Pet-Proof Your Furniture With These Materials

As New Jersey and Pennsylvania’s number one provider of custom upholstered chairs, sofas, restaurant booths, and more, Peroni’s Upholstery has handled countless pieces of pet-damaged furniture. If you are looking for ways to pet-proof your furniture with new upholstery, look no further — here are three upholstery materials you can use in your home.

3 Upholstery Materials for Pet-Proof Furniture

Tight-Weave Fabrics

If you have dogs, cats, or other pets with claws that frequently get caught on your furniture, tight-weave fabrics may be just what you need. Claws won’t snag as easily on tightly-woven fabrics, and hair and dirt won’t show as much if you opt for a darker color or something that matches your furry friend. Canvas and denim are two tight-weave fabrics to consider.

Synthetic Microfiber

Synthetic microfiber upholstery can technically be classified as a tight-weave fabric, but it’s pet-proofing properties are so fantastic that the material deserves its own spot on this list. Microfiber is highly resistant to rips and scratches, and removing pet hair is as easy as a simple swipe of the hand. Plus, a bit of soap and water is usually all you need to remove stains!


Leather furniture upholstery is perfect for pet owners because of its durability and how easy it is to clean. But not all leather is the same — if you are buying a new sofa or getting custom reupholstery for pet-damaged furniture, you may want to avoid leather that is very smooth, as smoother leathers tend to scratch easily. If you have cats, your best bet would be leather that already has a “distressed” look to it — just in case.

Show Your Pets (and Furniture) How Much You Love Them

Do you love your pets but hate having furniture that isn’t compatible with animals?

The owner is super friendly, explains everything, and knows what he's doing. He recovered two cushions for us and will be doing two chairs and an ottoman after the holidays. Very happy with the quality and the turnaround.

Peroni's upholstery has exquisitely cared for my grandmother's 105 year old dining room set, from reupholstering its torn leather seats, to re-gluing the wobbly chairs. The set looks like new! Peroni's team is professional, highly-skilled, for even the most challenging repair jobs, and the outcome is always BEAUTIFUL! I've used Peroni's for years, and have never been disappointed! Their pick-up and delivery service is the best!

Rich reupholstered our decades-old sofa and the pillows for a couple of chairs. His work is excellent and he wants his customers to be happy. He also cleaned and refringed several Oriental rugs and they were gorgeous
