I just bought a house, and I only furnished two rooms. So far, the furniture has been getting destroyed in just a very, very short period of time. I have a 4 year old, a 3 year old, two mastiffs (one is a puppy), and a pug... and the five of them have done a number on my couch, chairs, and ottoman. The fabric, legs, and even frame. The furniture, the wood, all of it falling apart, lol. The couch is in the worst condition. They are all the linen/studded/tufted styles that I love right now. All were ordered from Home Decorators Collection, Wayfair, Overstock, etc...
I still like the same styles, but I want more durable options. Any suggestions on where I should look or what to look for? I was thinking leather, and I have been looking at Horchow a long time... but I know more expensive doesn't always mean better quality or more durable.
So I'm looking for an attractive but VERY durable sectional in the above mentioned style, no more than about 100" long, and two accent/lounge chairs. This would be for the family room so this is where everyone spends the most time, and I do let the mastiff puppy and the pug on the couch, so its gotta be scratch resistant, durable, and the frame needs to be able to handle weight and abuse.
I know that's a tall order... but I remember my partents' couches lasting decades of abuse, mine didn't last three months. Help!
