According to the World Wrestling Federation, folding chairs perform much better than recliners. If you can find the ballistic tip folding chair (BTFC) it will have much better accuracy. In a pinch you could use the basic metal kitchen chair, but the wooden chairs will have sharply limited range. Sofas should never be thrown, and may penetrate walls into adjacent homes.

I find Ikea furniture best for home defense because it won't penetrate exterior walls.

Ikeas are interesting, but the 1968 Furniture Control Act, dealing with cheap imports, and the Saturday Night Snoozer has made finding those a bit of a challenge.

And I think Illinois and New Jersey may have outlawed them.

Damm liberals!

How can I identify, and where can I get, a pre-ban ottoman?

Ottomans are know known as Ottopersons.

With the right rifle and ammo, I can get sub 1 inch groups at 100 yards. At 300 I could hit an oil drum. Yes, will drive a bullet 1 to 1.5 miles- but with the accuracy of a thrown chair.
Didnt know that. The gun I was useing was a 22mag. That and the micro grv barrel seem to handle a 100 yards without much of a problem.

Here is a table displaying various .22 round velocities at the muzzle, 50, & 100 yards, out of a Ruger 10/22 (I’m presuming).

http://www.ruger1022.com/docs/22lrballistics.htm

At 60 degrees F, the speed of sound is 1117.469 fps. The high velocity and magnums seem to be the only rounds still supersonic at 100 yards.
Sorry, no chairs on the chart.
