Tips for a Pet-Friendly Home

Tips for a Pet-Friendly Home

For all pet-owners, it's important to find durable furniture and home decor items that are also charming and comfortable. None of us wants to look for new furniture every few months just because your pet tore it, or it only didn't last for any other reason. High-quality home fittings should withstand pet playtime and last for years. Luckily, here at Grayson Luxury, we prepared some advice and house decor items for you to consider.

Durable Sofa for Animal Lovers

If you have a dog or a cat, go for a leather sofa. It's way easier to pick up a dog's hair from leather than to vacuum it from a fabric sofa. Cats prefer to sharpen their nails on the fabric sofa over a leather one. But some cats might claw even leather. Make sure you have a cat scratching post/mat to prevent that.

Leather is the most suitable material to keep clean and maintain. It won't collect as much pet's hair as other fabrics. It's also easier to clean when your furry friend 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 deep but protects against any accidents that may occur. Semi-aniline leather is excellent for durability.

Durable Coffee Tables

Pets can easily scratch the delicate surface of a coffee table. Avoid coffee tables with glass top - they may crack or get scratched if your pup is not being too careful. 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 furniture made from cozy fabric instead of leather, we have some long-lasting options for you! You want to make sure to select an upholstery that is repellent to scratches, odor, stains, and is easy to clean. Most of the brands we carry, especially Caracole and Bernhardt, have an astounding variety of durable fabrics. Non-looped, microfiber, and microsuede materials are sturdy and pet-friendly. The toughest 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 beautiful interior materials. It will withstand 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!
