Good Entry Arrangement for Living Room?

Good Questions

0916_gq03a.jpg Q: I'm moving into a new apartment soon and am having trouble trying to figure out a good layout for the living room. The apartment opens directly into the living room and there is no closet. I've already got some hooks to hang by the door for coats but I'd like to somehow separate the entrance from the rest of the living room to give it a more private feel.

The problem is that the living room itself is quite small. How could I arrange the couch/TV/coffee table to both maximize space, as well as define the entrance? I have an Ikea bookshelf and I like the idea of using it as a sort of room divider but I'm afraid there just isn't enough space for it.
