Q: I recently moved into a new home and have absolutely no idea about how to arrange my living room furniture. I have three main pieces: a television on a large stand and two sofas. The problem is the area is a little long and there are really no walls to anchor from. I have a fireplace, an opening to dining room, a half-wall to the kitchen, an opening to the front door entry, alongside an opening to the hallway and up the stairs. I would really like for one of the sofas to face the TV directly, but I have no idea how to achieve this without blocking any of the walkways. The layout shows how I have it now, but it's absolutely horrible...
