    Janice: make the fireplace the focal point of the room... arrange furniture so that all sitting can see the focal point

    I too have a narrow den with a fireplace at the end. It is a rather nice size room, but hard to arrange furniture.

    If this is a den where the guys have to have a long sofa for naps (like mine), you just have to do the best you can.

    I removes older furniture that is too deep for the room. My TV cabinet with 2 bookcases was over 23" deep and I gave it to my daughter and put in a low, smaller 17" cabinet...eliminated that "closed in" feeling and gave an additional 6" width.

    The coffee table is too large, but the guys love it!

    Sometimes you do the best you can. One thing is to take out larger pieces and pieces not needed for the room!

    Try to avoid arranging the furniture against the walls, if you can avoid it. You could also set it up as two areas, one at rear of room, and another sitting area by fireplace.
