How do I arrange furniture in my new dining/living room?

Help! We are moving into our new home in just a few weeks and I'm not too sure what to do about furniture layout in our combo living/dining room. It is a rectangular shaped space with a fireplace. We have a leather sectional and a dining room table. I had envisioned placing the sectional facing the fireplace and placing the TV on top of the fireplace mantel to create one common focal point. Unfortunately, there isn't the proper electrical outlets for the TV to be placed upon the mantel without seeing cords all over. (Cord Clutter = yuck). So, I was thinking of putting the dining room table in front of the fireplace and putting the TV on the opposite wall where I can hide the cables/wires in a media console. Can I "flip" the lay out?? Will it look OK? (Attached is a photo of the space facing the fireplace as well as a photo of the kitchen which is beside this room). THANK YOU!
