To be a clerestory window(s) it has to be higher than the neighboring roofs. So, clearing the surrounding roofs.

It is a transom, I guess. What if you did something like this? Outline the window in a darker paint and incorporate art work and furniture to make that wall special.

it is a great space to do something different.

It looks like an ideal wall for the TV. Place a shade mounted above the window so that you can have all the window exposed when you want, but can lower it as you need to.

I don't think your sectional sofa will fit crosswise in the room, will it, and still have enough space to easily walk by it? So I would place the sectional sofa on the left wall, opposite the fireplace and have the chair facing the TV, just as it is in the photo above.

It looks like your coffee table is too big to fit between the sections of the sectional sofa. Maybe it you turned it the other way it would work better. It needs to be 18" out from the edge of the sofa.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In architecture, clerestory are any high windows above eye level. The purpose is to bring outside light, fresh air, or both into the inner space.

clerestory, in architecture, any fenestrated (windowed) wall of a room that is carried higher than the surrounding roofs to light the interior space.

When you move your furniture and rehang your painting above the sofa you should lower it so that the bottom of the picture is 5" inches above the back of the sofa. That is the correct placement. Also, when you hang other art make sure that the tops or bottoms of the pictures don't line up with each other or with other features such as door jambs or window tops.
