Sofas and chairs are definitely the stock components of a living room. Sofas specifically 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 types of functionality involves an added 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 obtain a recliner if you never use it. Not all people like a footrest or perhaps to recline back when sitting, so the type of living room furniture you want to purchase should be determined first by your own specific needs.
