How long would it take a family with 1 baby and no pets to damage a vinyl couch or should I just get a leather sofa?

Buy a couch made from some type of a fabric and get one from a thrift shop.

Don't be foolish and spend a lot of money on something new.

If you have a couch you can get it re covered with a good grade of leather or vinyl, it will last a life time, I think vinyl will last longer, good luck.

Leather will hold up better with your family. Our 2 year old grandson and a large dog live with us while our daughter is deployed and we have all leather in our family room. Vinyl becomes brittle after time.

When I was a kid, many, many years ago, my folks had a vinyl covered rocking chair, this was a large chair, and there were 4 kids in the family, ranging in age from baby to 10 years when they purchased the chair and it lasted for many years. I also know they didn't pay a lot for it, because we were real low income.

I had a leather couch for only three years. It did have vinyl everywhere your skin did not touch. Well the leather stayed in perfect condition but the vinyl ended up cracking and spliting. I say go for all leather and it will last a long time.

Hello, W

Well leather is more costly than vinyl but the leather will last much longer.

If I were you, I'd do vinyl.

I think leather is too much upkeep while raising children.
