Animal Friendly Fabrics

So many of our customers have pets, and more often than not, those pets are extensions of the family; they are on the sofas with us and use our favorites chairs more than we do! Investing in fabric upholstery that holds up to the hair, dirt, occasional stick or fur ball is easier to achieve than many customers think!   It is all in the fabric content, clean –ability and weave of the fabric that determines how it will hold up to our 4 legged friends. Here are the keys: find a fabric with different thread colors or pattern through it, which will give the fabric some variation in color and make pet hair not show up easily. Chose a fabric with not too loose of a weave or heavy tweedy texture that little claws and hair can get stuck in. Fabric that is water cleanable along with a great Guardian Protection cleaning kit for any unexpected wet messes can help make fabric upholstery deep cleaning much easier. Last but not least, rotate your cushions and vacuum them, both of which will add an incredible amount of life to your new fabric upholstery.

Today's Home


When Sigmund and Audrey Lenchner, both Taylor Allderdice graduates, founded Today’s Home, they had a vision to enrich the lives of area families by bringing true quality home furnishings to Western Pennsylvania. Over the decades, Today’s Home has emerged as a true “family business” success story. Through the years, our dedicated employees have managed to grow the company in an age dominated by big box retailing and mega chains.

Now Today’s Home, with its roots firmly planted in the luxury residential furnishings market, has additional operating companies in Designer Furniture Outlet Stores and TH TRADE Commercial. DFO has become the luxury closeout treasure-hunter’s favorite haunt. Our newest addition, TH TRADE, provides ASID level design to our commercial contract customers. We invite you to contact a Today’s Home designer to visit our showroom and see the world of possibilities awaiting you at Today’s Home.
