With all that shine and sleekness, I'd add texture-- you could put one of those Moroccan wedding blankets over the sofa, or a huge painting-- not a framed print, a painting's brushstrokes would add texture-- and maybe the sofa table could have slender matte black metal legs, and a glass top? So it's not all leather and wood? Gauzy curtains to soften the room, and more plants... texture-y cushions like a chunky cable knit, or woven blanket, or heavily fringed... maybe something in cotton velvet, for a little surprise? Mushroom-y greige velvet is so gorgeous and subtle, and with maybe small gold tassles at the corners? Another wall could have a macrame hanging-- I hear macrame is going to be big this year. What about a wall sculpture? In more matte black metal? A touch of black helps ground things when a space is very bright, as this room is. A wicker basket or two-- as a pot for another (fluffy!) plant, or to hold magazines or books, or sheet music for the piano... a snuggly throw for the backs of the sofas, since the size of the room might make it seem a little chilly? Sorry if I'm all over the place with this, but I loooooove what you have done with this room and can see it being just amazing when it's done, and it's given me so many ideas!
