Currently, architects and interior designers have increasingly focused on integrated environments, especially when the house or apartment is small and has smaller rooms. For this reason, the organization of furniture has become more creative so that spaces are used in a better way. The sofa, for example, is no longer necessarily leaning against the wall, and can even be used as a key piece to divide rooms and delimit spaces within the house. This division made by the sofa can help to create elegant and functional spaces, which can be used in different ways and with many beautiful and innovative decoration options.

When using the sofa to separate the living room from the dining room, for example, you can use sideboards and benches to hide the back of the upholstery and decorate them with flower vases, sculptures, candles and whatever else you want. Another interesting and very charming option is to create a space to organize the books, making a special corner for reading.

So, are you thinking of decorating the space behind your sofa and are wondering what to do? Check out 75 photos of different environments with decoration behind the sofa with tips and suggestions to inspire you below:
