In my never ending search for things that are both kid friendly and comfortable, I bring you a roundup of hopefully just that – per your request. Sectionals used to be banned from living rooms, relegated to the TV or family room but no longer. You can spread all of your body parts over many a section, while watching that boob tube and cuddling with those kiddos or pets in style these days.
So we did a ton of research on sectionals that are stain resistant AND attractive. A few notes – we haven’t personally sat on these nor tested them by spilling a blackberry/wine/coffee smoothie on them. So before you click ‘buy’ go sit on these bad boys and make sure that comfort-wise they are for you.
The first roundup is where the sofa fabric is already treated in stain repellant. There are many ways that this can be done, some organic, some well I’m assuming less organic. You always have an option of buying ANY fabric and hiring a company to come to your house to stain treat everything (including rugs) and there are many companies that are non-toxic, at least in LA that can do so.
But if you want some that are pre-treated and just need a bit of soap and water to wipe off, here you go:
1. Neutral Upholstered 2 Piece Sectional Sofa | 2. Campbell Custom Sectional | 3. Maxwell Modular Upholstered Sectional | 4. Westin Sectional | 5. Barton L Sectional | 6. Sydney Sectional | 7. Bryant L Sectional | 8. Maxwell Sectional | 9. Genesis 2 Piece Sectional | 10. Cloud Modular L-Shaped Sectional 11. Living Reversible Sectional | 12. Anton Sectional | 13. Reid Sectional Chaise | 14. Miller Sectional
Now, there are other fabrics that are naturally easy to wipe up – these tend to be 1 million percent synthetic but no longer is our only option ultra-suede (you know the fabric that leaves a perfect imprint of your bum as you get up – forever memorializing that shape). Most poly velvets are really easy to wipe up (like our new sofa in the family room) and if it’s called ‘performance velvet’ you should feel confidant that your kids can eat pizza and popcorn while watching Frozen (true story – Sunday night) without feeling too much worry.
1. Feelgood Sectional | 2. Slub Velvet Glenlee Left Sectional | 3. Desmond Sectional | 4. LRG Sectional | 5. Andes 3 Piece Chaise Sectional | 6. Jasper Corner Sofa | 7. Velvet Cardiff Sectional | 8. Crosby 4 Piece Sectional | 9. Harmony 2 Piece Chaise Sectional | 10. Velvet Mina Left Sectional | 11. Kensington Upholstered Chaise Sectional | 12. Stowe Sectional | 13. Lounge II 3 Piece Sectional Sofa | 14. Modern Charcoal Grey Armless Corner Sectional
Lastly for those of you who want even more control over ensuring that you can remove, wash or even get your sofa laundered, a slip cover is a great option, too. It’s a particular look but one that I really like as it is softer, more traditional and you can even have white linen if you are comfortable with some serious stain fighting bleach (or whatever the new hipster equivalent of bleach is).
1. Comfort Square Arm Slipcovered Sectional | 2. Basketweave Linen Tassa Sectional | 3. Belgian Track Arm Slipcovered Sectional | 4. Loft Modern Slipcovered Corner Sectional | 5. Olivia Sectional | 6. Kearney Sectional | 7. Warner Sectional | 8. Vallentuna Sectional | 9. Carlisle Slipcovered Sectional | 10. Bouch Shelter Sectional | 11. York Sectional | 12. Kivik Sectional | 13. Rockport Sectional Sofa | 14. Pavo Slipcovered Sectional | 15. Graham Sectional | 16. Belgian Classic Slope Arm Sectional
As you are shopping for stain resistant fabrics ‘microfiber’ will pop up over and over. Some of this is questionable and looks as if they are just renaming ultra-suede because its reputation has grown and its popularity has diminished. But some of it is seriously great and super stain-resistant. You’ll want to see this fabric in person before you order just to make sure, but these looked like great options to us.
1. Shae Sectional | 2. Cooper 3 Seater Sofa | 3. Kerry Down Blend Sectional | 4. Egan Sofa | 5. Shelter Sectional | 6. Decker Sectional | 7. Roller Corner Sectional | 8. Pollack Sectional | 9. Marco Sectional | 10. Uno 2 piece Sectional | 11. Draper Sectional | 12. Cade Sectional | 13. District Sectional | 14. Topanga Sectional
Hopefully one of these can help you find security and peace while your kids are smashing bananas into the crevices of your sofa 🙂
Happy Tuesday, folks. Cheers to a shorter week!!!
