and wife putting together furniture. “Babe, that’s not what the direction says” “Baby pass me the drill. I. Got. This.”

Seriously, the assembly was a breeze.

The Burrow couch was designed by an award-winning furniture designer and for me that was pretty cool because one of the challenges of picking a couch is settling on a design. The couch looks stunning. This is the charcoal gray color, there’s crushed gravel, beige, navy blue, and brick red. The sofa also features chemical free fabric and contains high-density foam core to help the cushions maintain their shape over time.

The USB/Power is a power cube that attaches to the bottom of the couch, it has 2 USB ports and 3 AC outlets – because the couch blocks two of my outlets, this convenience factor is a pretty nice addition.

Being 6’4″, I wanted something I could lay down comfortably on when it came time for sprawling out, yet something firm I could sit up against in the heat of battle. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the Burrow couch allowed for both.

This sofa has seen a lot of action, and is holding up quote well, in short the Burrow couch is a work of craftsmanship.

Is it possible to fall in love with a piece of furniture? I’d argue that it is. Everything from the initial assembly to the comfort and functionality of the Burrow couch made it the perfect couch for my wife and I. Those who live a more nomadic lifestyle or live in apartments will be pleased with the modular design, and relieved when it comes time to pack up and go.

As for pricing, the Burrow starts out at $550 for the 1-seater and tops out at a little over $1100 for the 4-seater. Reasonable pricing for some quality furniture.

I’d hope to see corner pieces and ottomans, maybe even throws, rugs, and other furniture as well – I was so pleased with my experience I’m ready to furnish my entire living room with Burrow furniture.

That wraps up my review of the Burrows couch. Like I said, 2 weeks in and my wife and I are absolutely loving it! If you’re thinking about picking up one, or if there’s anything I can help clarify that I maybe didn’t go into enough detail about, please drop a comment and I’ll respond as soon as I can. Be sure to check out for the full written review, and for all things geek culture.

Until next time, keep calm and game on!

Thank you for posting this! I was debating on purchasing one. There is only one other review on it on you tube and it was half assed. Btw, your review was quick and thorough!

Hanging w/ Harmon says:

This would be perfect if you could recline. It would be 100% TKO then

Eva Escribano says:

He, I wish I had come across this couch before getting my default Ikea one. 😛

Eva Lozano says:

I’ve been looking at Sactionals but they are pretty pricy. Atleast 2,600 for a love seat.

Kyle Fisher says:

Those charging ports are key! I’ll have to look into getting one of these for my spare room.

hypershadow024 says:

That power cube built in to the couch is reason enough to buy it. It is seriously such a great idea!

ron edmeades says:

Worst purchase I have made; if it wasn’t for the fact that I had been without a couch for 3 months (divorce) and just didn’t want to start looking for a new couch I would have returned the whole thing. Took them over 3 weeks to send it the couch to me, they only put the requirement for the signature on one box so the UPS guy delivered 75% of my sofa and took the other piece back to the depot and I had to go and get it. Then (it’s modular remember) they sent me the wrong parts, so I had half a couch, the arm was poorly made and the screw-in grommets were missing so I couldn’t mount the feet, also they shorted me 4 feet screws so I couldn’t even mount the feet if I wanted to. It has taken them a further 3 weeks to ship me the replacement parts (that is the scheduled delivery I still haven’t received them) so after ordering at Christmas (it’s mid Feb) I still don’t have a couch. Great idea, dodgy build quality, service kind of sucks – they say ‘sorry’ a lot but it doesn’t help! Buy with extreme caution.

My wife would love it if I didn’t have to run a USB cable across the living room to charge controllers!

Tyler Chancey says:

What a world we live in. Freaking couch aimed at nerds. Jeez.

Never thought I would look at a couch and go: “that’s mine now.” Seriously may look into one of these.

Eva Lozano says:

oops, 2,600 for a sofa

Forbes Jones says:

I need this couch in my life

Been eyeing Burrow for a while. Nice to see a review out there, especially since we game and watch movies together all the time as well. I appreciate the insight.
