Well… unfortunately that only deterred him from chewing on the areas he showed interest in previously. He decided to chew on the couch in another spot.
I'm trying to figure out what provoked this behavior. He has been fine for the last handful of months. This probably started within the last week. He has numerous toys out for him to chew on. The areas he's chewing on furniture are spots he usually likes to sit. I don't want to start crating him as he has a decent amount of crate anxiety. I fear he might hurt himself chewing/pawing at the metal wires constantly.
