Answer : I would recommend a microfiber fabric couch. They are very low maintenance, they have durable upholstery fabrics, and the quality is very good for a reasonable price.
I took into consideration the furniture in my living room (microfiber), my budget (reasonable), and the durability of my furniture fabric (durable). Microsuede seems to be more like slippery suede and not what you're looking for if you had no slipcovers on your couch. Fabric sofas are typically an easy to scratch material with cheaper upholstery fibers that will eventually stain or tear at repeated use from items like children's toys or human nails scraping against them when sitting down.
