Good Questions: Is This Sofa Too Big and Deadly?

Hello AT,

We recently bought a sofa at Room and Board (it was on sale so we purchased it without really measuring the space in our room or thinking it through!). I like the shape but I think it looks really dead and big in our living room. Also, the couch we had there was much smaller and so the proportions with the other furniture (coffee table, mirror behind sofa etc) are now thrown off. I am not sure what to do!...

I know the mirror above the couch has to go, as does the lamp beside it. I am thinking of painting the wall behind the sofa (a bright paint to liven up the sofa) and then hanging two large mirrors (side by side) above and a white pendant lamp in the corner? I am not convinced and feel defeated!

I would love your input! Thanks! Laura
