When hanging anything above a sofa, keep in mind that the number one mistake people make is to hang something that´s too small. The piece, whatever it may be, should generally be about two-thirds the width of the sofa (unless you´re opting for something purposely over-scale).

The use of a lighter rug under the front of your sofa can separate the dark colors and make the sofa color pop. A light wood or metal coffee table could also help to define the sofa from the floor.

Select deep or shallow seats depending on your height. A taller person will need deeper seats. The arms should not jiggle or move, and if upholstered, they should be well padded.

For a modern, clean look, try placing pillows in contrasting shapes right beside each other on one side of the sofa. The consistency in color ensures continuity.
