What Can I Do to the Space Around and Above This Sofa

last month

We have a very strangely shaped living room, and after trying many configurations for the time being and without buying very specific furniture I’ve decided that this is the best place for the sofa. But it has these two weird windows above it, preventing me from hanging anything above it. I don’t want long drapes because I won’t like how it will look when they’re closed behind the sofa. But as it is the sofa is so low to the ground and there is so much space around it that it looks blah. I currently draped some fabric over tension rods on the windows for privacy but that is only temporary. Any suggestions about whether I could actually hang something above the sofa without it looking weird? Maybe add bookshelves on either side, for height? Any help is appreciated. TYVM
