Need help with awkward space

We call this the "fireplace room" it is empty because we have no idea how to arrange furniture in it. It is the room that is in between the kitchen, family room, and hallway to the bedrooms. So we don't want to block it completely as it's used as a cut through. Any ideas??

Something along these lines would be nice. I do not know what your style of furnishings are but this is a great place to start for space planning.

From what can be seen here..it looks like this is the "Family Room" and you are using the "Living Room" as one. Easily furnished from what I see and some comments above. A sofa against the back wall w end tables and lamps, and a nice chair next to the great cozy fireplace. Also a great place for a home office room. But leaving it empty is just not acceptable ...;) decorator talk!!!!
PS...your mirrors over the console table are hung to high.

I thought the same as Shanee with 2 chairs. The trick will be in finding the right chairs. A sleek design can be deceptive so know the dimensions you are looking for. Maybe replace the desk area with a bar or bar cart?
