Hung up on hanging artwork?
- How high should I hang the artwork, especially in relation to the sofa?
- What if there is nothing to anchor the piece, and the art would go better in a long hallway? (Or, can’t I just tap a nail in someplace and call it a day?!)
The general rule of thumb is that the center of the piece should be about 60” off the ground.Notice we said “center” of the piece, i.e., not the top of the frame! Should that 60" rule change depending on where the artwork will be hanging in the room? So glad you asked, because the answer is yes. But, not much!
When hanging artwork over a sofa, you’ll want it to be centered above the sofa and between 6-12” above the back.Santa Fe Sofa beneath End of Summer print. Additional tip: it’s good to have someone sitting on the other side of the room to help guide the exact placement. What if you have multiple pieces of the same collection of art?

Another fun way to display your artwork is simply to lean it against the wall. This is a deliberate, but simply casual look that also allows you to layer the piece with multiple frames or accessories.
