Need help choosing sofa color!

Hi all,
my partner and I bought an house (our first :)).
Now we need to choose the sofa for the sitting room.
The room is 4.3m x 3.35m with solid Cherry Wood floor, cast iron open fireplace with wooden surround.
We choose a double color leather sofa, 3 seats, we are struggling to visualize and decide which color can match better with the surrounding colors of the room, especially floor and fireplace (the walls we could redecorate in future).
I attach the room pics and 4 different sofa choices we like: Navy/white, Red/black, Black/red, Aspen white/purple. I could attach only 4 pics so is missing the black with red, but you can easily understand is the opposite of the red with black version.
Please help me!
Marta

Navy/White, but always go with your first choice.

I would like you to have Aspen White/Purple. This should go well with the flooring. You can place a tufted rug in the center and can have curtains in contrast.

A cool thing is just getting a plain grey or white couch and then just focus all the attention on cushions.

Your fireplace is rustic. Are you keeping? I would. The sofas you show are very modern. What is your style? The two tone colors on leather is not good. Is there a reason you want leather? I would go a warmer, more cozy look. You could go leather seats with fabric back pillows. That will give you the best of both worlds. With two large leather chairs like a honey color. Sofa a darker brown with a print in back pillows. 8 x11 area rug. Round or square coffee table big 36"

Could you get a flat screen TV, easier to work with. Then get a buffet type chest in a reclaimed wood long, as long as that wall TV is at now. Place TV on Top. Not angled, against that wall. Mirror over firepl not working. You need big 40" art with some color. Place wood candle. Holders on ends only with a accent color candle. add just a few decor items to bookcase. A few books. Pots bowls. Thing you collect? Keep it uncluttered. Don't have to fill every space. The mirror could work on another wall.

I am attaching this photo to give you some ideas of mixing modern and victorian. Your fireplace is very classical, while your furniture choice so far is very modern. You can see the lamps are a very contemporary one and then one that has traditional lines, but contemporary finishes. The clean lines of the modern sofa are offset by the victorian chairs in modern fabrics. Area rug is what I would call transitional, melding between the two styles. [The window coverings are simple, clean lined, grommet draperies. Art is a mix of a contemporary canvas and victorian picture frames in contemporary finishes. And finally, the accessories are very victorian with contemporary finishes. This should give you some ideas of how to build your room.

Thank you so much for all your advise. For sure we want to keep the fireplace is so nice!
I don't like that much the think of have a mixed sofa leather only seats and then fabric pillows. I like the modern style, but like as well the clean line rustic/wooden style, don't like the ultra modern of sumptuous/baroque.
Yes we have a flat screen tv. In fact the pic you saw is from the previous owner. So from the pic I've attached nothing is staying. I'm attaching the other pics. Moreover we would like to open an arch between the living area and the kitchen that is on the left hand side of the pic. Like so we'll have a kind of open space between the dining/kitchen and living area. what do you think? We don't have much money to spend at the moment, since almost all are gone for the property itself.
