How To Improve Flow for Loft Party?

Good Questions

Q: My living room/kitchen/TV room/studio is a beautifully large, open plan loft. But I'm having a hard time making it "party ready". There's some dead space just as you enter that is where people tend to hang around, since it is close to the kitchen, and then nobody really moves on to the "sitting" area.

The furniture layout takes into consideration the exposed metal beams running in the ceiling, which help give some division between the different areas in the open plan space. I welcome any suggestions for moving furniture around that might help!
