Familyroom faux sisal and wearable fabric?

I am redoing my family room. I am looking for a couple of things and unsure of my choices.I would l like to recover or buy a new  sofa and chair  in a light neutral tone that I can change easily with pillows choices. I need to be practical as this is the room where everyone hangs  out and lounges. The fabric must be durable, and not show too much dirt but I still want a light tone. I would go with off white but that will be nixed for sure by my husband who should have a say. Do I buy a matching chair and sofa?Secondly I love the look sisal and jute rugs but do not like the feel or how they will clean. This room is on a slab, 15 x 16 and gets a ton of traffic some of which is from the outside. Again it must be easily cleanable. Is there a good wall to wall choice that looks like sisal or jute, is softer and doesn't look meant for a rec room. I can see layering another rug on top to change colors and looks down the road.
