RH army duck fabric and cats

Posted by swgirl (My Page) on

Hi Everyone,

This is my first post. I've lurked for years and love the wealth of opinions and information I can get here.

We are thinking about buying the Martine chair from Restoration Hardware in Army Duck. I am curious if anyone has furniture with this fabric and cats. My cats scratch furniture.

The best fabric so far was my old couch in a khaki twill from now defunct Foley's. It never ripped---even with five cats going at it for 10 years.

So far nothing has held up like it. I'm wondering about this army duck fabric because someone told me that it was good for people with cats.

Any replies will be appreciated.

RE: RH army duck fabric and cats

The Army Duck is a very sturdy fabric compared to many 100% cotton fabrics. I would suggest plenty of cat scratching post in the room near the furniture with capnip. I a cat decides to scratch really nothing will help and no fabric can withstand the scratching. I guess how bad the fabric looks will depend on the weave and the stength of the fabric and this fabric will last longer than most as it has a tight weave and is fairly thick.
