Interview with Stephen Kuhl, founder of Burrow

For the millions of people that buy couches every year we all know the frustration that goes along with it. We have to visit a bunch of furniture stores hoping to find a couch we like, then we have to pay the ridiculous retail markup prices then we probably have to wait a couple weeks for it to be delivered. Burrow is here to change all of that by making couch shopping fun, easy and affordable. Just visit their website at, design your dream couch and wait for it to arrive at your house or apartment. Burrow relaunched their new website yesterday with an expanded product selection so now they can cater to even more customers. Burrow went through Y-combinator in 2016 and is based in NYC.

In this interview I spoke with Stephen, co-founder of Burrow about his company and why he started it, what made him want to get into the couch business, can the direct-to-consumer model work for furniture, how did Burrow setup their manufacturing operations, how do they handle delivery and keep the price affordable, what has been their customer acquisition strategy, what does their new product expansion consist of, what have been the biggest business challenges, what has been the most fun, what has been their recruiting strategy, what has been their fundraising strategy, what is the future for Burrow look like and much more.
