A sofa is perfect for those times when you want to lie down but not go back to bed.

@mjkrobinson & @wibbus - it's true that some people just wouldn't be happy without a sofa. Some homes have both, a formal living room, and then a more casual family room. In that type of layout, it's easier to forego the sofa in a formal living room where people are visiting and conversing, and not so much lounging. Nice to know there are options. It's always about what works best for the individuals living there.
