My partner and I have had the Drake Modular 3 seater for about a month now after waiting 20 weeks for it. Initially it was great and was like the model one in the showroom, however now it is already sinking at the middle and the chaise. We can almost feel the wooden beams and from the front view, we can see that it is already diagonal from the part we lounge most on compared to other side. Not sure if this is intended or to be expected but this is pretty disappointing as we've only had it for a short amount of time and it is already showing signs of wear. Don't know if I'd recommend Brosa as it seems like their showroom and photos don't really reflect the product you get.
Faulty product, zero service.
Bought a sideboard which when it first came out of the box I was delighted with. It looked to be really good quality however once I'd put the legs on and stood it up I saw one of the doors won't close, the hinges weren't attached properly by manufacturer so it just hangs open.
Sent email photos and video to Brosa explaining the issue and 10 days later zero response except an email saying it would take them up to a week to respond.
Thats far below the minimum standard of service I'd expect.
There was also a payment glitch where the money came out of my account but no order confirmation, item still showing in my cart however that got fixed up in a few days.
Delay and no communication
We ordered our sofa at the start of April. ETA was July. Each time we checked the order tracker the ETA was pushed out further, however zero communication from Brosa. Last update indicated ETA mid-September. Meanwhile the same sofa on their website still showing 10-12 weeks delivery. Took several emails/calls/online chat to finally get a resolution and received a full refund. Brosa definitely needs to improve on after sales service and communication.
Problem after problem with damaged goods
I ordered an outdoor setting, corner lounge with coffee table. Delivery of the items took over 2 months. We are really happy with the lounge, however the coffee table came out of the box damaged beyond repair. Arranging return and replacement of the item was a hair-pulling out experience. The return slip was never sent to me, I stayed home for 2 days waiting pick up that couldn't occur. I received no support or returned emails during this time. Then I re-booked the return pick up on my own, and when the replacement arrived it was also damaged. It was a stressful shopping experience to say the least.
Very poor after sales customer service.
Whilst products appear to be of good quality, it's mostly cheap board with a really thin coating of paint. Screws are flimsy, some holes do not align. Products chip very easily with minimum effort, and there is very poor customer follow up to any inquiries on this. I'm still waiting after 2 weeks to hear if I can purchase a replacement part for a cabinet. You will likely notice blemishes on your product when unwrapping because of inconsistent manufacturing. No real difference in qaulity as opposed to Ikea, just trading off the latest on trend fad.
Ridiculous wait for delivery
Ordered the Frank 2 seater lounge in blue, matching armchair and ottoman in September 2020. Lounge was delivered in October, and is a nice product to look at but not comfortable to sit on, there is not much cushioning on the seat, making it quite hard to sit on. The chair was delivered in February and is similar to the lounge in terms of comfort. Seven months on, I am still waiting for the ottoman. Apparently it may be delivered in May 2021. Overall, products are stylish, not comfortable to sit on and take many months to be delivered. Brosa has...emailed out a message from their CEO twice now to apologize for the delay, blaming it on COVID and industrial action at the ports in Australia. I can only assume that this means that numerous customers are affected by this extreme delay in delivery times.
Poor quality - Huber side and end tables
They must spend all their money on marketing. The Huber Side Table and End Table that I purchased took 22 weeks to arrive. The quality of the parts is poor. One part of the metal legs does not align with the frame and juts out slightly. There are dents and flaws in the metal base. The marble tops came with some slight scratches to them. They look as though I've purchased a second hand product. I wouldn't buy from this place again.
Bad experience after purchase
1. We had a good experience in the showroom, very helpful consultant.
2. Happy with range of products and ordered the Austin Full Sleeper Modular Sofa with Storage (Dark Gull Grey) and confirmed delivery.
3. Initially very disappointed with the product and this is why. On Friday 5 Feb, I received a text saying the confirmed delivery on Saturday 6 Feb was now not possible and to contact them to arrange another day after the 11 Feb. This was not acceptable as we had sold our older coach, so I called and explained this. Ok, so now we were re-en...stated for Saturday delivery. The team delivered and left, on opening the box, we discovered the base of sofa was damaged. Called again and after much explaining and stating this must be collected immediately, another team did come and get it. Now we have no coach. More calling to have a replacement delivered. The replacement sofa was delivered today Wednesday 10 Feb. Instead of being coachless for 1 day, we were coachless for 5 days. Happy with the replacement product, but very disappointed to received a damaged product and the inconveniences. 4. Product was easy to assemble.
