Hello AT, I found a two sofas I really love at Gus Modern. They are both Mid-Century Modern and both beautiful. I have kids though so I worry about which fabric to get. One only comes in a tweed and the other comes in a tweed and micro fiber. I want a light color, but I'm not sure what to go with...

Do I get the spec tweed that hides dirt, or will the micro fiber clean well enough that I don't need to worry about hiding the dirt??? Help! The links to the sofas and swatches are here and here. Thanks, Bobby Dear Bobby, Microfiber really does clean up well and is super tough, but personally we like the warmth and style of the tweed and think that it will age better and be more classic. Either way, you should do fine with the cleaning and the kids. It's more of a style choice in our minds. Anyone have a different or more informative opinion?
