Outdoor Performance Fabric

The Outdoor Nugget’s first line of defense.
This North Carolina-milled performance weave fabric is sun and stain resistant, made with a durable material that won’t fade, overheat, mold, or mildew.

Protective Inner Liner

Protecting the foam itself is a Nugget Liner Set,
double-layered with a 100% PU (polyurethane) material for waterproofing and a 100% polyester gray covering for durability and quality.

Think inside the box.
(Only this once!)

liner set

One Protective Liner Set

The unsung hero of the Outdoor Nugget. The Liner Set — which arrives folded up inside your box, and needs to be applied to your foam before use — may not be visible during play, but it’s doing its job, keeping ice cream, juice, and messy fruit from ruining your foam, and souring your day.

triangle pillows

Two Supportive Pillows

They say there's two sides to every story, but if the story is about our pillows, it has three. Use them for the columns of a coliseum, the seat of a construction vehicle, or just a backrest for cloud-watching and daydreaming in between.

soft cushion

One Soft Cushion

The cushion may be the Nugget's thinnest piece, but without it, tree-climbers and obstacle course daredevils would be in for a rough landing. It’s squishy and strong, so intrepid outdoor explorers can bounce back after big falls — just like the ones on TV.

base cushion

One Sturdy Base

No one likes to be on the bottom of the pile. Well, except for the base, that is. Down there it gets to provide stable, reassuring structure to the pieces above, so your backyard builds can reach the stars.

We bought two for our living room!

With younger kids and pets, I loved the idea of performance fabric for our couches. My husband and I wanted floor sofas for our living room and when I found these, I knew they would be perfect. They are "couches" in the evening for us to enjoy as a family and a world of imagination for the kids during the day. We bought two and configure them as a sectional. They are surprisingly firm and I think very well made.

Great for Older Kids too!!

Our kids have enjoyed many, many nights of slumber parties together this summer. It’s perfect for them to easily move around for watching movies, slumber parties, and special forts too!

Perfect deck addition!

We love our outdoor nugget! The kids play on it everyday the weather permits and we even use it as extra seating on our deck. We’ve laid out under the stars, built forts, and had jumping contests. I can’t rave about the fabric enough and living in Washington the liners have resisted the rain so well!

Fantastic!

The Outdoor Nugget has been such a wonderful addition to our outdoor play! My kids use it for everything! They love having picnics on it, using it as an aquarium, and using it as a fishing boat. I really love that it can get wet and I don't have to worry about the foam.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there any set up required?

Yes! The Outdoor Nugget will arrive covered in outdoor fabric, with the protective Liner Set packaged separately in the same box. The Liner Set must be added to the Outdoor Nugget before outdoor use. Simply remove the outdoor fabric from the foam, cover each piece of naked foam with the corresponding liner, and then put the outdoor fabric back on the Nugget.

Can I purchase an outdoor Cover Set?

Anything can happen down the road, but for now, the Outdoor Nugget is available in full Nugget form only. Since this is a new, limited product, this allows us to focus our operations and energy as efficiently as possible!

Will you offer more colors?

Currently, the Outdoor Nugget is available in one color: Hopscotch, a sidewalk-inspired, quartz gray. Though you never know what might happen down the road at Nugget!

What are the care instructions for the Outdoor Nugget?

The outer layer is made using a performance fabric that is one of the most stain resistant options on the market. Messes from ketchup, berries, and melted popsicles wipe off easily with a Clorox wipe, or a little soap and water.

For tougher spills, don’t worry! These fabrics are 100% bleach cleanable. Just scrape off any excess, then dilute 1-2 oz of bleach in 30 oz of water, blot the stain with the solution, rinse with water and let air dry — no need to worry about color fading, as the color is an integral component of the yarn (which is what makes it so stain resistant to begin with)!

*This performance fabric cannot be machine washed or dried and is spot-clean only.

Can I leave the Outdoor Nugget outside during storms?

While this woven performance fabric is meant to brave the outdoor elements (yes, even the kids!), we recommend moving the Outdoor Nugget under a covered patio when it’s not being used. If you happen to forget, or if an unexpected storm catches you off guard, not to worry — just leave it in the sun until it’s completely dry (in this case, we’d recommend removing the covers and hanging them to dry for a quicker drying time).

What’s included in my purchase?

You’ll receive four pieces (one base, one cushion, and two triangle pillows), all covered in a durable performance fabric. A Liner Set is included separately in the same box and needs to be added to the foam before play.

Can I use a Cover Set that I already have with a Liner Set to make my own outdoor product?

No. Our regular and double-brushed microsuede fabrics were not created for outdoor use. The Outdoor Nugget is made with a woven polypropylene fabric that is stain, mold, mildew, and sun resistant, specifically intended for outdoor play.

How long will the Outdoor Nugget be available?

If you have your heart set on the Outdoor Nugget, we recommend ordering as soon as possible. It's available in limited quantities, and we can't be sure how quickly it will sell out, but we do know that it won't be restocking again this year!
