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). If you‘re hanging a group of pieces the same rule generally applies. Other than that the rules are pretty loose, so be creative and choose something that speaks to you and makes you smile.

This style can be found both on traditional and modern sofas or sofas with wood frames. It is generally conveys a formal look. "Under the hood" of your sofa are the various parts that make up its structure. These are largely responsible for the longevity of a sofa.

Its ideal for large rooms or large families that need seating for more people. Some styles have reclining sections. Sectional sofas are generally large pieces of furniture so be sure you measure not only the room, but the entranceways into the room. It would be a shame to purchase a piece and not be able to get it through the door!

Slipcovers aren’t as expensive as they used to be (although they’re still not cheap) and they’re available in a huge variety of fabrics and colors. You can have them custom made if you want the perfect fit, or you can buy something in a standard size for a looser fit. And if you have an IKEA sofa you’re in luck – there are a few companies who make slipcovers specifically for IKEA furniture.

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.

Contemporary By Lovise Engel. f you’ve got a plain Jane sofa and you want it to look more formal a surefire way to do it is to add some nailhead trim. Simply determine the lines of the sofa you want to accent and then nail in the tacks (try to place them at even intervals of roughly ½ inch). Just be sure to choose a solid part of the frame so you’ve got a solid foundation to nail the trim into. And it should go without saying that you cannot do this on a slipcovered piece – only on one that’s upholstered.

The arms hold up fine, even with the wear, tear, and weight of rambunctious family members, friends, and pets. A year later, they still look brand new. The seat cushions are made of memory foam which will mold itself to the shape of your body for extra comfort and support. After a year of use, the Kivik sofas have proved to be as comfortable as they seemed in the IKEA showroom. The fabric is easy to remove and machine washable. The fabric that we chose was a nubby weave, which has probably helped the sofa´ s staying power because the fabric still looks new.
