    Hi @mcrkms,

    I wouldn't suggest white in a high use area. The conversation pit is in a parent's retreat area on an upper floor, where dirt is less likely to get walked in and it is away from direct sunlight so is unlikely to get much wear and tear. Red wine is the biggest risk. I pour salt onto red wine stains and that seems to work to soak up the colour, then vacuum it up the next day.

    There has been a black Italian leather 80's couch passed down in our family over the years, in houses with large dogs, and it has survived unscathed. Leather doesn't collect dog fur.

    Natural materials change over time, that is part of their beauty.
