So, we have been an 'ethical vegetarian' home for about 8 years or so, and have always done cloth furniture. Now we are really in need of something more stainproof and dh wants leather <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/disappointed.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="disappointed"><br>
Yesterday I was at a friends home who had a new leather sectional and I must admit it was dreamy to sit on ( cool, smooth, etc) but she cringed FOR me at the 'dead cow' aspect.<br>
So anyone have any ideas on nice non-leather furniture that is not too cheap (has to last!)

After going back and doing more than "skimming" the previously posted article, I realized the date is way passed! I don't know why this hit my mail this morning because "Jan '03" is stated there. Sorry for any panic-like attacks I may have caused.<br>

Yeah, this it probably why I've lived with the big leather sectional that my dh bought before we were married - that & it cost $5,000. We can't afford to toss it yet! It is durable, but when we do eventually replace it, I would like something that isn't dead animal skin. I'll watch closely for any suggestions!

I hear that (one of my favorite designers) Todd Oldham is now making faux-skin furniture for one of the big fancy chains, but I haven't tracked it down yet. It is sure to be pricey.

Hi I was wondering if there were any alternatives to replace chicken nuggets that arent soy? My ds has a limited diet (read my last post on the other veggie thread) but loves chicken nuggets. What about hamburgers? anyone have any good veggie burger recipies?

mamcarey - I don't know about nuggets that are totally non-soy, but I do have a mushroom based one that has a little tofu in it if you are interested. Also have a great black bean burger recipie that my dd just gobbled up. Let me know if you are interested.

i've heard good things about the microfiber stuff being very cleanable. we have dh's 30 year old leather sofa from his family. it actually looked great until our stupid cat malled the arms and back. we've been ovo lacto vegs for 12 years (16 for dh), though, so having a leather sofa does seem a bit odd, but it doesn't hold the dog/cat/baby milk smells like fabric so it does work well. dh has said that leather is a by-product of the meat-eating industry and is, therefore, not as bad. i don't know though... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch">

Unfortunately, leather has it's own industry.

Hi all. I'm dealing with the dreaded father's day bbq in a few weeks and was wondering if anyone had any ideas about a potluck type vegan dish to bring. I'll be going late because of work, but thought I could bring something.....I hate going to my dad's, after all these years my step-mom still thinks it's a phase.......<br>
I was wondering where you all lived and how supportive your community is with your life choices, alright, your not all of them, just your ethical eating choices <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I live in Alameda, CA which is the city next to Oakland and across the bay from San Francisco. Obviously we've got tons of veg restaurants (at least veg options at normal restuarants). The markets are great, but I still have trouble finding something vegan at restaurants. I always have to ask them to hold the cheese. I find I don't really want to eat out too much anymore, esp. when there will be one or two things I can eat! How bout you all?
