How To Arrange Large Prints Over Couch?

Good Questions

Q: We have FINALLY gotten around to buying artwork for our living room and now we have a dilemma. We have three rather large prints, about 20 x 28 each. We want to hang all three in a series above our couch. Right now we are deciding between two options:

Pin it button big
Pin it button big
1) GO BIG. Buy three frames that are 28 x 40 and mount the prints with a mat. This will take up a lot of our wall and the prints would be centered between the columns (as opposed to being centered above the couch).

2) Go not so big. We'd buy three frames that would be about 20 x 28 and would fit the prints with no mat. In this case I'm not sure if we'd center above the couch or between the columns.

For reference, our couch is about 73 inches. The space between the columns is 123 inches and we have a 10 foot ceiling.

I would love the AT community's input on what we should do! Thanks!
