Living Room Layout in Challenging Space?

Good Questions

Q: I am moving into a new apartment in a couple of months and I'm really excited; however, the living room layout has me stumped. The kitchen counter is in a unique location, so it limits what my mind can conjure up for living room furniture placement:

Pin it button big

The obvious solution would be to place the couch along the long wall, but then there would be no place to put, or mount, the television, and that is a complete must-have in my world! So, considering the long wall is out for the couch placement, is there anything you guys can do to help me?

I'm excited to hear your ideas!
