Our family room has a fireplace flanked by french doors and on another wall a built in entertainment center. The room is also open to the kitchen via a counter high bar. Current seating is a sofa and loveseat. Looking to replace seating arrangement. Want to keep open feel.

I have attached two photos showing fireplaces and televisions in the same horizontal plane in a room. It seems to me to make it easier to look from one to the other (like reading). The space above the fireplace is where the eyes can go to "rest."

Two photos:
The one with the black and white television is:
