Our cat is absolutely demolishing our furniture

Our cat is absolutely demolishing our furniture

My family & I adopted a stray cat from the streets! He was unquestionably aggressive running into our dwelling & begging for food. He unquestionably did not give us the option not to adopt him. Now all of us feed, love & appreciate the cat. Since we never knew much about cats, all of us have had a few issues along the way. The most interesting thing is that cats shred everything they see. The cat enjoys taking his claws against the edge of the couch & tearing it up. I have tried introducing scratching posts & he still prefers messing with the couch. Then my fiance attached cardboard to the side of the couch to protect it, and our cat enjoyed it. The complication is that our couch now looks unquestionably gross & trashy. I have been looking into furniture that is durable that either can withstand claws or repel a cat from scratching it entirely… Basic furniture stores don’t unquestionably have what I am trying to find. Right now I am talking with an interior design & custom furniture business for some needed help. I have been talking about upholstery for the couch that is durable or getting a custom couch that is angled in a way so the cat won’t scratch it. I am a little concerned I will spend our savings for either new fabric or a brand new couch & still our kitty will claw at it regardless. I might be doomed to have cardboard or furniture blocking the edge of the couch. Perhaps if I have many couches he will only shred one couch.
