We’ve tested a selection of popular furniture pieces, including sofas, couches, chairs, tables, rugs, and more.

Our furniture reviews and tests look at build quality, design, usability, and other important factors. We use the furniture in our homes and offices (where possible), putting it through normal wear and tear to better gauge real world performance.

Furniture Reviews

Our Creative Director, Kayla Hein, is a practicing interior architect and designer. She uses her considerable skills to analyze, test, and review every furniture piece on Modern Castle.

Her efforts, combined with our team at large, are designed help show how the furniture will perform in real homes.

  1. Hello, are you able to tell me the brand/model/color of the your floors at 4:03 of your Roomba j7+ vs s9+ vs i7+ – 5 Cleaning & Performance Tests Compared video posted 2 months ago? The color is exactly what we’re looking for.


    • Unfortunately, I’m not sure what color or brand it is. It’s the flooring from my old home, but not one that I picked out, so I’m unsure what it’s called.

      Sorry 🙁
