Living room has 2 focal points, fireplace and built in entertainment center

Our family room has a fireplace flanked by french doors and on another wall a built in entertainment center. The room is also open to the kitchen via a counter high bar. Current seating is a sofa and loveseat. Looking to replace seating arrangement. Want to keep open feel.

Two photos:
The one with the black and white television is:
