How to Arrange Our New Living Room?

Q: We are soon to be first-time home buyers and this is the living room (staged furniture by sellers).  I have NO idea how to actually create a space with lots of seating (i.e. a sectional, loveseat, couch...?) without blocking the walk through the living room to the rest of the house.  HELP! 

I will say I do not like this set up – couch and one chair.  That's not enough seating.  We plan to place a TV above the mantle and a small wooden something on the left of the fireplace to hold DVR, DVD player, etc. What are your suggestions on furniture and furniture placement?  The room is 19' X 12'. Another problem is I don't want to put something too close to the beautiful french doors that lead into the eating area...HELP!

Editor - Any recommendations of how SG can optimize her space and furnishing choices without blocking her french doors or heating vents?
