Fabrics that work with cats: do they exist?

We have cats and, unfortunately, love them very much. We keep their nails clipped and have lots of scratching posts, but they still sink their little claws into everything. Are there fabrics, either for rugs or couches, that you've found work better with cat claws? I was told that things like microsuede provide less purchase for their little pointy claws -- is this true? What fabrics should we avoid?

Tools For the Spatially Challenged: Couch-Movers Edition

Wizards of Hive, Before I buy that 90" couch from a friend, how can I make sure I'll be able to get it up my L-shaped stairs? Sure, there are a lot of variables. But is there a tool or methodology for figuring this out ahead of time (presuming I know the depth and height of the couch too)? I don't think I have the cardboard to build a mockup. This couch is 50 miles away and can't be returned. Thanks!

Help Me Repair My Awesome Couch

One of the rubber-band cushion supports broke on my Mid Century Modern couch. I would ideally replace all of the bands, since they are all showing signs of their 50-60 years of use. I was hoping someone would have some magical source for replacement parts.

How weird is it for an office to lack a desk?

I would like to take the big, corner desk out of my office and instead have a couch, along with a laptop table that I can use as needed. Or maybe a small stand-up desk off to the side. I am wondering what the outside perception might be, as well as any potential problems I may not have considered. [more inside]
