Defining dining area in open space

I am trying to define the dining area a large open space. The ceiling is only 8 ft high in this area and I am thinking of using crown molding and lighting. I would like to get a new chandelier (or two). Any advice would be welcome.

Add an area rug under the dining table & chairs , make certain it is large enough to pull the chairs all the way out & still be on rug. With a great pop of color! Dark gound color with a vibrant yellow, amethyst, or other jewel tone you like

Also the medallion over the chandelier is too small as is the light itself, you need some sparkle, colored glass,

Use your accent color inside the the cabinet, use fabric adhesive to anchor it to the back, add some glass accessories on your sofa table, pillows paint back ground above the fireplace to balance with the same family if jewel tone.

You could put up a small wall between column and wall.

Why not use a piece of furniture like a long sideboard or something putting it lengthways underneath the beam & to the right hand side of the post that comes down from the ceiling?
