Danielle, Brian and Chief Product Tester, Vivianne

Family made. Family tested. Family proud.

Hi. We‘re Danielle and Brian, parents of Vivianne (also known as Chief Product Tester) and proud creators of the Kozy couch.

Our story began simply enough. Danielle’s background is in special education and child development. Brian‘s background is in accounting and import business. So we make the perfect team, as parents and partners!

We were looking into a play couch for Vivianne and saw a need. From talking with other parents, we heard that not everyone has the room – or the budget – for a six-piece play couch.

So we set out to design the Kozy as a single unit of three pieces – two base cushions and a flat wedge back. The best part of the process was watching Vivianne “test” the samples. She absolutely loved playing on them.

We worked with multiple factories all over the world (including the US) and had endless designs. Our top priority was to ensure the Kozy was safe for kids. We use CertiPUR-US foam which is independently tested and verified to ensure there are no harmful chemicals. We also perform our own third-party lab testing to meet our quality standards.

We sweated the details on design features, too. We wanted a thicker base cushion for extra padding – so the Kozy has 10-inches of foam, as opposed to the competitor‘s 8 inches. We also aren’t a big fans of microsuede and worked with suppliers to find our fabric. It is soft, durable and much more comfortable. Just ask Vivianne!

And since we were planning on storing the couch against a wall, we wanted the triangle piece to have a flat wedge back. It’s great for sitting, tumbling, building, and simple to store.

We now have a product we love and are shipping to customers all over the country. Some families have ordered multiple units, mixing and matching colors, too.

It‘s easy to get creative with a Kozy couch. We love seeing how kids use their Kozy. Tag us on Instagram @kozycouch. And of course, we’re here for any questions. Send us a message and we‘ll get right back to you.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Kozy Family!

~Danielle, Brian and Vivianne
