My Livingroom Decor Dilemma

Good Morning Sweets,

Here is my living room

The first change would be to add a rug which may warm up the space up, and add visual interest. The black leather chair and the coffee table are going to be leaving (up for debate).

Thank you lovely's in advance for all your help & suggestions!
