How can I make my sofa look bigger?

I have the 74" Eddy sofa from West Elm in pearl gray. The scale looks too small in my living room. How can I make it appear larger? Would size of accessories, such as artwork, make a difference?

I am going to the condo next week and plan to implement many of these suggestions. In searching for end tables, can anyone suggest some? The couch arm is 23.5"high, the depth is 20" for the seat but 34.5" for the entire sofa, and the sofa back is 33" high and the sofa length is 74". I want to get the scale right this time. The lamp, plant and ottoman are going bye bye.
