Need help for positioning furniture in large room with fireplace and TV
how would one arrange furniture to enjoy both corner TV and center see through stone faced fireplace, in a family/great room (approx. 26 x 20) fireplace is in center of south end of room (dining room on other side) Windows and door on west side of room (looking out onto deck), wall on north, part of east side open to stairway to basement and also foyer. ( Kitchen is to east across from dining area)

I would float a simple sectional (no lounge extension) in the middle of the room, centered on the window, a glass round coffee table with it on a large square area rug (even if you have carpet.) Make sure the rug is big enough for the sofa and chairs to sit completely on. At a minimum, the front legs of the sofa should be on it. I would put two smaller scale swivel chairs in front of the window (maybe a table between them. On the back wall at the stairwell end, I'd put a low storage credenza and a great piece of art. Measure so it can be centered on the wall when the door is shut but won't interfere with closing the door.
