Would love write how much I love B&B's furniture, but I never got past the lack of customer service. On 2 July I spoke to a gentlemen about a list of questions that are not covered on the website (to include an error). In order to answer my questions about quality and construction, he said he had to contact the manufacturer, but in the meantime he would be able to send me three material swatches. Forward to approximately 10 July: no information and no swatches. I initiated follow-up correspondence asking if these requests had fallen through the cracks (stuff happens, I get it) and was told by a woman due to the 4th of July holiday, communications were delayed and she would investigate, get the answers to my questions and ensure swatches were sent.
I also reminded her of the website error that had yet to be corrected. Now 12 days on from that second correspondence and still nothing. No follow up by B&B even to say "Hey, we haven't forgotten you," no concrete answers about construction or warranty (during the original conversation it was more of "take my word for it"), and perhaps the most simple of all tasks...no swatches. Have money in my pocket and a desire for quality furniture from a company who gives a damn throughout the entire process. Brass & Burl is not that company.
We apologize for the lack of swatch availability. This manufacturer has stopped producing in the U.S. and we believed they would still be able to continue operation through the summer. We informed the customer.
I'm so pleased to have discovered this terrific online home furnishings store! The selection is vast, the quality of their products is very high and all of that is topped off with competitive prices! We ordered an area rug and a brass topped cocktail table to update our living room; both truly exceeded our expectations. There was a little hiccup around the shipment of the table and Emily very quickly got it sorted out. For someone like who conducts about 95% of all my consumer buying online, Brass & Burl is a true find.
I have nothing but good things to say about Brass & Burl and will certainly be coming back as I continue to furnish my apartment. From the onset, Emily worked with me and my boyfriend to find exactly what we were looking for and what best suited our space and existing furniture. We looked at several other furniture sites and didn't find anything that rivaled the quality or selection here. Our favorite piece is the Akron Counter Stools (we purchased in Storm Leather) - we get compliments every time we have guests over! We also couldn't believe that free shipping is offered at all times - so nice not to have to time purchases with promotion emails, etc.
So pleased with the service and quality merchandise available through Brass and Burl! Emily and Adam were accommodating of a need for expedited shipping and provided assurances that any delivery and or damage issues incurred would be resolved, giving me the confidence to order online. Theodore Alexander entry bench arrived safely and in excellent condition.
I was looking for an umbrella for my deck, and I am thrilled to land on the Brass and Burl website. I was searching for a high quality product that wouldn’t break easily and would look great with my furniture. I was able to speak with Emily, who helped me customize my umbrella. It arrived on time with a professional delivery service. The umbrella was exactly as expected, looks magnificent and is extremely high quality. I would (and have) recommend Brass and Burl to anyone looking for high-quality furnishings.

I purchased this etagere to match Theodore Alexander living room end tables and etagere that I had purchased 10 years ago. This furniture is excellent and maintains great appearance for many years. It was great to find a store near NYC that sells this brand. Good experience purchasing and with the delivery.
Emily and Adam at Brass & Burl are the best! I found them as dealers for Uttermost, and quickly felt that Emily was very knowledgeable about the wide market of leather seating. Their dedication to representing quality furniture gave me the confidence to purchase two chairs. They were very quickly delivered in perfect shape, and I love them! Emily and Adam are super friendly and make it more than apparent that they care about your selection and satisfaction. I will absolutely work with them again.
We had been searching high and low for large, high quality "poufs" for our living room. It seemed every site we came across only offered smaller poufs, or if we did find large ones they were not good quality. Needless to say we were thrilled to find Brass & Burl carrying exactly what we were looking for! Their website was extremely easy to navigate and the high res images of the poufs ensured we were getting what we wanted. One of the co-owners, Adam, was even kind enough to answer a few questions we had over the phone. Excellent customer service! We purchased two poufs from the Oak Cove collection and they have been great. Even our puppy, Beil Reg, is enjoying them for his afternoon nap.
So happy with the Rutherford headboard I ordered through Brass & Burl. I'd been looking for something for months and finally found it for the best price on Brass & Burl. One of the owners, Emily, actually helped me pick the right color for the room when I was struggling between two options. Couldn't have asked for a better experience and will definitely be purchasing more in the future!
We recently purchased 2 beautiful lamps from Brass & Burl. After searching in other stores and websites they had the best inventory with the most competitive prices. The website was very user friendly and customer service was impeccable. We are very happy with our purchase and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for valuable pieces for their home.
Really loved the website - you are able to filter by just about any combination of attributes you can think of in almost any order which really helped me to narrow down what I wanted with just having an idea of the look I was going for. The selection is HUGE and they are the best prices on the internet every time. Co-Owner Adam helped me to pick the right size rug for my space and was very helpful in explaining what the different materials would mean for cleaning and longevity. Also, definitely check out their desks, some very unique and cool items that I will be sure to be back for as soon as my bosses give me a raise. Overall, I was extremely happy with the experience and quality and will be sure to be back for my next home needs. The rug really has tied the room together I must say.
Great find & incredible service! I found Brass & Burl while searching for kitchen chairs. Co-owner Emily was so helpful answering questions I had and clearly knowledgeable about all products on the site. I felt confident with my purchase and could not be happier with the quality and look. The site is so beautifully curated, I have since spent so much time scrolling through the website and their Instagram finding inspiration for future projects.
