Where to Place TV in Open Concept Room?

Good Questions

Q: My wife and I have hit a wall with our living room design. We have a cozy open space combining the kitchen, dining area, and living room. However, we can’t seem to find a good place for the TV without placing a sofa in the middle of the living room:

We considered mounting the TV on top of the fireplace, but don't relish the idea of having stiff necks after catching our favorite shows. Another option was to mount the TV to left of the fireplace, but we realized that the window directly across the room may cause a bit of glare. The most obvious solution is to place the TV and console along the long wall to the right of the living room, with the sofa across from it. We’re concerned that this option will separate the space and work again the “open” flow concept. Can you help? Thank you!
