A happy vegan home

My top tips

A cruelty-free home is very achievable. Aside from the cruelty, leather is so out-moded and doesn’t perform well. I haven’t used it for years. Faux leathers and suedes are far better looking and better performing, better for cleaning and are not full of bleach, solvents and tanning chemicals that you wouldn’t want near your skin.

It’s really easy to avoid cruel and dust harbouring wool too. Every year PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) have a Homeware Awards and there’s always a sofa category. Anthropologie’s UK-made ‘Angelina’ sofa uses hard wearing and stain resistant alternative ‘performance wool’ and won this year’s award for Best Sofa.

Think about who will use the sofa and how it will be used – is it for watching TV or for conversation? It affects the shape, squishiness and seat height. If you’re buying new, buy for the long term if you can afford to splash out. This is worth investing in and getting right. Really make sure it’s the right fit in the space by marking out the area with tape (tip: make sure it can be delivered and will fit through the doorways too!)
