Please help living room arrangement

last modified: last month

Our house is a Capecod and when you step into our home, you are in the living room. It always looks cluttered, we have too many pieces of furniture. I'm planning to start fresh, would like a modular/sectional-type sofa for comfort. We have a family of 5.

Our tv is on the wall next to the fireplace, so you see the back of the couch, but the walk path is like an obstacle course to the kitchen.

We currently have ikea book shelf storage lining the wall shared with the bathroom, and table in the middle. Not sure that will stay.

What would you do to make this space work?

this is the best big pic I have, taken before we moved in and had the painting and floors done:

thanks in advance for your suggestions, it's appreciated!

---update, more pics:

too much happening here, the only things I want to keep are the new tv stand and the black armoire (only because its sentimental). I wish the area was more inviting, accessible, organized.

here is the view from on our stairs looking down:
