Art to Hang Over A Large Sofa

Get ready for a barrage of indecisiveness. Again! Today’s subject: art.

One of the major things I want to update in our living room for the #1Room30Days challenge this month is to get some art hung above the sofa to replace the set of party tassels that have been up there for six months.

As I have mentioned twenty-seven times, I am planning to replace the sofa with a beautiful navy velvet Chesterfield; a little different from the one in the mock ups below, but similar. I’m thinking probably one big piece of art, maybe two. Here are a few of the options I’m considering so far, and some I’m just dreaming about, priced low to high…

Embroidered Portrait // Cayce Zavaglia
Size not accurate & prints not available

Do you have a favorite? I probably go for one of the amazing cartographic portraits by Ed Fairburn if I could, but neither are available in the size I’d want, and even if they were, they’d be over my budget. You have to check out Cayce Zavaglia’s work too if you haven’t seen it – huge, amazingly intricate embroideries – they’re just awesome.

I have found one more option that’s not even up there…I’m a bit over excited about it coz I I think it might be a winner…I’ll keep you posted if/when it pans out!
