Answer
If the tv is the focal point in this room place that first on the best wall -- sounds like the long brick wall is the best place for it. Then center you furnishings around it -- toward it, in a cozy grouping.

Remember, you can bring furniture off the wall and also create a separate area for reading, that doesn't focus on the TV, maybe at the other end of the room.
