How fabrics feel to me is as important as how they wear. Durable shouldn’t feel like a pumice stone and thankfully there are multiple brands that make indoor/outdoor and stain-resistant fabrics that have a lovely soft handle. This way you, your kids and guests can spill away, and all can be easily wiped up.
Fabric selections shouldn’t leave you stressed out or wanting to avoid sitting in certain rooms in fear they will be damaged. They should simply make you happy and serve the right purpose.
