Sofa painting is a pejorative term for paintings that match a color scheme or match a sofa.
However, a 2002 exhibition Sofa painting
of sofa art, entitled A Painting for Over the Sofa (that’s not necessarily a painting), showed that art painting
made to go over the sofa could also communicate highly Sofa painting charged artistic messages. The exhibition, organized by the Bernice Steinbaum Gallery in Miami, Florida, debuted at the Knoxville Museum of Art, Knoxville, Tennessee.
