Can I put a couch in front of a fireplace?

Our living room has the strangest layout and I can't figure out how to arrange the furniture. We love to look out the window, so I don't want to block the view. The best arrangement I've found is to put the couch right in front of the never-used fireplace. Is that a design no-no? Any advice on what to do with this room? I do have a budget to buy a few new pieces, but don't know where to start. And yes, I know we need to have a garage sale and purge much of this stuff. That's part of the plan.
