Thanks Jack, what furniture should i add i cant think of anything that would go well
So, I repeat, don't take it personal. See it as a blessing that some of these guys are giving you tips and comments as free advice.
To answer your question, some sort of window treatment like drapes or blinds (or both) at the windows and doors will keep the hot sun out and the a/c bill down. It will also keep the neighbors from peeking in your windows and the glare off the tv screen! I'd probably add a couple of benches under the windows styled to match the sofas, but with hinged tops for storage. Book cases are always nice, small pedestals with sculpture or potted plants, something like that. You're probably going to want matching area rugs under the sofas and ottomans (or would it be ottomen?) to keep them from sliding around and scratching the surface of your floor too.
If those LED tubes and the 2 recessed lights are going to be the only lights in the room, you may find that a couple lamps here and there would be welcome. The LED tubes, being that far up in the recess in the ceiling will project a rectangular beamwidth some small amount larger than the recess itself. There will be some pretty good shadows cast near the walls, and the 2 recessed lights will just sort of make a spot on whatever they are aimed at. This would be fine for watching tv and kicking back with a girl, but if someone wants to read a book, the lighting may be inadequate. Moving the LED tubes closer to the edge and adding a diffuser panel would help a great deal.
Just play around with it. There's an art to decorating a room to make it warm and inviting. An art I have not mastered, by the way. My attempts at this sort of stuff either wind up looking like a doctor's office or a flea market. I just draw the stuff, somebody more talented designs it. Look at decorating magazines, websites like HGTV and such for ideas, and you'll soon sort it out.

Well, to be honest, my comment was just a statement of the obvious. It was not a shot at anyone. The truth is, anybody can render an empty room. Just put up 4 walls, add a window, drop in a couple of couches and hit render. And if you're using a daylight system, you don't even have to bother with lighting. Just tweak a few settings and voila, instant daylight. So the reason we are only complaining about the furniture is because that's all there is to critique. The render looks fine, but the room is just empty. This is the same advice I have given on the previous two renders. You need to add more stuff. But I feel like my advice is just going in one ear and out the other.
But anyway, I'll just leave the advice giving to the "polite" people from now on. Lord knows I have enough work of my own to do without taking time out to critique other people's work.
Keep at it and good luck.
