Finding a Focal Point in a TV-Free Living Room?

Finding a Focal Point in a TV-Free Living Room?

Q: I recently moved into a new apartment and finally made the leap to get rid of my TV, something I've been wanting to do for a long time. Now I'm searching for something else to make the focal point of the living room. I considered some sort of faux fireplace but I rent and am not handy so it's been tough. I found the real flame gel fireplace pictured here and like it because there's no installation and you can move it around. It looks pretty neat online but I'm worried it'll look cheap in the hand. Any advice about these or other options for a focal point would be appreciated!
