Finally, an Affordable Couch That’s Guaranteed to Fit Through Your Front Door

Burrow’s modular sofas start at $1,395, and won’t leave you staring blankly at an instruction manual.

If the ubiquity of "couch doctors" in every metropolitan area is any indication, fitting a new couch through an apartment door is a universal challenge. But before we call chopping a couch in half and Frankenstein-ing it back together as an urban rite of passage, let’s review our options. Among our favorite affordable couches, Burrow stands out as a shining solution to moving woes.

I turned to Burrow, a direct-to-consumer startup based in New York, after a couple failed attempts at getting a couch through the frighteningly small door to my apartment. Burrow’s modular furniture fit my price range and size requirements—and when it arrived, I was able to assemble it myself without ever even opening the instruction manual.

We aren't going to tell you how to decide who gets the side of the sofa with the chaise lounge, but we will say that our soft, supple, top-grain Italian leather is a people-pleaser even if you can't put your feet up. Photo Courtesy of Burrow...
Burrow Nomad Leather Sofa

The perfect leather sofa is now in reach. Our Nomad Leather Sofa is 86" of soft, supple, and sophisticated top-grain Italian leather — with all the life-changing conveniences you expect from Burrow.

The Nomad Sofa fits comfortably in my tiny apartment, yet provides more than enough room for friends to crash on it. Compared to the standard-issue twin XL a recent graduate may be used to, the Nomad Sofa sleeps like a dream. If you need to try it yourself to believe it, Burrow has showrooms in Chicago and New York where all of their furniture can be put to the test.

Burrow offers five fabrics, two leathers, and three wood finishes so the sofa can be custom-made to complement your home. All sofas come with built-in USB chargers which quickly become hard to live without (and come in handy when you have an impromptu guest). Beyond furniture, their product line also extends into affordable throws and pillows which, along with the sofas, are made in America and always non-toxic. 

Starting at $1,395, the Nomad Sofa is the perfect option for new apartment owners and for those who can’t make it past the first page of an IKEA manual.
