    The radio is on the table.
    TheBookshelf is in the the bottom rightcorner.
    A (or the) fat black cat is sitting in front of the fire .
    TheFireplace is beneath the beautiful picture.
    The\aWall clock is hanging in the top left corner.

    The bookshelp being in the bottom right-hand corner sounds strange- I'm not too keen on the use of 'bottom' here.
