How high should my framed picture be above the sofa?
How many inches above the 81" sofa should the 50" wide X 40" high picture be that arrived today? The room has a cathedral ceiling. The picture would have looked I feel best around 54" wide but to go up another size added to the cost and I got a good deal on the size I used (print was 40" X 30"). The sofa is only 34" high since I am so short so I chose the leather beige-light taupe Natuzzi sofa that I could touch the floor when sitting on it.
The 2.5" wide bronze frame with the inner beaded lip that arrived today with the Linen Off-White outer mat and the autumn brown inner mat and the museum quality acrylic instead of glass since Art.com would not ship a picture that size with glass really looks nice in the family room/living room area. It is very pretty but the museum quality glass in my home office that is on the other picture that Art.com framed for me has much greater clarity and is nicer. Hence, whenever I am able to use Museum quality glass in areas with a lot of glare I am finding I prefer it over the museum quality acrylic I have just learned. I wish the inner mat would be bronze but they did not have that choice so I chose an autumn brown. The local store had that choice but their frame was 2" bronze with the inner lip and I liked the frames design and price better at art.com. But I love the overall look and can't wait to hang up the picture and then share with all of you how it looks.
