It's that time of year–post Christmas sales!
This year, we're thinking of buying a new, larger, sectional sofa so there's lots of room for everyone...Dan & I can't sit together (comfortably) without one of the dogs being excluded or a squabble breaking out. Surprisingly, our existing sofa is still in good shape, except for a little duct tape on the arm thanks to Ben E.
My question: Dan wants leather, because he thinks it'll be more durable and dog hair won't stick to it--no need for a cover on the sofa, he says.
I'm thinking the dog claws'll scratch the leather, and/or one of 'em will think the sofa's a Wildebeest or something and KILL it.
Does anyone have experience with leather furniture and B's?
Or suggestions re: durable, dig resistant fabrics (microfiber?) & ways to protect the furniture? A friend suggested IKEA because they often sell extra covers for their sofas, but there's no IKEA nearby...My sister suggested a pattern or colour that duct tape would compliment or accessorize...d'ya think she was being sarcastic?
