In modern homes, this really is unlikely to be possible due to space limitations, though traditionally, fireplaces were considered to be the perfect central element into a living room! But it's important to remember that the objective of your living room will be inviting to people, to get them to feel comfortable and relaxed, and stimulate good conversation. So even without a central fireplace, making the fireplace some sort of focus will also work well. Mirrors are a wonderful tool to enhance Feng Shui in a living room. They bring light into darker areas and can reflect aspects of the room that visitors might not exactly otherwise enjoy. Mirrors make rooms look larger (and lighter) and very usefully, they could reflect the door, so any seating that cannot face the entranceway can still have the door visible through the use of mirrors. Just as before, we need to adapt this principle to modern cities and homes, even though the best placement for a mirror is when it can reflect a lovely view.
