Before my daughter was born (7.5 years) ago we bought a sofa for the occasion. My friend w 2 kids recommended something I would throw in the garbage in 4-5 years and a color that went with puke.
It has been replaced.
We also rescued 2 kittens 2 years ago. The Womb chair w Cato did get a little early patina.
Kids and pets are a fast track to tears or becoming a Wabi Sabi Master.
