Need help with the family room..

The shape is rectangular rather awkward to make nice and comfy. Looking for suggestions for seating arrangements and also, wondering opinions on end tables, I have to lamps and need to end tables, design wise...do both tables need to be identical, or is it best for one to be square and one circle . It is for the lamp with the darker shades. Thanks for feedback.

Circle table is fine but you should use wall lamps instead of table lamps makes the room look more spacious!!

No, the tables don't have to match and it doesn't matter what shape table. I would consider having similar lampshades on both lamps. I would also consider a larger table for under the television - one larger than the television itself and also hanging the drapes higher - just under the molding.

A simple update would be to remove sheers and install new drapery panels at the ceiling. Flank each side of the fireplace with the red chairs placing your existing floor lamp beside the red chair to the right of the firreplace. Purchase a media cabinet for the TV. Remove the horns over the fireplace and replace with artwork. Purchase throw pillows with pops of red and add a small coffee table.
