How To Lay Out Furniture in New Condo Living Room?

Good Questions

Q: My wife and I just purchased a condo, and we are having problems with laying out furniture. We didn't think we were going to have a hard time, but everything thing we tried looked weird and cluttered and just wasn't working. I have been looking on Apartment Therapy but didn't find a good answer so I decided to get some help:

We haven't purchased a sectional sofa yet, but are planning to purchase one (we tried with our regular sofa).

Blue = TV. Red = couch. Green = dining table

Layout 1 : I think this is best I've got so far (those blocks of colored furniture are roughly sized in). One thing is that HVAC wall comes down more than that...

Layout 2 : I thought this was going to work before we moved in, but it looked very cluttered because there was only a little space between the HVAC wall and the couch.

I will take any suggestions/ideas! Thank you.
