Sofas and chairs are definitely the stock components of a living room. Sofas especially 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. Every one of these forms of functionality involves an extra cost, so you should choose wisely in the event you elect to include them. For example, there is little need for a sleeper if you have a few extra bedrooms for guests, and why purchase a recliner if you never use it. Not all people like a footrest or even to recline back when sitting, so the kind of living room furniture you want to purchase should be determined first by your own specific needs.
