I suggest creating a reading area, very minimal but comfortable. You have a scandinavian/industrial vibe going on.  To keep within that style, these are good options:

From Ikea:

either of these side tables:

To accomodate books, these from Umbra are great; I use them at home and they provide much flexibility and are very sturdy. Additionally, they make great use of available space. They come in small, medium and large:

Love the new wall color. Your sofa and area rug go perfectly.

First of all, I would turn either turn your area rug 90 degrees, or consider using it under the dining table if it is big enough and get a new one for the living room. The area rug really should be large enough so that at least both front legs of any living room furniture are on the rug.

Can you also pull your sofa away from the window wall so there is room for an end table and lamp? Moving the sofa down the long wall abit will also help use up that space between the living and dining rooms.

The only seating you show in your living room is the sofa. I would get a couple of comfortable upholstered chairs that swivel so they can be extra seating for the living room but also used in the dining room when you need extra seating.

Place a small accent table between the two chairs and a bookshelf along the wall where the fireplace was.

I would go with a mini bar set up, or replace the fireplace. They come in a variety of styles and sizes, as well as price points. I love your furniture, and I do like the way the old owners had their place set up (cant see the full view of your set-up 🙂

Love your style, and I agree on the mini bar–perfect spot between dining and living room!
