Need Design advice!

I need help designing the living/dining/kitchen area of my New York apartment. I have attached a picture link below. Ideally I would have a dining table, kitchen island, and seating/tv viewing area, but I don't know if I can fit all three in. Dimensions are in inches. That blob in the lower half of the picture is my current table which can stay or go as needed. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks!

I'd like to add that I'd really like the seating area to include a sofa bed or daybed for guests. Can't wait to hear some ideas!

i think an island would be pushing it, but it depends on your personality.

personally, i like more empty space.

it helps me to feel freer and not so stuffy.

The world is already stuffy enough!

i think your table could stay, as far as resourcefulness and functionality is concerned, but you may want to spruce it up with some accent pieces that tie in your living space.

Hope that helps!

The island might make it a bit crowded... It really depends on how much space you need. Do you entertain guests often? If so, maybe go for some furnishings which can easily be moved to open up space.

I suggest you try the Asian-inspired living room and bedroom. This layout can save you a lot of space. Asian living rooms and bedrooms are known to be simple yet elegant - not too many furniture sets, appliances. Most oriental living rooms are compact. To compensate, you have to accessorize or decorate it with 1 or 2 Asian ornaments, such as wind chimes.

I found an article about Oriental wind chimes here:

Actually, to clarify, the island COULD work, if you compensate for its presence by adding a bit of breathing room elsewhere in the apartment.
