What can I do with this space?

Looks like you really lot of space there. I would suggest you can get book shelves on either sides, or tv stand, Mirror, painting, vase or bench or two accent chairs on either sides. any of these items mentioned works best. You can use wood or glass shelves to store books, family pictures, stuff your car keys, wallets, or crystal decor items. I hope this helps. If you need more help, please let us know.

How about a cozy reading chair and ottoman?

I had to answer, because my local antiques dealer offered me such a sweet deal on a federal armoire just like yours back in my 20's, when I lived in a condo without room for it -- I still miss it!

I'd make it the centerpiece of a bookcase wall:

...whoops -- Alcove said it while I was illustrating it. So, I agree, obviously! It's such a beautiful piece.

I would leave it and paint a strong colour behind it to bring out its wood (a deep orange) and then perhaps move it off center. And put a big soft ottoman in front of it. I just don't want to see things lined up in soldier formation - in a straight line...

Thank you for all your suggestions, please keep them coming. On the opposite side of room is a sitting area so I think adding more chairs may be too many? I will add more photos of the room so you have a feel of the space. This is one room I haven't been able to figure out.

Perhaps a long tufted bench (perhaps a densely woven tapestry or crewel upholstery fabric that brings different hues of the colours you have in your room together) with artwork hung above.

Since you are not needing additional seating, I would focus on art for the wall. A symmetrical arrangement on each side of the armoire... similar to the photo offered above... or a gallery wall of assorted sizes of art or photos.

I also think the mirror over the bed needs to be raised slightly and with something smaller on each side of it to balance the space over the bed. And I would try the picture that is between the two windows over the TV. I think it is too large of scale for where it is now.

A nice large area rug would soften the space.
