OK, lets start. I would get a beautiful round mirror behind the sofa, get stripes armchairs and white single sofas whilst keeping the white in focus.
Your place has a lot of Italian elements so we will try to keep it this way. The Italian stripes and the round mirror will go well with a nice thick round carpet.
For lighting I can recommend our Tierra Del Fuego Chandelier, or any black chandelier above the dining table, and our Buenos Aires Ceiling and Floor lamps to match the living area.
The idea is to keep this classic with modern touches. If you use whites and beiges and add a little black it would look great.
Simple patterns would add volume and enhance your personal selections, especially if every armchair would have a different fabric and they would all match.

That is a fabulous chandelier IRIS suggested! Awesome. Your new sofa is stunning as well. Love IRIS's idea of mixing modern elements.

Hi there,

You have beautiful taste! Can you put together a quick floor plan sketch for me? I would love to put a rendering together for you with some design advice.

Happy Houzzing!

You have no focal point. I suggest adding a ventless fireplace.

Instead of chairs, how about one more sofa? Run them perpendicularly to the wall with the new fireplace. Ground with a rug and add your accents.

I think this picture may be an inspiration for you.

JudyG I turned my sofa perpendicular and toke some pictures. What do you think? Is it ok if I only get side tables for one side of the sofa? I love the idea of a fireplace in the middle. Thanks

This room could use some contrast. In keeping with the art in your dining room:
