How long a sofa will last and retain its shape depends largely on the frame, and a high-quality sofa always has a strong, sturdy one: The best frame is made out of kiln-dried hardwood. The process of kiln drying removes all moisture from the wood, enabling it to retain its shape and stability over a long period of time. A frame made of green wood can shrink or crack as it dries. Softwood can bend and break easily, while knotted wood is prone to cracks.

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.
