When you have a sofa that dates back over a century, and you have invested good money in it, reupholstering it makes sense. This is not something that can be replaced by a brand new sofa. In this case, by reupholstering, you are actually restoring an antique. However, if this is an investment, this should not be attempted on your own. Get a qualified professional to do it, and it is going to be costly.
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.
Mirrors are important decorative tools.They reflect light, they open up spaces, and they just make rooms look better in general. Above a sofa can be a great place to hang a large mirror, but keep in mind that whenever possible mirrors should be hung across from windows or something else that‘s visually appealing.
