recliners or ottomans??
I'm brand new here and to the world of online forums! I'm seeking advice on a furniture purchase for living room. My husband and I have been through so many different peices of hand-me-down, and used furniture sets that have left us desiring the "IT" furniture set that is comfortable, high quality and sticks around for a while. The closest we've come to having a nicer set of furniture was a set from Ashley's which we quickly discovered was not very comfortable or high quality :(. We aren't fancy and only wish to have something comfortable/functional but still "nice" looking. We're looking for something that fits our whole family (us and 2 young kids).
We're pretty certain that we want to go with leather, but my dilemma is that I cannot figure out whether to go with a sectional/modular and ottoman combo, or a set with a sofa, love seat, and rocking chair that all recline. I know I've always loved having rocker/recliners growing up, but I also am attracted to the cushy comfortable invitation of a nice sectional, plus we are working with a medium-sized room that probably won't fit too many peices to scale.
Would anyone be willing to offer opinions or experiences on reclining furniture versus ottomans?? I know this is lengthy, but thank you to those willing to read and offer advice!
Thank you so much!
