We have fun working at Nugget because for customers, e-commerce is a super convenient way to buy a couch. It should be super safe and secure too. We don't collect or store your personal information without telling you, nor do we sell information to any other companies.
There are just two situations in which we do ask for your information: during newsletter signup and during checkout. If you do provide your email to be added to our newsletter, we will keep your email address on file. During checkout we will collect credit card information for processing, but none of that information is stored post-purchase. Your purchases are conducted through a secure SSL certified Stripe-powered checkout.
If you email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or any other email address, you will not be automatically added to any newsletter or email subscription without your consent. No one enjoys spam, so we don't send any your way.
The covers are removable for when you walk across your Nugget with muddy shoes. The microsuede fabric is really durable and won't shrink or fade in the wash – but we recommend spot cleaning with moist cloth or a carpet cleaner. That's way easier than taking the covers off and putting them back on.
We tested 7 cleaning solutions 3 times each against 14 categories of stains across 8 fabric colors - that's 2352 tests - and determined Zep High-Traffic Carpet Cleaner to be the best of the bunch. But almost any household carpet and upholstery cleaner will do the job.
Feel free to bring the Nugget to dry outdoor places like the patio or deck, but don't leave it there. Direct outdoor sunlight fades the fabric colors, and the Nugget isn't waterproof — which will mean some soggy bottoms if rain clouds roll in.
Carpet and rugs, hardwood and tile, and anything in between (and indoors). It doesn't have to sit on anything specific like box springs or legs or mats.
Just put it together! It's ready to rock.
Every Nugget is manufactured one-at-a-time in Durham, North Carolina at Nugget HQ. We source materials from Holly Springs, NC, Mt. Airy, NC, and High Point, NC.
It's a harmony of open-cell polyurethane foams, cloaked in soft and durable microsuede fabric to achieve that elusive “just right” feel. We use 1.8 lb/ft3 foam, rated at 34 Indentation Load Deflection (ILD) units, for flexible comfort. Then 1.5 lb/ft3 foam is rated at 44 ILD units, for soft support. And 1.4 lb/ft3 foam, rated at 60 ILD units, ensures lightweight strength.
It's 33” deep and usually 66” long in its standard configuration, but it's 84” (7 feet) long when you extend it with the triangle pillows for your naps. It's 22.25” high with the pillows on top, and fits just as well in nooks and crannies as it does in big open rooms. Check out a diagram of all the dimensions here.
The Nugget is somewhere between a bean bag and a futon, but it's not either one of them. It sits at the just-right height of 8.75” for delightful plop-downs and easy hop-ups.
The whole Nugget weighs 27 lbs. That's the sum total of the base (12 lbs), the mattress (9 lbs), and the two pillows (3 lbs each).
It fits in closets, it fits under beds, and it folds up and moves swiftly to come in and out of hiding. See a diagram of its folded dimensions here.
Most likely! It fits in small cars like Honda Civics, so if you have anything that size or bigger, The Nugget is your road trip companion. Just make sure it has plenty of snacks and bathroom breaks.
Yep, no matter where you live in the contiguous United States, you pay $0 for a fully functional couch to arrive on your doorstep. We repeat: the 48 adjacent states and Washington D.C. are fair game for completely free shipping. We're not crazy. We're just really good at squeezing an entire couch into a small orange box.
Nope – sorry! But our neighbors in Canada can order Nuggets on Wayfair. Alaska and Hawaii friends: you all are a little too far from us in Durham, NC for shipping to be free or cheap…
Within 24 hours of your order, you'll receive a tracking number and email confirmation that your Nugget is on its way home. From there, shipping time will be anywhere between 1-5 business days, depending on your distance from Nugget HQ in Durham, NC.
We compress and roll and tightly pack your whole Nugget into one super small box. It's 15” x 16” x 34”, and weighs less than 30 lbs.
Immediately. Cut open the packaging and POOF! — your Nugget will grow to almost-full-size in a minute, and definitely-full-size by the end of the day — and it's ready to use right away. You're all set to explore the great indoors.
Even though it will feel like a million bucks, it's not going to be ready for a fancy photoshoot just yet. It was compressed by more than 2000 pounds to get down to its shipping size, then had a long journey to your doorstep, so it's going to have some wrinkles it might be self-conscious about. A quick ironing will take care of them right away. But they'll disappear on their own over time.
We're glad you asked..
Take it out as soon as possible. It can stay smushed up in there for about a month, so don't worry about it, but the shorter time it stays in its cardboard confines, the faster it poofs out to full size.
