Placement of Sofa and Faux Fireplace?

Good Questions

Q: My living room is 13' x 15' with a large window and two entrances. One entrance leads to the entry hall and the other leads to the dining room/kitchen. I have a faux fireplace and a sofa from my grandmother. The sofa is an old Duncan Phyfe. I would like to keep both of them in the room, but I don't like like the placement. I have tried putting them on different walls, but my layouts don't seem to work. I also don't like where the TV is located. It looks lost on the wall. Anything else in the room can be changed. I was planning to retile the mantel and redo the sofa. Should I keep the sofa and the fireplace, or just replace them with something modern?
