Many clients opt for Sunbrella fabrics or faux leather/vinyl for ease of use and simpler cleanup. Fabrics with stain repellents like Teflon or NanoTex are a great option for back cushions which receive less wear and tear but are still at risk for food stains.

Built-ins are also a great option for libraries or play rooms, as they can be proportioned to fit the space more effectively than sofas or chairs.
