We’ve put together a list of the most popular Nugget couch accessories.
The Nugget Comfort play couch is the latest craze among kids and parents alike. One of the reasons we love the Nugget couch is because it’s so versatile and open-ended. It can be manipulated and played with in endless ways. It provides hours of entertainment.
Though you don’t need anything in addition to the Nugget to appreciate its full glory, many Nugget owners are finding fun and unique ways to accessorize their Nugget.

We’ve compiled a list of the best Nugget couch accessories (with links included!):
The Nugget Comfort is made of microsuede, with the exception of one color, Harbour, which is made of a textured, double-brushed suede. Due to the nature of the fabric, felt pieces easily stick to the Nugget. Felt sticks to both fabrics Nugget makes (the original microsuede and double-brushed suede used on Harbour), but some argue that felt doesn’t stick as well as on Harbour as it does to the original Nugget fabric.
This opens up tons of possibilities to play with the Nugget. Kids can use the Nugget as a felt board or use felt to decorate and transform the Nugget. You can buy pre-made felt kits (some examples below), or buy sheets of felts to make your own felt pieces. For instance, you could cut out shapes for your child to play with and help teach concepts such as shapes, sizes and colors. You can also use felt pieces for imaginative play. You can transform your Nugget into a house or car by cutting out windows, wheels or a steering wheel. The possibilities are truly endless!

Many people are getting rugs to go with their Nugget. The Nugget can be used on hardwood floors, but most would agree that having the Nugget on a rug enhances the overall experience. Certain Nugget configurations are simply impossible on a wood floor as the Nugget will just slip. Having the Nugget on a rug also adds to the safety of kids using the Nugget. Finally, many enjoy the design aspect of pairing a rug with their Nugget. Finding the perfect rug that compliments your Nugget is a fun and rewarding endeavor. For those that have multiple Nuggets in multiple colors, finding the perfect rug may be a bit more challenging. Buying a rug is often the first Nugget couch accessory people end up buying!
Another great accessory that goes great with the Nugget Comfort couch are throw pillows. Throw pillows add to the function and beauty of the Nugget. With throw pillows alone, you can make the Nugget look sleek and sophisticated or fun and whimsical.
