Spoonflower's Shipping Update

Nugget is a modular, infinitely configurable play couch for little ones, and their team is looking for a repeating non-directional pattern featuring bright, color-blocked shapes to turn into a limited edition Spoonflower x Nugget couch. Just like the kiddos who create forts or reading nooks with their couch, your geometric design should fit nicely into multiple room styles.


What’s bright, bold and fun all over? A Nugget couch featuring the winning design in this week’s challenge, of course! Spoonflower is thrilled to partner with Nugget, a North Carolina-based furniture company during March for the Nugget Couch Design Challenge. For this special design challenge, the Nugget team is asking the talented Spoonflower designer community to join in their design planning of a special limited-edition patterned Nugget coming later this year.

The winning design, handpicked by Nugget from the popularly voted top 50, will receive a $500 cash prize and be featured on a Nugget Couch coming later this year!

Three important notes about your Nugget Design Challenge Entry:

The winning design will be limited to no more than eight colors during Nugget production so please limit your entry to no more than eight colors. Due to the cut-and-sew nature of Nugget manufacturing, your design challenge entry should be non-directional. *The Nugget team will work directly with the winning designer to get their design ready for Nugget’s printing process and to determine a licensing agreement. The winning design cannot be sold outside of Spoonflower, Roostery and Nugget.

Before you get started, learn more about Nugget and get to know the Nugget customer!
