Believe it or not, you don’t have to compromise beautiful interior design to have a pet at home. ShelterPop did an expert Q&A with Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams about pet-friendly fabrics, and they had some great suggestions. After advising training your dog and keeping its paws clean, they went over a few different types of textiles great for pet owners’ interior design.
Firstly, synthetic microfibers like faux suede are especially durable and let you easily wipe up spills. If you’re searching for furniture fabric, a washable slipcover is one smart way to go. And distressed leather is another pet-friendly fabric since it already has a distressed look; plus, it can be cleaned with a damp cloth or by dusting.
