The Nest Q&A

I need to update my couch. The problem is I have two dogs that shed a ton. So I need to hide the hair and find a fabric that won’t stain easily. Any suggestions?

When it comes to wear and tear, the easiest material to live with when you have pets is leather—fur will slide right off. Turned off? Don’t be. Not all leather is stodgy; many models are ultra-modern. If you’re worried about scratch marks from paws or are set on reupholstering the sofa you already have, go with an ultra-suede fabric—it’s durable and easy to clean. Crypton Super Fabrics makes a completely indestructible line that has plenty of color options.
