A few months back my wife and I moved from Austin to Seattle. As part of the move we sold basically all of our furniture and decided to start afresh in our new home.
Our new apartment is around 600sq feet, so we didn’t have a ton of room to work with, which we thought would make furnishing it quite difficult.
Since its launch in 2016, Burrow has been focused on creating comfortable, innovative furniture with real-life practicality. We set our sights on the Field sofa and I’m excited to share a detailed review with you here on Living Cozy.
Burrow has a range of three sofa collections right now: Nomad (its original sofa), Range, and Field. Each collection is modular in design and features a bunch of customization options. If you’d like to learn more about the Nomad or Range, check out our reviews below:
The Field is Burrow’s newest sofa collection. Its design is driven by customer feedback and insights and the brand says its crafted to “support endless hours of sitting, lounging, and napping.”
The Field Collection starts at $595 (for an armchair) and goes up to $4,195 (for a spectacular 8-piece U-shaped sectional). Its modular design also means you can add new sections as your needs and home might change.
In order to fit with individual needs and preferences, the Field Collection comes with a range of customization and configuration options.
We went for the Field 3-Piece Sofa with an added Ottoman ($1,890) to create more space to kick back and relax.
Watch: To give you a true feel for the Field, we put together this video to give you everything you need to know before you buy:
Burrow offers free shipping on all orders — and if you happen to order from its ‘Ready to Ship’ section, you could be amazed just how fast your new sofa arrives. Our sofa was ordered on May 12 and arrived on May 18.
Burrow’s sofas are shipped in boxes, making them easy to move around your home and maneuver into the right spot in your living room. It also means you don’t have to worry about wrestling a full-size sofa through any tight hallways or doors.
Now, if you’ve ever had to built furniture at home, you probably have a few nightmare tales to tell. And honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect when the Burrow boxes arrived on my doorstep. Thankfully, though, it was straightforward to build from start to finish.
Each part was ready to go and the sofa came together really easily. The tools needed to build the sofa also came in a neat pouch so it was easy to find what you were looking for at any moment.
The Field fits perfectly in the corner of our living room, right next to the window overlooking some of Seattle’s lovely green spaces. It’s the perfect place to relax and wind down from the day or waste away the weekend with a good book of Netflix binge.
Our apartment has quite a minimalist style and the Field fits right in. But I feel like it's versatile enough to work in almost any home and interior aesthetic.
The Field has a seat depth of 21" — and it took me a little while to get used to the depth. Thankfully, the ottoman add-on gives us the extra space to kick our feet up when we need to.
The Field also has quite a low profile with a seat height of 16" and a frame height of 28". This works great in our living space but might not be perfect for everyone. The seat depth and height also seems to encourage good posture while sitting.
From the first sit, the Field was incredibly comfortable and I feel that Burrow got the cushions just right. They’re not too soft and not too hard. The Field isn’t the type of sofa to engulf you when you sit in it and that’s just what I like. Whether I’m working away on my laptop or laying back with a book, the Field accommodates my needs.
For in stock sofas, Burrow’s lead times are incredibly fast. On its website delivery times are around 5-10 days (as of publishing). As I mentioned earlier, our sofa was ordered on May 12 and arrived on May 18. Of course, supply chain issues could impact this moving forward. But whenever possible, Burrow aims to ship its sofas fast.
Sometimes I feel sofas can be too pillow-like and soft so you can almost get lost in the sofa when you sit in it. There are also sofas that are so firm it feels hard to truly get comfortable and relax. I’ve had both of these style sofas in the past and the Field gets it just right in my opinion. The cushions are soft but supportive.
Burrow is a conscious brand and tries to use materials that aren’t needlessly harmful to the planet. The Field frame is made from sustainably-sourced hardwoods, and the panels are made from single sheets of bent plywood. The panels are connected by steel plates and brackets. And its cushions are also CertiPUR-US certified, which means they are free of ozone depleters, formaldehyde, heavy metals, and flame retardants.
Founded in 2016, Burrow set out to change the furniture industry by making pieces from your living room and beyond without compromising quality, affordability, and convenience.
Burrow's innovative sofa-in-a-box made sofa buying more straightforward and helped redefine an industry that hadn't changed for decades. Its modular design means its pieces are easy to take apart as it is put together and made to expand if your needs change.
Burrow now has a range of mid-century modern furniture, including sofas, shelving systems, coffee tables, and more.
Burrow has a strong focus on both style and substance. Its furniture is inspired by American Mid-Century Modernism and contemporary Scandinavian interior design. Its furniture features acute attention to detail to ensure each piece meets the demands of modern living with functional features like built-in chargers, modular design, and concealed storage. Each piece is designed to last years and adapt with you.
We’ve been living with the Field sofa for around six weeks now and we love it. It’s not only comfortable but it’s versatile and feels like it’ll be with us for a long time.
The design is timeless and will work as our apartment here in Seattle evolves and I’m confident it’d also be coming with us anywhere we move too. The beauty of Burrow’s modular system also means the sofa can evolve with us if our needs change over the coming years.
