The main entrance is on the wall adjacent to the sliding glass door, face the main seating towards sliders with its side toward the main entrance.
Position the secondary seating such as it faces the main entrance of the room. If sliders are opposite to the main entrance wall, this will mean placing seating in front of sliders and then selecting small pieces such as armchairs.
