Layout of Living Room with a Corner Fireplace?

Good Questions

Q: Hi there — we have a DC rowhouse with a corner-located fireplace (not uncommon in houses of this vintage) and are trying to figure out how best to design the living room. The sofa placement is especially problematic, so I'm ooking for ideas. The room is 13 x 16 with a bay.
