With ease! The microsuede is really durable, and machine washing is effective. Wash cold by itself, and hang dry - it’ll dry quickly! For the small stuff, we recommend spot cleaning with a moist cloth or a carpet/upholstery cleaner.
We tested 7 cleaning solutions 3 times each against 14 categories of stains across 10 fabric colors - that's 2940 tests - and determined Folex Carpet Spot Remover to be the best of the bunch. But almost any household carpet and upholstery cleaner will do the job.
Not a problem at all. Like on any upholstery, fur can cling to it a bit, so many people like to match the color of the Nugget to hide it. But unlike on other furniture, fur is extra quick and easy to clear off! Vacuuming or swiping with a lint roller both work like a charm. You can pick up or flip each piece effortlessly, so there aren't any nooks and crannies and unreachable spots - only simple flat surfaces.
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 Raleigh, 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, rated at 44 ILD units, for soft support. And 1.4 lb/ft3 foam, rated at 60 ILD units, ensures lightweight strength.
It’s CertiPUR-US certified to exceed safety standards. It’s mercury, lead, and formaldehyde free, and VOC’s are minimal to protect indoor air quality. We care about this stuff, so you can be carefree.
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, and only 33” wide (and twice as tall) when it’s folded into a chair position. It's 22.25” high to the top of the pillows in the standard configuration, and fits just as well in nooks and crannies as it does in big open rooms.
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 seat cushion (9 lbs), and the two triangle 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.
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 in 2018 we'll be doing our best to offer Nuggets to new friends in new places.
During the holidays, we ship orders 4-6 days after they’ve been placed. As soon as yours is on its way, you’ll get a tracking number in your inbox so you can follow the journey. Shipments to the eastern and southern United States take 1-2 business days, and shipments to the west coast take no more than 6.
We compress and roll and tightly pack your whole Nugget into one super small box. It's 15” x 16” x 34”, and weighs 31 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 sturdy base, soft seat cushion, and two supportive triangle pillows. You can also get discounted 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.
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. The only way to buy a Nugget is right here on our site..
All day. Create your masterpiece here.
All Nuggets are the same - same price, materials, size, etc. Solid color Nuggets have the same color across all four components – a safe choice for fitting in your home’s decor, but still cut out for bold play. If you’re feeling adventurous (or if your kiddo takes the reigns), you can mix and match those colors to explore the 5,500 possible combinations.
In March 2018 and beyond, yes!
Not right now. 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. But soon, when everything is set up just right, we just might…
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. And it will grow up with your kiddo – a 6 y/o and a 16 y/o enjoy it just as much, just differently. 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 seat cushion, and top it with the triangle pillows. 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 three Nuggets or fewer on nuggetcomfort.com. And it applies to the Nugget itself, not to color exchanges.
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!
No way. Definitely no harmful flame retardant chemicals were applied to the foam or the fabric. AND it still passes California’s TB-117 fire safety regulation.
It sure does. The dimensions are 66” x 33” - smaller in both directions than a standard twin bed, so sheets fit easily around the seat cushion, and pulling them around both the seat cushion and base will keep sheets really snug.
Pure black. Get it? Jetpack Black – it rhymes! It’s not blue at all, just a really beautiful black.
A deep, gorgeous navy blue, through and through!
A reddish coral. It’s not pink, and not orange, though it may have hints of those. It’s reddish, and coral - it’s that subtle and striking hue of a common starfish!
We are David and Ryan. We studied biology and photojournalism, respectively. And now we live Nugget. It's a business that keeps everything under one really busy roof - so design, manufacturing, branding, and distribution all work together and create the highest possible quality of stuff. We hope you like it.