Bed looks great but assembly is appalling
Ordered the Scot bed from Brosa. It came on time and looks nice. Big problem though. The two men who assembled it didn't have a clue how to do it. End product is a bed that is missing bolts, no nuts used at all, head board is wobbly and some of the wrong bolts in the wrong place= substandard, unsafe piece of furniture. My husband is 80 years old and we are sleeping on a mattress on the floor until they can get someone back who hopefully knows what he/she is doing. Customer service very nice but so far no action. Concerned about our safety as well. Be ware.
Item destroyed in transit -terrible communication
I cannot review the product (bed) as it never arrived due to freight issues. Delivery was delayed for weeks (no explanation as it was in stock) I chased the freight company directly multiple times (Mainfreight) who had separated the boxes (sent to different warehouses) but eventually delivered 1 box and later admitted they drove a forklift into the other. Brosa never followed up delivery with them or communicated with me. In order to get action I rang Brosa directly-they dont answer emails or respond to their chat function.

Prices are reasonable as items come with missing parts.
Prices are reasonable as items come with missing parts. We have waited 5 months for an order that said 4 weeks when ordered and we are literally sleeping on the floor and they can’t tell us when the parts will arrive. They can’t even get organised to send the parts as we have had lots of people contacting us about the issue. When you spend thousands on new furniture you expect to not sleep on the floor.
Should not have passed quality control! False advertising.
Bought the small Martin buffet cabinet off this company. I went on here and looked at reviews before going ahead with purchasing as it had a good rating. On their Website/Facebook/Insta photos the Martin range looked lovely made out of mango wood which I had never seen and overall looked great. Ordered it and as this company is in Melbourne and I'm in Qld I think they were trying to palm off a dodgy one. I opened the box and I thought the stain they had used was faulty as the front piece was fluro yellow. Stuck out so badly! Called them and lon...g story short they said it was the unique colour of the wood and we could send it back but wouldn't refund us our postage which was nearly $240. Lot's of emails back and forth and in the end after I said I was going to take it up with consumer affairs they gave me $100 back so I'm still out of pocket. Not happy, it wasn't a "change of mind" return, it was false advertising and I hope it doesn't happen to anyone else. First pic is the buffet we received and the one off their website. Brosa if you read this update your social media photos to show all the "unique" colours!
Sofa bed extremely uncomfortable and firm
I bought the Siesta 3 Seater Sofa bed, it looks great and is not too bad as seating but it is extremely uncomfortable to sleep on. The website lists this item as 'snug' not too soft, but not too firm, however it is very firm and painful to lay on. It is disappointing as if I knew it was actually firm not snug, I would not have purchased this. Waste of money!
Awesome team in Fitzroy showroom, but terrible product and after-sales experience
Awesome team in the Fitzroy showroom. Great quality furniture for the price! Biggest let down was the muck around with a confirmed delivery being cancelled without any contact, essentially wasting an entire day waiting. Online customer service didn't help the situation by twice confirming the delivery when we suspected it wasn't coming, only to be informed at the end of the day that the items were not going to be delivered for a further month. Disappointing delivery experience after a great showroom experience.

Looks good but needs replacing after 18 months.
I brought a chesterfield about two and a half years ago. It looks beautiful and still does. Problem is the foam has gone completely flat. I first contacted them a year ago about how flat it was and then life happened. Yesterday my elderly mother came around and couldn't get up as she sank into the flat bit. I was under the impression there was a ten year warranty but no - only one for the cushion. I rang brosa today and was told it was the way I was using the couch that was the problem. I use it to watch tv at night and it is mostly just me and...my dog. I told them this but they kept saying its how you use it. I am bewildered at how else I am meant to use it. I think it was meant to be just looked at. I did buy another single chair I gave to my neighbours son as it was too small for an adult but figured that was my bad for not measuring it up. Anyway by the couch if you are happy to pay a yearly upgrade for the foam in the seat - if not save your pennies and buy something of better quality that you wont have to ditch after a couple of years. These days things shouldnt just end up in a landfill.
Questions & Answers
We just took delivery of the Osaka extension table and upon assembly the table doesn’t extend enough to put the extension piece in. What do I do now?
