Entryway Ideas (when you have no entryway)

So, one of the compromises I had to make when buying my new house was sacrificing a true foyer entryway...something I had always dreamed of having...for a front door that opens directly into the living room. I'd like to create some sort of entryway "feel". I am open to any and all suggestions!

A little sidenote:

The couch on the right is against the wall because that is the main (high traffic) walkway of the house leading to the dining, kitchen and stairs. I've already tried moving it forward (which would of easily solved my problem and created an entryway effect - but it blocks the main walkway of the house in an awkward way. Directly across from that couch is the fireplace and tv mounted above. Across from the window and loveseat on the left, are the stairs leading upstairs and 2 accent chairs.
