Here's one of my versions of effectively using up the space on a 24' wide by 2 story tall great room. There's no need to make the fireplace the focal point here especially in Florida, but it is nevertheless an integral part of the design.

timglidden, my first thought was the right right on the same wall as the fireplace. That way you could use your current furniture arrangement for watching TV, just enjoying the fire, or both. Keeping it on the same wall helps to define the area, while putting the TV where the art work is might turn the entire open plan into a TV room. That's not such a bad thing -- it all depends on how you want to use the room, and how visible you want the TV to be. For more opinions, you might post this (with more pictures) in the Advice section. You'll get a lot of tips over there!
