Could somebody give me suggestions as to how to furnish my living room? It is a 6 ft by 12 ft room. Thanks in advance.

Think small apartment size furnishings. Love seat, or two reclining chairs. Coffee tables are not an absolute, and a small stand (with drawer & shelf) can go between the chairs or next to the love seat. A book case to hold books, magazines, trophy, etc. You could place a table lamp on top of the book case for additional lighting or get a floor lamp. Having enough floor space keeps things from being cramped up looking and a big area rug in the middle of the room adds a bit of pizazz. Hang a painting, mirror, or photos on the wall and you've got comfortable living room quarters, and maybe hang a live or artificial plant from the ceiling.
Work from the ends of the room, use very little furniture and keep the pieces small. Remember mirrors help to make a room look bigger. Depending on door placement maybe try two small round soft comfy chairs in one end of the room with a lamp/table between. A round ottoman with storage in front of the chairs for both to use. In the other end have your entertainment equipment low key.
