My apartment in New York City is undeniably small. The kitchen is feet away from the living room, the bathroom sink is practically in the shower and every closet looks more like a cabinet. When the time came to source furniture, I dreaded searching online for tiny fixtures, certain that everything I found would be too big. But that’s when I stumbled upon the Burrow Range Collection that solved a major spatial problem.

Unlike traditional sofas that ship as one singular piece, the Range Collection is modular, meaning different seating arrangements and combinations can be made from a collection of fundamentals. You could, for instance, place the Range Seat next to your favorite coffee table, effectively creating a chair. Or if you have more space to work with, you could invest in a larger sectional just as I did that offers more flexibility and modules down the line.

The secret to Burrow’s modular success comes courtesy of basic designs. Each piece is made with the same underlying materials and hardware, allowing you to attach pieces to one another in a wide variety of ways. For instance, my four-piece sectional can transform into two small sofas or a three-piece sectional with a separate chair. And when I want to add a seat, I need only shop the entire Range Collection to find a practical addition. I can even mix and match couch colors to add a little liveliness to our seating arrangement.

But why did I choose Burrow over other modular options? Well, it all comes down to what I’m looking for. I’ve owned everything from cheap Ikea bedframes to upscale West Elm desks, but these days I crave a blend of quality and style in a form factor that’s adaptable to my changing life.

Burrow furniture (my sectional included) ships in individual boxes that fit through the tight doorways and stairwells of modern apartments. It’s also easier to assemble than Ikea furniture — I didn’t even need the instructions — which proves useful when the time comes to move or upgrade to a bigger space, and each piece comes apart as easily as it went together. And beyond the space-saving design, fabrics are scratch- and stain-resistant (a feature I love when we dogsit for our neighbor) and the design is refreshingly modern which means it won’t go out of style anytime soon.

Don’t assume the Range Collection is only for a city-dwelling millennial like me, though. It’s also perfect for homeowners who love to host, weekend warriors with remote getaways and college students who are sure to move upon graduation. In fact, this modular collection of couches will accommodate and adjust to almost any living space big or small.
