Furniture Layout in New Living Room?

Good Questions

Q: I just moved into a new apartment and I can't figure out how to layout my furniture in the living room! It is a decent size (12'x18'), but there are a lot of door openings, and I would prefer to keep the tv off of the fireplace mantel because it is too high. My couch has an awkward "L" shaped foot rest and my only other piece of furniture I have is a fairly standard chair. HELP!
