The good news is that I didn't bring much furniture and will buy everything after having planned the room layout. The only pieces I wanted to keep are a big wooden dining table with leather chairs and an old Chinese chest that will be a coffee table. So there aren't many constraints from that end.
What I definitely would like to have is one dining area at least containing the dining table and chairs, and a living room at least containing a small sofa, an additional (arm)chair, the Chinese chest as a coffee table and a 55'' flatscreen (plus additional appliances like HTPC ,etc.)
1) living room area with sofa etc. in that alcove (TV would go to the northern wall to the right of the windows) and dining room with table and chairs diagonally opposite, or...
2) the other way round, having the dining room area with table and chairs in that alcove and the living room area diagonally opposite (the TV would go to the eastern wall). However, I'm not really happy with these designs. My style is a mix of art deco, eclectic, Asian/African. There is dark-brown wooded parquet in the room with white walls of 2,80m height.
