I agree with Lynne. "Comfy" is very common in the U.S. but it is restricted to a) the feeling of physical comfort, and b) the physical things in which you are comfy, such as furniture, beds, pillows, cushions, and warm clothing.. It is informal, and it carries a sense of homeyness, domesticity, and comfort at the expense of style. It is the same kind of word as "snug" and "cozy." It suggests the idea of wriggling around a bit to find a comfortable position.
My (adult) son refers to the recliners in our living room as "the comfy chairs."
"I've turned on the gas fireplace and you can just sit here and get comfy, while I go to the kitchen and make some cocoa."
"I know it's getting shabby, but I still like my comfy chair."
