Is this sofa compatible with this cat?

I want to buy a sofa. I really like the ones in that soft suede-like microfiber, e.g., this
(you can click on the fabric swatch to see the texture up close). However, I'm worried that this fabric may be incompatible with my cat. He does not scratch furniture per se, but he does run, climb, and loll all over it, and I'm sure this involves his claws going into it pretty frequently. Is this fabric going to show puncture wounds in the way that leather would? Will it be a better idea for me to get an upholstery in a woven texture, e.g., this
, where the claws can just slide in and out?
Has anyone got this combination of furniture and animal? Please report.
