Where should we put the couch or tv?

Hey everyone!! I have a little design dilemma. We want to get a sectional but don't know where to put it. Should we move the tv above the fireplace or leave it where it is?
Our living room design is very odd and confusing....

A floor plan would be helpful for furniture placement ideas.

Yes, a floor plan and some more pictures. Is the tv now in the dining room?

This furniture placement is breaking up the room and taking away from the fireplace which is usually a focal point. If that TV is to big for the living area try using a spare bedroom if you have one.

Out a 8x10 area rug in color. In front of TV, push chairs into room closer to TV. Get a 3 rd chair. Place together. That ca be yr media room. Then in living room get a L shape with left side return. 3 seater. Not to bulky, and not black, or brown. If going leather go a dove gray, with chrome legs. Low and sleek. No TV over Firepl. Instead a. Nice big art in bold colors contemporary. Area rug in a silver shag. A ottoman square 36" or a glass coffee table square. Take a pic from black chairs into room.

Room is traditional, go a L shape 3 seater but in a fabric, a cream and add accent color pillows. Love wall color. On area rugs go a traditional design with reds, creams etc. both rooms. A big 45" sunburst mirror over fire place. A big palm next to firepl by media room. Just a few mercury glass pots on selves, mixed with accent color. Dark wood square 36" coffee table.put a big basket fill with plants tall. It would be nice to hang panels on each end of opening to media. Just to give it a separate room look. Go a gray taupe, velvet. hang 2 on each side. Brings separation in.

Ok se other pic. Add panels like I suggested for media, and ad to ends of LR window. Ad roman shade, to match media windows. 2 small accent chairs in front of window but pulled up to area rug. Not on it. Do you have recessed lights in ceiling? If so hang chandler over coffee table drop to 36" above table centered. A black and antique gold with crystals. 20-24".

I believe you need a separate media room and leave these two rooms as a living/dining room. The furniture you have is too modern and not right for the room. Are you planning to buy new furniture? If so, try to go light and sophisticated and match the style of the room. Hope you like as you did not preference your color options.

Looks like you are using two rooms as one room, which looks a little off. Looks like your fireplace room is a little larger so that might be the way to go.

This "living room" actually looks like a living/dining combination, as evidenced by the chandelier in your TV area. I'm sure those chairs are very comfortable for watcing TV, but they overwhelm your space. A sectional would tend to overwhelm, as well. Consider space available when choosing furniture, otherwise it might look like wall-to-wall furniture, and you want a little "space in your togetherness!"

The 2 chairs that are in that room are temporary until we can figure out what to do with the 2 rooms.

Looks to be a living and dining space. Is there a wall opposite the FP where TV could go?

You have two rooms, so they should be treated as living room as one and dining room as the other. Trying to use both as one will not work.
