Need layout help for big but awkward family room

hhein
last month

Our family room is good-sized but with few walls and a really large fireplace wall that dominates the room. We like the position of the sofa and TV (they've been in every imaginable configuration), and we use the round table under the railing a lot (arc lamp is not usually there, FYI), but need help with the built-in bookcase and how to finish/utilize the rest of the room. We have can lights but ambient lighting is an issue because there are no in-floor outlets. Hubby wants to rip out the bookcase and install floating shelves on the brick. I thought we might want to enclose the bookshelves and make a cleaner-looking built-in cabinet. Also considering a console with lamps on the right wall next to current bookcase. We are getting railings updated soon with black metal (horizontal) rods and white trim. Would appreciate any suggestions on making this room comfortable, more finished, and more useable. We spend a lot of time here watching TV and playing games and eating at the table. Thank you!
