Can I mount a TV above seating in my living room?

I currently have 2 couches facing eachother in my living room with a fireplace on one end and the other end a media cabinet with the TV. I would like to add more seating to the living room and have 2 awesome upholstered wingback chairs. I would like to remove the media cabinet and mount the TV above the 2 chairs on the wall directly accross from the fireplace. These chairs would not be for viewing TV but for visiting when we have guests over. Attached is a layout I drew up - the curved wall is the fireplace and where the 2 chairs are is where the TV would be mounted above. I have seen this once but can't find a picture or remember where I saw it.

Sorry but the layout did not attach. Would be great if you uploaded pictures so people can get a definite idea of your space and furnishings.

Only mount TVs high when you can watch from a recliner unless you want to support your chiropractor in your old age

I think so. If you watch a lot of TV you ideally want to look into a TV (eye level when sitting) not up at a TV but just above chairs doesnt seem like it would be that high. If the couches are set back further than the angle drops also.

Thank you, I'll try again... I don't have an actual photo of my living room but will try to get one up. The TV would be mounted a little high, but our living room is very long, so you aren't looking up too high from the couches.

Does anyone have a picture or know where I can find one where a TV is mounted directly above any kind of seating?

Have the TV mounted above the chairs. Sorry for the poor quality. There is a large window behind the couch on top and no wall (open to the kitchen) behind the couch in the bottom the picture. The fireplace is rounded out on the right side.
