what would you do with this space?

last month

Looking for ideas...what would you do with this space? I’d like to create an inviting retreat to be used for playing games, visiting, eating, and relaxing. Looks like with the size of the dining table, we would need a 7x12 rug....not easy to find. I was thinking a tree in the corner with a beautiful basket or pot? Wall plants? I’d love to hear your ideas.
