Maps are a fantastic way to add a sense of history to a room. They’re also great for paying homage to the places you've been or places you want to go. When it comes to decorating with maps you have a ton of options - colorful, black and white, sepia toned, new, vintage, city, country, transit, nautical - the list goes on.
Hanging sculptures made up of interesting materials and shapes can be ideal for creating unique, one-of-a-kind looks. The term sculpture is very broad, but basically, it means any item that isn‘t a traditional piece of art (i.e. painting or photograph). It could be an interesting architectural piece such as a bracket, a sculptural wall sconce, faux antlers, or anything else you find that speaks to you. The key here is to look for pieces that don‘t have a lot of depth so they won’t infringe on the space out over the sofa.
Just make sure that it has a sturdy frame and good lines if it is to be considered worth reupholstering. If it is a very good quality sofa, and the cost of reupholstering it comes out less than getting a sofa of comparable value, by all means, go for it. You may want to get quotes from two or three different re-upholsterers for all fabric and parts, and then weigh it against what you would pay for a new sofa of the same quality.
