Microfiber sofas are easy to maintain and can withstand heavy use. They are stain-resistant and only require a damp cloth to clean spills. You can also invest in accessories like comfy pillows or a throw blanket to make the couch more your own.


Leather sofas are the perfect fabric in homes with kids. They can be wiped clean with a cloth, meaning any spills and stains can be quickly and easily mopped up. Being a natural material, a quick treatment with a leather conditioner once or twice a year will keep the sofa soft and supple.


Vinyl has many of the similar benefits as leather but can often be found at a lower price point. It is also easy to clean, requiring just a spray of some water before wiping away spills.


Wool sofas are highly durable. Cleaning stains on wool is easy, and dust can be removed with a quick pass of a vacuum cleaner.


Velvet sofas are soft to touch, comfortable to sit on, durable, and on-trend. Velvet comes in a range of colors, which are both water and fade resistant, making them ideal for durability. You can vacuum velvet on low power with a brush attachment to reduce wear on your sofa and protect its natural sheen.
