Faulty goods - no refund
Purchased a sofa for $1199 - it took 6 months to deliver and after a few months of light use (we are not big people) the back has broken with wooden splinters poking through the fabric at the back. After a week of being ignored when enquiring about warranty and refund we have now been offered a $180 refund or the possibility of a replacement in 6 months time. How about a sofa that doesn’t fall apart? So all in all this has been a disaster of a purchase. Just avoid them.
Brosa Amelia Armchair Sags
We purchased the Amelia Armchair online and it sags terribly and is very uncomfortable. We have tried calling Brosa customer service and can never get through. We have also sent multiple emails to support with no response. After care and customer service is absolutely terrible at Brosa. What good is a warranty if Brosa completely ignore customers once the purchase is done!
We also purchased the Mila 3 seater and that sofa is fantastic! So if your happy with your purchase Brosa can be great. However if your product is faulty expect to be put through the ringer. It’s been over a month and we are still waiting for a response re: warranty.
Very poor service experience
Purchased Meggs Sideboard in December, promised a 5 week delivery, took about 10 weeks plus 2 week delivery schedule. It turned out to be faulty with a crack.
2nd try, after a couple of followups it was replaced in Feb with another piece with damages and poor quality compared to the first one.
Third time lucky?? Not yet..
Its been almost 4 weeks, raising this issue with customer service and not even one email or response from Brosa. Have sent about 10 emails, submitted feedback on bad follow to CoFounder with still no luck.
- Poor customer service
- product quality
- no quality check...
Appalling After Sales Customer Service
I placed an order and waited three weeks for delivery. Item was large but well packed in a cardboard box. On opening box the top of the entertaining unit was smashed. We saw it was stored in delivery truck on it's end (where smashed). Immediately reported damage to Brosa and at first requested replacement as I paid the extra money for the purchase guarantee (waste of money). I wrote three emails, no response to any of them. After a week rang the company, fobbed off. Finally received an email response providing three options, but by this time...I requested a full refund (due to lack of customer service to that point) and collection of damaged cabinet. That was over two weeks ago and several more emails requesting update on where my refund is. No response received. The after sales service is appalling and significantly lacking (there is none). I would never deal with them again. Very disappointing as their products appear stylish.

Beware of fabric
Website Is easy to use and product range is great. We purchased all our furniture for our new home from Brosa however after a few months of use the fabric faded so badly the grey looked pink! Was advised this is not faulty but offered to refund furniture minus the 10% delivery charge as a gesture of goodwill. We replaced the fabric lounges for the velvet fabric and the dining chairs and bar stools with leather (at an additional cost) however we now have 4 bed frames and 3 office chairs that have all discoloured as they are made from the same c...rappy signature fabric that apparently discolours in sunlight and artificial lighting. Beware when selecting material for furniture, steer clear of the signature premium range unless you live in darkness!!
I purchased the Pampero dining table and just over a year and a half of owning it cracks started to appear along the edges of each side of the table with some cracks running through the middle of the table. This would also explain the sagging of the table as well. They weren’t just “surface” cracks they are structural cracks. After contacting Brosa they requested images which I had sent for them to reply with “image evidence suggests the concrete is not cracked it’s the paint coating. Also due to extreme light, artificial lighting, temperature, humidity and radiation could have contributed to the damage”. So basically don’t take it out of the box is what they are suggesting. Would NEVER purchase from Brosa again!!!!
Disappointing and dishonest service
I purchased the Sondra Sofa bed for $600 in 2016. The couch was pretty but uncomfortable but we had issues with the couches legs which resulted in structural issues with our couch. My issue was when we asked for a refund, I had serious issues with organising the return and getting back the full refund of the couch. I was told I could not return the couch unless it was in original packaging which means I had to source a couch sized box. When I finally organised this and returned the couch I was then charged $170 for the cost of the return. This ...is against Australian consumer law. See reference: https://www.accc.gov.au/consumers/consumer-rights-guarantees/repair-replace-refund#returning-the-product My issue is, that this is a very common occurrence as I was only refunded the cost of shipping upon my insistence. Looking at other negative reviews I have found a lot have people have had the same issue and haven’t known their legal rights like me. I would have sent at least 20 emails and had at least 10 phone calls regarding this return and refund. I have never left a bad review in my life but this experience has left me nothing but frustrated.
Questions & Answers
If only I’d read reviews before ordering and PAYING for my Bedhead from Brosa!!!
Ordered in October 2021 along with an Ottoman. Both promised as in store and delivered within a couple of weeks. Ottoman arrived December and lovely. Bedhead… NOTHING!!!! January 14 2022 still nothing. Told collected by Deliverer from Warehouse in a note by email, 4 weeks ago and that I would be contacted!
I have heard nothing, no longer promised
anything, if on its way where is it???
My Question Is: How can some customers give glowing FIVE star reports and others ONE star? No one has chosen stars in between! Quality is not an issue. ALL complaints, too numerous to count, relate to LACK of DELIVERY!!!!! HELP ME.
Hi Wondering whether to order but worried a about customer service if anything goes wrong. Has anyone had a refund?
I suggest you wait till at least February. Brosa is closed now and you'll deal with their call centre in the Philippines. They and their courier ANC are in total chaos. You have 21 days to change your mind. Pay with credit card too. I didn't have a pleasant experience with them and will get my ottoman delivered 6 weeks after ordering! It's all too stressful now, try them later.
We recently had to set up an apartment 2 days before Christmas. We were travelling from Adelaide to Melbourne and were only in Melbourne for 4 days, including Christmas Day. We only had one day for deliveries. They were great and the quality of the furniture is awesome.
The live chat was extremely helpful
And chased up delivery information etc for us. We chose products they had in stock
So that helped. We didn't have any complaints. The products were exactly as described.
Thanks for that.
Why does BROSA require full payment upfront if they cannot guarantee delivery times? Other furniture companies in Australia who sell items manufactured overseas take a down payment and require the remainder only when the item is in the ware house in Australia. Seems only fair, so why not BROSA?
