I don't know that there is a best material.  Actually leather would be the best since you can wipe spills off of it.  The rest of them will stain.  you can try treating the couch with Scotch Guard when you first get it.  That should help a lot, but nothing will completely repel all stains.  Why can't you buy used?

A tightly woven  fabric will help with snags and spills. Mixed colors, as opposed to a solid, hides marks.
