Hello AT,

I'm about to buy a couch and it's that "microfiber suede" material. Is that really as easy to clean and maintain as they say? It very expensive and I'm not sure if it's worth it. Should I go with a different texture or material or with the microfiber. Hmmm...

Thanks! April

Dear April,

In our experience, yes, it is easier to clean and maintain and it's warm to the touch as well. That said, we ALWAYS advocate a natural fiber whenever possible, but with upholstery that is extremely hard to find. Everything is a hybrid.

Our short opinion is that if you love it and can afford it, it's worth your while.

Anyone else?
