    Do you have a pic of the area? For a separation you could do a tile in front of the door, and maybe a coat tree or bench to somewhat divide the entry from the rest of the living room.

    A free standing armoire could be incorporated to create a small entry area that also provides a place for coats, hats, umbrellas etc. If that area could also have different flooring and perhaps separate wall lighting of some kind, you could create a very nice space indeed.

    One way is to have a section of flooring right by the door be a contrast to the rest - if the living room is carpeted, then tile a small section in front of the door for a visual room divider. Another is to use tall furniture to define the area like a wall - a sofa table, coat rack, screens, fake trees, etc. to give another visual room barrier. Finally, paint the "fake entry" in a different, but complementary wall color to define the new barrier.

    I've used my chrome and glass etageres as an entry way divider with my shell and fossil collection on them.... https://www.wayfair.com/furniture/pdp/willa-arlo-interiors-olander-etagere-bookcase-wlao1916.html
    You can also use a row of tall bookcases and finish the back with grass cloth wallpaper to hang art on or use fabric.
    And the classic room divider from Ikea makes a statement... in 4 colors.....a great place to show off your collectibles.... http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70301542/#/50360146

    We have the same situation and for us anyway there is no room for any divider, screen etc. There is one short piece of wall which this mirror hangs on. There is a small table under it. A runner from front door to staircase. The rest of the room is just living room. We could have put a bookcase where this table is but with its back to the mirror and shelves facing the sofa. But we felt this would "box" in the room too much (room is only 15' X 15'. I saw a very small apt fixed up so well, and to define the "entrance" the Home owner had simply made a patch of floor different than the rest of the flooring.
