The empty space above a sofa is a prime spot in the house for a great piece of art. In fact, it‘s comparable only to space above a mantle. That being said, what kind of art should go there? Should it be a painting? A photograph? While most people stick with the traditional solution of hanging a single painting or photograph above a sofa, there are plenty more options to choose from.
Don‘t hang a large mirror over a sofa simply because it’s an empty space and you happen to have one. Make sure it works with everything else in the room. That said, you can certainly hang a series of small mirrors together over a sofa to create a gallery feel. Like with any photo wall, treat them as one unit when deciding on placement and carefully consider size, shape, and the finish of the frames.
When testing for fabric, you should also check to see if it wrinkles easily or stretches. If it wrinkles easily, it will be difficult to maintain its looks for a long time. Sagging fabric will make it look dilapidated very quickly. Call it a sleeper sofa, or sofa bed, this is one of the most functional pieces of furniture you can own. Having a sleeper in your living room rather than a sofa might be one way to overcome space limitations, if you have them. It lets you turn any room into a guest room, or even a bed room for yourself if you live in a studio apartment.
