How To Arrange Furniture In Narrow Living Room?

Good Questions

Q: I'm in the process of purchasing a small rowhouse in Philadelphia. I am an architect and have enjoyed drawing up different ideas for how to furnish the space but am having a difficult time figuring out what to do with the living room. It is an awkward space, long and skinny (8'-6" at it's skinniest, 11'-0" at it's widest) and the remnants of the old furnace make an awkward bump on one wall. I have gotten to the point of modeling and rendering my furnishing idea and it still seems pretty awkward. Any suggestions?
