Driftwood

For a good while there was nothing but Malaysian driftwood here in Houston so I learned how work with it using simple rules.
Look at the old Nature aquarium book by Mr. Amano most driftwood used is just what you have. If you look closely they keep the driftwood in a single structure unless the tank is so long that two sections need to be created.
Breaking the driftwood in different sizes or removing a section is valid as long as you don't over do it. Put it together and present them in your tank (assuming is empty) change as many times needed. get your substrate ready place your driftwood and make sure you like the way it is now that the substrate is there. Then, plan your aquascape and go get your self some Tropica plants (lucky you) and have fun aquascaping.
Can you tell us what size tank are you working with? Also before I even say more are you going for a Nature aquarium style layout or Dutch?
Best regards,
Luis Navarro

You have a long tank and I really don't think it will be hard to design a simple lay out using your driftwood 60 inches by 24 by 24 is a nice size and since you will use it to divide a room you could start laying out your driftwood from the wall side creating like Robert said a mound I will go for a more triangular design since I don't think you have enough driftwood to do more and aquascape both sides of the mound as you wish.
Please post pictures of your tank! As for Amano pictures on the Internet all you do is a search my friend God knows how many pictures you will find.
