    Smile warm and cozy/comfortable

    It's really cold outside; let's stay inside where it's warm and cozy.


    Is cozy interchangeable with comfortable? I presume it is but are there marginal differences in meanings? Thanks.

    Cosy/cozy means comfortable, warm and secure. You can be comfortable and not cosy.

    Re: warm and cozy/comfortable

    For example, my chair at work has about 14 different adjustments to make sure that I'm comfortable. But there's nothing cozy about it.
