Make sure you purchase solid furniture that isn't going to break or become unstable through hard use, and the fabrics you choose are sensible and easily cleaned - also easily repaired if you have young children or pets. Do not purchase cheap just because you can buy more - it's better to have one well-made high quality sofa than two made of matchwood and plastic.
That is because it is false economy to purchase too cheaply. Well made solid wood furniture will last longer and need fewer repairs, this being particularly true of the upholstered furniture that can comprise a significant proportion of living room furniture sets. Examples of these are sofas, armchairs and recliners.
A lot depends on the size of your living room. If you are short of space then a sectional sofa is likely better, because you can then use a corner of the room to connect two longer pieces of sofa by means of a wedge. That is making the best use of the space available to you, and avoids cluttering up a small room with large pieces of furniture in the middle of the floor.
Also, buy the best quality you can with the budget you are working to. This is where living room furniture sets will pay, because sets are often more economical than purchasing the items individually. You can purchase living room furniture sets comprising two sofas and a connecting corner piece, or a sofa and two lounge or arm chairs. If you have children, a sofa in a hard wearing fabric might be better initially than leather.
Look around the different ranges offered by some of the better-known manufacturers, such as Stickley Furniture, Sherrill Furniture, Southwood and American Craftsman. If you have the money, check out The Custom Shoppe for what they can do for you with your budget. They can custom-design furniture to meet your needs, though the prices are naturally higher than the standard ranges.
Compare the prices offered by the various furniture manufacturers, and then come to a decision. Make sure that what you purchase is suitable for the design and size of your room. A common error is to buy pieces that are too large and bulky for your living room - that's a waste of money and will not do your room justice. You don't want to pack your room full of furniture, just with what you need.
