Sofas and chairs are the stock components of an income 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. If you elect to include them, each of these forms of functionality involves an additional cost, so you should select wisely. If you have a couple of extra bedrooms for guests, and why purchase a recliner if you never use it, for example, there is little need for a sleeper. Not all people like a footrest or even recline back when sitting, so the sort of living room furniture you decide to purchase should be determined first by your own specific needs.
