Good Questions: Figuring Out Scale & Proportion?

Good Questions: Figuring Out Scale & Proportion?

Good morning! I'm moving into this bright (but tiny!) apartment within a few weeks, and I trying to find a sofa to fit the space. I don't have the measurements of the room yet (will hopefully break in with a tape measure this weekend), but I was wondering how to go about figuring out scale and proportion. I'm worried that a large sofa will overwhelm such a small apartment. How much space should you leave between the wall and the sofa on each and and behind? Thanks for your help! Megan
