I'm looking for some BTDT tips about a new sofa/sectional. We're looking at buying a leather sectional with recliners, but I'm wondering about a dog with sharp nails and two children on the leather. Plus, I've heard stories about the leather feeling sticky in the summer, or cold in the winter. If we didn't get leather, we would get microfiber. And, since this is the Budget Board, where is the best place to look for long lasting furniture? We've had our current sofa for almost 15 years and it is still in decent condition-its just too small for our family now, so I want something built to last. Thanks for the help!
