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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Leather can be stained with paints and inks, whereas fabric coverings can be cleaned much easier than genuine leather. Leave the leather until the kids have grown up. If you have no children, then you can purchase sets comprising stylish glass tables along with a pair of leather-covered hardwood sofas. Many people like a smoked or even black glass central table with a pair of oak or glass side tables.
