Pet-Friendly Furniture And Design Tips For Animal Lovers

Pet-Friendly Furniture And Design Tips For Animal Lovers

It’s not easy to find durable furniture and home decor pieces that are also beautiful and comfortable. No one wants to change their furniture every season just because your dog ripped it, or it didn’t last for any other reason. A high-quality home decor should withstand pet playtime and last years. Luckily, here at Grayson Living, we prepared some tips and house fittings for you to consider.

Shed-Proof Sofa for Animal Lovers

If you have a dog or even a cat, go for a leather sofa. Cats don’t seem to like leather as much as other materials. They prefer to sharpen their nails on the fabric sofa. But remember it is not a general rule, some cats might claw leather - especially if you don’t have a cat scratching post/mat.


 Leather is the easiest material to keep clean and maintain. It won’t collect as much dog hair as other fabrics. It’s also easier to clean when your pet drools all over it.


 Some leather furniture can be even more resilient due to a wax coating. That also makes your leather color more uniform and saturated but protects against any accidents that may occur. Semi-aniline leather is great for durability.

Durable Coffee Tables

You never know when your pet can jump on your coffee table or scratch the delicate surface. Avoid coffee tables with glass top - they may easily break or get scratched. The best option is a solid wood coffee table, like this Copeland Essentials Round Coffee Table. It won’t tip over, and the round cocktail table without sharp corners will protect your pet if they accidentally bump into it.


Pick the Pet-Friendly Upholstery for your Sofa and Chair

If you prefer fabric over leather, we still have some durable options for you! You want to make sure to select an upholstery that is resistant to scratches, stains, odor, and is easy to clean. Most of the brands we carry, especially Caracole and Bernhardt, have an amazing selection of long-lasting fabrics. Non-looped, microfiber, and microsuede fabrics are tough and are pet-friendly. The most durable is Sunbrella, which is an upholstery fabric that offers indoor furniture upholstery that uses intricate jacquard weaving and innovative yarn constructions and finishes to replicate the look and feel of fine interior fabrics. It will withstand drool stains and paw prints. Our Copeland furniture uses the most enduring Sunbrella upholstery. Let us know if you see any upholstered frame you love, and we’ll send you a sample of the performance fabric!
