Lindsey's living room. Note the small space, smashed Lego Star Wars ship, and limited options for couch placement.

This is the end of the room opposite the fireplace and TV. At first glance, it looks like the best place to put the couch, but if you saw the room in person, you'd see that it's too far away (20 feet) from the opposite wall and separated by the flow of traffic from the front door to the dining room.

This is what you see when you first walk into the house. The current TV would be to your right. You have to cross the living room to get to the rest of the house.

See that window? A couch would block it, so no couches there.
