Let’s jump in and compare the two!

What are the differences between a Nugget and a Cushy Couch?
Cushy Couch is another popular Nugget alternative, especially for Canadians!
Based on reviews on Facebook, the foam is not as sturdy for builds as compared to the Nugget.
However, the Cushy couch is said to be very lightly compressed so it fluffs up a lot faster than the Nugget. Read about the Nugget foam expanding!
There are 2 interesting additions that the Cushy Couch has available.
First is the Cushy Camper, a waterproof outdoors version. This is super cool if you like to camp, watch movies outdoors, or lounge outside.
They also offer expansion kits, including cubes beams and rectangles. I have heard that these don’t hold mich weight, but they are cool for building!
The Nugget is made of microsuede that is soft and comfortable.
The Cushy Couch covers are said to be softer and more velvety than the Nugget covers.
Nugget covers are machine washable, hang to dry.
Cushy Couch suggests spot cleaning when possible, but they can be machine washed on delicate.
Nugget comes in 3 permanent colors – black, gray, and navy – and a rotating slate of seasonal colors. There are currently 15 limited edition colors!
The Cushy Couch comes in 8 colors – oyster, midnight, avocado, fawn, steel, orchard, pacific, navy.
Rectangular cushions are 33″ x 66″.
The Cushy Couch is exactly the same, 33″ deep, 66″ long.
Ease of purchase & delivery time
Nuggets currently have a 2-3 week lead time on delivery.
Cushy Couch is available immediately and is said to ship VERY quickly.
Nugget sells for $229 with free shipping in the USA.
Cushy Couch sells for $319.
