Puppy proof the living room.
Baby gate the living room so it keep the pup in and the kitties out while you are trying to relax.
Use a leash on him while you are down in the living room. No law about that, and you will be able to redirect him when he starts chewing on the table leg or couch.
He will settle down when his mental and physical needs are met, and he understands the house rules, while at the same time he is not overwhelmed, over-tired, or pushed beyond what his body ought to be doing.
Good luck. It takes most of us a little while to find the right balance.