The Nugget is a set of four pieces - a base, mattress, and two pillows. You can also get multipacks of Nuggets, so a 2-pack would be two sets of those four pieces, a 3-pack would be three sets of four pieces, etc. And the colors of all these pieces can be selected individually using our color picker.
We sure do, because the only thing more fun than a Nugget is multiple Nuggets. Save $25 on a 2-Pack. Save $50 on a 3-Pack. And take $25 off every Nugget after that. Just add the Nuggets you want to your cart, and the discounts will automatically apply!
You're in the right place. At various times, solid color Nuggets will be available at Wayfair, Amazon, and Rooms To Go, but nuggetcomfort.com is the only place you can get a Nugget with multiple colors. It's also the only place you can customize your own!
All day. Create your masterpiece here.
All Nuggets are the same - same price, materials, size, etc. Only the colors are different. We displayed some of our most popular ones to make it easier for you to choose, but you can use the color-picker to mix and match and customize your own if you want to explore some of the other 5,500 possible color combinations.
No. We know kids love to use the pillows to turn the floor into the best seat in the house, and adults rave about them as reading pillows in bed. But we designed things (like the fabric cut patterns and the packaging and the tools to compress and ship the Nugget) to be perfect for our Big Kahuna – the whole Nugget. So we focus only on making the whole Nugget as perfectly as possible.
Yes. We are headquartered here, so the State requires us to collect sales tax on sales within NC.
We don't apply sales tax to your purchase because we operate in NC.
If you're old enough to read this, and maybe even if you're not, yes.
Yes. If you want, you can sit twice as high by folding both. And you can carry both pieces like suitcases by using their handles.
A really long time. Because none of the pieces are attached to each other, your Nugget can't break. The microsuede fabric is durable enough to stand up to jumping kids and dog claws. Dog teeth from a determined chewer might be a different story.
Think about the difference between a piñata and a set of bowling pins. A piñata breaks and stays broken. Bowling pins get knocked down and then get set back up, over and over again. We made the Nugget to work like bowling pins – it can come apart and easily be put back together. So your little bowling ball of a kid can play hard, and then sit soft.
It's extremely light for a full couch (27 lbs total), and it's compact enough to carry, especially because it has carrying handles, and the separate pieces are way slimmer than doorways. But most importantly, it can be taken apart in a flash, and then put back together somewhere else just as quickly. It's basically begging to be moved around for movie nights and dancing sessions and story-time and bedtime.
Nope! The Nugget is made of strong, supportive foam — unbreakable and built to sit anyone and everyone who wants a seat. It's one size sits all.
None of the Nugget's four pieces are attached. They can easily separate when you want them to, but the friction from sitting and leaning back holds them in place. The fabric grips to fabric, but it feels ultra smooth to skin. It's not magic, but it's close. To see the friction in action, check out
Don't overthink it. It all goes together the way you'd imagine. Flop out the base, plop down the mattress, and top it with the triangles. You can do it in less than a minute...or 7 seconds once you're a pro.
Little kids and older kids in the playroom. Tweens and teens in the bedroom and bonus room. College dorms. And work-hard-play-hard office spaces. Basically it's for kids, and the kid in you.
It’s how you can rest assured you’re going to love the Nugget. We’re 100% confident in the product, so we want you to find out it’s 100% great for you. For 30 days with the Nugget, try it out, then keep it if it’s everything you imagined it could be. Or return it for free if you imagined something else. We can comfortably offer this trial period because returns happen almost never (had to toot our own horn there).
It applies to EVERY ORDER of a single Nugget on nuggetcomfort.com, not to orders of multi-packs.
Don’t understand how the pillows stick with just friction? Lean on ‘em yourself. Don’t believe it can easily transform into all the arrangements it can be? See how many things you can build in just a few minutes. Can’t imagine it’s as comfortable and supportive as it is, all at the same time? You get the picture.
Within the 30-Day Trial Period, returns are totally free – no money out of your pocket for shipping. Even beyond the trial, we’ll refund or replace any product with a manufacturing defect. Just email us at email@example.com, and we’ll make it right!
It sure does. The dimensions are 66” x 33” - smaller in both directions than a standard twin bed, so sheets fit easily around the mattress, and pulling them around both the mattress and base will keep sheets really snug.
Pure black. Not blue at all, just a really beautiful black.
We are David and Ryan. We studied biology and photojournalism, respectively. And now we live Nugget.
