Sofas and chairs would be the stock components of a living room. Sofas particularly come in many different varieties, ranging from double to four-seaters with no particular functionality to sofas with reclining features, slides and even sofa beds that are useful for unexpected overnight guests. If you elect to include them, each of these sorts of functionality involves another cost, so you should select wisely. For example, there is little need for a sleeper if you have a few extra bedrooms for guests, and why invest in a recliner if you never use it. Not all people like a footrest or to recline back when sitting, so the kind of living room furniture you decide to purchase should be determined first by your own specific needs.
