JF Gallery Presents “Above the Couch”, a Fresh Look at Exhibiting Artwork

“What type of art is the best to display above the couch?  Size, color, and genre come into play. Is one piece of art just right, too small, or is the work of art strong enough to carry the wall and the couch? Sometimes one large single piece is enough, at other times, it’s a grouping of art that gives the wall impact. What are your intentions? Demure or Bold?”  These are all of the decisions Joseph Pubillones plus nine well-known designers took into consideration as they show off their design process with pairings of sofas, loveseats and chairs along with their selection of art at “Above the Couch”. This fresh exhibit has been curated by Designer and Design Columnist, Joseph Pubillones and appears at JF Gallery in West Palm Beach.  The Rickie Report gives you the details and a sneak peak.
