Layout Ideas for New Living Room?

Good Questions

Q: I just got an awesome one bedroom apartment with my girlfriend, with unique design and old time charm (photos below). There is one huge problem..It's small! The living room is 153sq ft (9x17), shaped like a long rectangle, with sliding doors to a deck on the north end My girlfriend and I have some ideas for the living room, but we'd like to get some other opinions on layout since we're thinking twice about it.

We're up for any and all ideas. The struggle is that we would like to fit the following:
• A 52" flat screen
• Coffee or sidetable
• Some kind of seating for the tv
• A desk (preferably more than a cubby hole)
• Bookshelf (maybe?)
• At least a 2 person eating area

Can you help us? Pretty please!?
