How To Deal with Awkward Fireplace Location?

Good Questions

Q: I'm struggling to figure out how to set up seating in this living room configuration. I'm ripping out the carpets and putting in hardwoods, recessed lighting, molding and paint. But I can't figure out the seating with this fireplace and sliding door. I want my flat screen in this room as well, but I don't want the TV to be the focal point.

I haven't bought any furniture yet, so I'm open to all ideas. I'm really interested in getting a sectional, so if that can be incorporated, that would be great. I haven't been able to find anything online quite like this fireplace location. Please help!
