I think the only thing that would look good is a tv. You don't have to "mount" it. Flat screens also have stands.

thanks. To answer a few questions,
1. the walls right now are off white and there is beige carpet.

2. I don't think that budget is an issue but I have a cb2/westelm budget. I don't want to pay more than 1200 for a sofa/sectional.

3. side walls are about 10 feet and the width of the room is 16 feet. The wet bar area is 5 feet wide. The sliding door is 6 feet wide and I get afternoon sun (walkout).

4. This is primarily going to be a hang out/tv area. Im soon to be 30. So I want a fresh clean look.

5. I am apprehensive about putting furniture at the foot of the stairs.

I am having a really tough time figuring out the furntiture layout of this room because it seems so akward. I want to paint but since the wall continues up the stairs its hard to know where to stop painitng. I dont have the budget for a plasma tv right now but I do need seating/tables/lamps/tvtable.

Hand sanitizers and alcohol wipes are entirely useless and do almost nothing but rub the germs around. In order to kill bacteria you need a 30 minute contact time. Also there are many different types of bacteria that can live at all extremes of temperatures. dont waste your money on these products.

I have the one in the middle of the photo from CB2. I think its called the circa high dining table. I just purchased it last week and I absolutely love it. The base and pole is painted metal and the top is wood. I bought similar barstools from ikea. Actually I thought the barstools (69 each) seemed more pricey than the table (149) I always thought a table should cost more. It is small but cute for two. I cant speak for how well it ages.
