    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.

Feeling GroovyConversation pits were all the rage in the ’70s, so the owners of this penthouse apartment above a cafe in Melbourne, Australia, embraced the decor of the decade too, to go with their sunken space. They chose white leather and shag carpet for the conversation pit they’d requested as part of a wider renovation. Located in the parents’ retreat, it was designed to enable the couple to have their friends over without disturbing their twin babies.

4. Shag carpet is purposely used in this uniquely designed space to tie in with the 70's theme decor (art, lighting and furniture).
