Transitioning from tile to hardwood floor without a natural divider

We are wanting to lay down octogan tile in the kitchen that has no natural transition to hardwood. If we run it from the inside of the entryway it hits the center of a display cabinet instead of the end. If we angle it it cuts the kitchen entry.

Would it look horrible if it was lined up from the entry way door to the center of the cabinet? Ideas??

Can you post a picture or a drawing of the area in question? Without seeing how the areas come together, it would be tough to suggest a good transition point.

You may be able to do multi-angled transition that will look nice, say two or three sides of an octagon to connect the corner of the kitchen entry with the corner of the display cabinet.
