Furniture Layout Advice- Front Door Opens to Stairs & Living Room

I’m looking for advice on how to layout our living room area, since our front door opens to the upstairs stairwell & the living room. There’s a landing that cuts into the living room about 6 inches and to the left of the stairs is a coat closet and a doorway into another spare room (currently our homeschooling classroom). There’s a fireplace on the right wall in the center, and our tv sits on top of the fireplace. We’re redecorating to a modern farmhouse theme and currently have a couch, loveseat, 2 end tables & a coffee table (which we’ll be replacing), and a glider rocking chair with ottoman (that we can replace eventually). We have an IKEA Kallax unit, like the one pictured, that we’d like to add. Also, we’d like to include a bookcase in the room & some type of furniture by the door to serve as a drop zone for keys, sunglasses, etc... I’ve included a layout for what our room looks like now. Any thoughts on how to arrange our furniture to make the room inviting, but also make up for not having an entryway, would be greatly appreciated.
