How to center your art: with your furniture or the wall?

How to correctly center artwork on the wall is one of the most popular questions we get asked:

Q: I have a piece of furniture that is not located in the center of the wall. If I want to hang a piece of art above it, should the art be centered on the furniture or on the wall?

Aligning artwork with furniture or the wall

When hanging your pictures, always hang them in relation to the furniture sitting below. With your couch off-centered on the wall, focus on hanging your painting centered above the couch to create a great focal point for your living room. As you see in the bottom image, if you were to hang your piece centered with the wall, the entire furniture arrangement would look out of balance.
