Furniture Arrangement in Very Long Living Room?

Q: We recently purchased a Cape Cod style home with a very long living room. The two very best features are the view and the Lannon stone double sided fireplace. That said, I am stumped as to the best layout for furniture.

I don't want to block the view — it's the first thing you see when you enter. The living room is sunken. So far the only thing I've done is to freshen up, paint the walls a light grey and paint out the '50's dark trim. The original carpet will come up and be replaced with a darker wood floor. I do have a few pieces of furniture, but really the only thing that needs to stay for sure is an upright piano that was a gift. I am open to any ideas from the Apartment Therapy community! Thanks for your feedback!
