Q: Hi! My fiance and I just moved into our first home, and we absolutely love our house. It's got hardwood floors throughout, large bedrooms, and a HUGE backyard. The only issue is our living room. I'm at a complete loss on how to arrange the furniture. Our living room has three closets, a front door, a huge window, a fireplace, and a doorway that leads to the dining room. There isn't a single blank wall. We also have an oversized couch and a 60" flatscreen that my fiance insists on mounting above the fireplace. Compromises....right?:

The big red recliners are NOT staying in the room, so please just pretend they're not in the pictures. I'm completely open to any ideas, and I would like to add a chair or two to replace the recliners.

Please help! Thanks for your consideration and any ideas you may have.
