Why you should join Burrow

Burrow makes furniture fit for modern life. In April 2017, Burrow launched their first product: a fully customizable sofa that’s easy-to-move and built-to-last. Their sofas are hand crafted in North Carolina with non-toxic, stain- and-scratch resistant fabrics and a hardwood frame made from ethically-forested trees. And because of their modular, adaptable design, all Burrow sofas ship for free in just a week. How revolutionary is this? Fast Company named Burrow one of the 10 most innovative retail companies in the world. Burrow started with the couch and will quickly expand into the entire home, maximizing convenience, quality, and comfort with every piece of uncompromising furniture they design.
