A furniture company I have purchased from is replacing my couches since I bought a warranty for my last ones and they have completely fallen apart on their own. Which do you think will last longer? Fabric I can wash but I'm scared about spills, and leather cleans up easily but I'm scared of it getting punctured. (I'm buying a warranty regardless but I'd like some input)

My vote is for leather. We had microfiber couches when we first got married and kept them thru 2 kids. They say they are easy to clean but mine never cleaned up that well. You could always see water stains or spills. We bought a huge leather sectional about 3 years ago. I LOVE IT! It has held up so well. Even with 3 kids and 2 dogs. We have no punctures, tears, or anything.

We were leaning more towards leather so I'm glad almost everyone agrees and it eases my mind about no tears, even with a warranty its a pain in the butt to call the company and get someone in to fix it (with this set it took 10 months of complaints and 6 home visits for them to finally agree to replace it).

I refuse to get cloth anything cars/ furniture. My son has peed our cloth couch too many times we went and put a leather couch and love seat in layaway

I would choose leather everything.

If you get cloth get removable microfiber and scotch guard. If I couldn't remove my covers my couch would be as good as dead.
