Need design help. New couch and chair with ottoman will replace couch and loveseat in picture. The coffee table stays. Old Irish pub table with short legs. Walls now sage being painted BM Durango dust due too need for change and darker furniture. What would you do?

Well some pictures are better than no pictures, but you're still not giving us much to go on. It looks like you're going with an earthy theme, try adding some wooden floor lamps and wooden end tables to go with but not match the wood of the coffee table. The chair looks like it's rather shallow so avoid bulky throw pillows, maybe just a bolster if you really want something.

Are you keeping the area rug? Personally I would change that to something along these lines: http://olld-houzzers.freeforums.net/thread/185/olld-11-14?page=1&scrollTo=10026

Carpet is history. Purchased 15 years ago at THD for $100. Kids gone...not concerned about spills anymore. Like your ideas.

Typically, yes, but it is not required. Here's an Ideabook on breaking the rules for rug placement:
