Definately go with the biggest display that you can in the 70 inch and up category. In this case bigger is better than high quality. Maybe there is another room where you could sit closer to a higher quality TV.
Soon, I'm going to be sitting about 8 feet away from the 65 inch VT50. Wall mounted, surrounded by 6 Axiom Audio speakers (5 M22 + VP160 + EP350), mounted just above and below the TV. For me, I'll be in HD heaven.
If I was to leave the furniture along the wall, I'd be looking at about 15 feet of distance. Since I live alone, I can get away with other strange living room setups, so I just set a loveseat at the 8 foot distance and live with it. Perhaps you could do this on a temporary condition, for movie night perhaps.
Another idea: Can you move the TV closer to the sitting area?
