Furniture Layout in Square-Shaped Studio?

Good Questions

Q: I just purchased a small, studio apartment in NYC and could use some advice on the furniture layout for the main living area. The space is basically a square, so there is a lot of room to play around.

My initial plan is to put a full-sized bed closest to the north window, followed by a room divider and a typical living room set up closer to the entry (tv on the east wall with couch facing it). I'm just wondering if there's anything I'm missing. All the walls will be staying where they are, although I am considering reversing the doors of the outer closet to create a real dressing area. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks for the help!!
