The size of the sofa has to be chosen in conformity with the size of the room. In other words, if you have a tiny living room you can’t get a huge sofa because it will completely take over the space. If the room is large, then a small sofa will simply look ridiculous. If you want the room to feel larger, get a sofa with open space underneath.
There are several different sofa shapes to choose from. Rectangular sofas are the most popular but L-shape sofas are also popular. Depending on how big you want the sofa to be and how you want it to be oriented, perhaps it could form a semi circle or even a circle around the coffee table.
A nice idea for homes that have nice views is to try to bring some of the nature inside by using colors that match the ones visible through the windows. For example, here we have a family room decorated with shades of green and blue, colors which also define the lovely courtyard. The sofa best translated the color of the grass.
Anytime you're arranging furniture you have to think about balance. When too many visually heavy things are on one side of the room the entire space looks unbalanced. Since sofas tend to be large in scale they take up quite a bit of visual space, and they require something of equal weight across from them to balance out the room. This is why you often see two chairs placed directly across from a sofa. Together the chairs balance out the weight of the sofa.
