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 kinds of functionality involves an added cost, so you ought to choose wisely. For example, there is little need for a sleeper if you have a few extra bedrooms for guests, and why get a recliner if you never use it. Not all people like a footrest or to recline back when sitting, so any type of living room furniture you choose to purchase should be determined first by your own specific needs.
