The easiest couch ever. That’s what we called The Nugget when it first debuted on Kickstarter in 2014. To us, "easy” meant a couch designed to be more carefree and versatile than what we grew up on. The positive response pushed us to do something not so easy — set up the infrastructure for manufacturing, selling, and shipping the things ourselves. Our direct-to-you approach means higher quality, lower prices, better customer service, and more time building a company we hope you’ll love.

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. It’s not magic, but it’s close. To see the friction in action, check out the product tour:
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.
Yes, no matter where you live in the United States, you pay $0 for a fully functional couch to arrive on your doorstep. We repeat: to all 50 states, including Hawaii and Alaska. We promise we’re not crazy. We’re just really good at squeezing an entire couch into a small orange box.
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.
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.
Every Nugget is manufactured in Durham, NC. We get flexible foam (open-cell polyurethane) from Barnhardt Manufacturing Company in Mt. Airy, NC, and we source fabrics from Shanghai through Thompson-Bump Textiles in High Point, NC.
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 two triangle pillows for your naps. It’s 23” tall with the pillows on top and can fit in nooks and crannies and big open rooms. Check out the specifics here.
The Nugget™ is somewhere between a bean bag and a futon, but it’s not either one of them. It sits just right at 8.75” for delightful plop-downs and easy hop-ups.
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.
Outdoor lounging on the Nugget feels great, but like other guilty pleasures, we wouldn’t make a habit of it. Too much direct sunlight can eventually fade the fabric colors, and the Nugget isn’t waterproof — which will mean some soggy bottoms if rain clouds roll in.
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.
It sure does. The dimensions are 66” x 33” - smaller in both directions than a standard Twin bed, so pulling the sheet around both the mattress and base will keep it snug.
Right here! And at various times, solid color Nuggets will be available at Wayfair, Move Loot, and Rooms to Go. But nuggetcomfort.com is the only place you can Build Your Nugget and mix ‘n match to your liking.
All Nuggets are the same - same price, materials, size, etc. Only the colors are different. We selected and displayed some of our favorites to make it easier for you to choose, but you can use the color-picker to Build Your Own if you want to explore some of the other 4,096 possible combinations.
Not if you live outside of North Carolina. For our North Carolina neighbors, state law requires it.
Soon, definitely. You’re gonna have to hang tight for a little while. We want to make sure we’re running like a well-oiled machine before we tackle international orders in 2016. In the meantime, hop on our Nugget HQ newsletter so you don’t miss the big international debut!
Every Nugget comes wrapped up tightly and packed in a box. Cut open the packaging and POOF! — your Nugget will grow to almost-full-size in a minute, then full size in a day — and it’s ready to use right away. You’re now ready 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 crushed 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.
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 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 you for information: during newsletter signup and during checkout. If you do provide your email to be added to our Nugget HQ newsletter, we will keep your email address on file, but no other personal information. 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 Shopify checkout.
If you email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, or any other company address, you will not be automatically added to any newsletters or email subscriptions without your consent. No one enjoys spam, so we won’t send any your way.
