correct height: The 'Art' of Hanging Art - 01/15/11 09:44 PM
4.   OTHERA couple of more general rules....if hung above a piece of furniture, such as a sofa, the width of the piece should never be wider than the piece of furniture.  Some will say the art  should not exceed 75% of the width of the furniture below it.  Also, when hung above a sofa or similar, the art should take up 2/3 of the wall space between the furniture and the ceiling.  These are just a few pointers on hanging art.  Does anybody else have any more to add?
