The material of the sofa is also important to consider.

Cotton- for example is one of the most cost-effective options, that takes patterns and colours well, making it highly versatile. Also nice as it have a strong resistance to fading, really important if your sofa will be in direct sunlight. A downside to cotton is that it can hold stains, opting for a intricate pattern could be an idea to see them less.

Linen- is slightly less tight than cotton, giving it that characteristic texture that can range from smoothly and lustrous to chunky and nubby. Linen is a delicate subject. It wrinkles and stains readily, which makes it difficult to maintain. When pets, kids and any sofa dinner eater are in the house, linen material might want to be avoided.

Velvet- is luxurious, soft, and delightful to the touch. Pro of velvet is that takes colours exceptionally, creating uniquely vibrant hues with a lot of depth and richness. Cons, they stains easily.

Microfibre- cost-effective and highly resistant to stains, an excellent alternative fabric choice. The one exception is that it may attract hair and fur, so it isn't the greatest piece of furniture for households with pets.

Leather- a luxury fabric! Sophisticated, resistant to stains and durable. A fabric that is highly versatile, which can work well pretty much with any style home. Leather is an allergy-friendly material, which is perfect for those in your family who suffer from allergies. The main cons of leather are: price, colours. Due to his nature leather price is higher than the other materials, if you are a person that like to change often the décor of your house, this material will cost more compare to other fabrics. The colours of leather are limited.


If you have pets, you'll want to take them into consideration when choosing a sofa. Choose a fabric that is durable and easy to clean. For example leather is a good choice for durability, but keep in mind that it can be scratched by pets. Most important, be sure to choose a style that your pet will love!
