If anything it would piss me off if my partner deliberately chose to sleep on the couch in response to an argument. And in the past he hasn't taken it too well when I scout off to the next room to cool off after an argument.
@Keke24 it is all about "personal space." It may be wise for the two of you to discuss how you argue and how allowing for some personal space to cool off can actually be helpful.

Your husband may be upset if he feels you are giving up and running away from arguments. So if you need space to cool off, acknowledge the problem and request some space to just think through things on your own for a while as a way to call a "truce" with one another and that you will come back to finish the argument once you have gathered you feelings and thoughts a little better.

Otherwise things can get too emotional.
