Shelby sent us an email: "We are in the process of finalizing the purchase of a 1925 bungalow which I love, but one room is driving me crazy. It's the living room, the first room when you walk in the front door, and every wall has either an entryway or a fireplace. We would like this to be a usable room, but we can't figure out a workable furniture arrangement.

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.

"We don't need a TV in the room, just something that keeps it from being a big, expensive entry hall. I've included a picture (don't worry, we're changing the lighting) and an embarrassingly rough drawing of the problem. The room itself is 15x13ft. Any suggestions would be appreciated!"

Calling all AT Design Minds! Can you help Shelby out with arrangement ideas and suggestions for this room? Let her know in the comments below...
