Warm weather shedding is no joke. Neither are all the extra kid messes that come with more time at home and outdoors during the summer. Choose a performance sofa that stands up.

We love our long-haired pets and our adventurous kids; we love puppy couch cuddles and eating popcorn in front of the tv; and we love not having to worry about dirty paws and messy hands. The best way to keep couch time fun and guard against pesky stains is to choose a performance sofa that is durable enough to withstand wear from frequent hair removal (vacuuming, lint rolling, etc.) and stain-resistant enough for spills to roll right off. Here are five of our favorite performance fabric couches to withstand pets and kids all year long! 

5 Couches That Stand Up to Kids and Pets 

#1 The Sink Down Sectional by Floyd Home

Unbelievably comfortable and incredibly deep, The Sink Down Sectional was designed to make you feel like you’re lying on a cloud. This performance sofa combination of premium memory foam and blown fiber cushions create the perfect place to unwind, relax, and put your feet up. Plus, when you choose the Crypton performance fabric featuring recycled cotton as your upholstery option, you can rest assured that it will permanently protect against pet and kid play for life. 

#2 The Ashby Sofa by Arhaus

Craftsman-built by upholstery artisans, the modern Ashby sofa is a classic, midcentury-inspired silhouette. Ashby’s inset feet make each piece appear to float above your floor, and its deep seating is hand-fitted in chic, menswear-inspired performance fabrics—which are incredibly durable and virtually unstainable. We love how this frame style maintains strong lines while offering rounded corners perfect for little ones learning how to walk. This Crypton-powered performance sofa makes this timeless two-seater oh-so easy to clean. 

#3 The Emmy Sectional by Design Within Reach

The Emmy Sofa is tailored but relaxed, with a curved frame that creates cozy corners in which to curl up. Baffled back cushions with a feather-silk fill add just the right amount of support, and the super tight weave of the fabric makes it stand up better than most against kitty claws. “The Emmy speaks to multiple generations,” says designer Stephanie Beamer. “Youthful yet mature, it resonates with a sense of modernism and tradition. It’s a place to feel at home.” We love the way this sofa epitomizes our carefree luxury ethos. Sophisticated and stain-resistant – what a great combo for a performance sofa.

#4 The Magda Settee by McGee & Co

A stately and elevated addition to any living area, the CB2 Magda Settee makes a modern statement in a traditionally inspired form. With a white oak frame, plush seating, performance fabric, subtle tufting, and softly curved corners make this the perfect piece for kid and pet snuggles or just leaning back to enjoy a good book. This piece is masterfully crafted, bringing comfort and luxury to every home.

#5 The Faible 6-Piece U-Shaped White Performance Fabric Sectional Sofa by CB2

This deep, generously proportioned snow-white sectional sofa is a sophisticated high performer. The oversized profile is perfect for lounging with family and friends without sacrificing style, and the spill-resistance Crypton performance fabric ensures you can do so without worry. Our fabric withstands spills and other stressors, yet retains the lushness of a high-end textile, making it perfect for today’s luxury consumer who values being able to live a carefree life in a beautiful home. And this is another one featuring all soft edges in a fully-upholstered frame to protect from bumps and bruises. This CB2-exclusive is totally customizable to suit your individual space.
