Any feedback on the velvet fabrics from these retailers?

I want to reupholster my 8 year old Roche Bobois loveseat in an olive green velvet or velvet-like fabric.

I am considering the following samples:

Pottery Barn Vintage Velvet (100% poly)

Ballard Designs Signature Velvet (82% poly/18% cotton)

Room & Board Vance Velvet (90% cotton/10% poly)

Room & Board Banks Velvet (82% poly/18% cotton)

I am looking for something that will not pill, have minimal stretching and hopefully be stain resistant or at least cleanable by a professional.

I like the Vintage Velvet best, so I have been reading old threads on PB fabrics on Houzz and they have left me so confused! It seems like half the feedback is positive and the other 50% is terrible. FWIW, it's just my husband and me in our house, no kids and no pets. But the sofa would be used pretty much every day.

I'm willing to consider other brands of fabric and I would pay up to $100/yd. I just need someone who is really knowledgeable about the fabrics to guide me to the best choice and none of the fabric places I've been to did that.

Would love your input. Here are some photos!

Current sofa - the fabric stretched out far more than I expected.
