Good Questions: Incorporating New Contemporary Furniture?

ATDC reader Mary would like some help setting up her living room:

"I have a new red leather sofa and love seat in a contemporary style and would like some suggestions on where to find an area rug to go in front of it. Also, I would like some suggestions for a new cocktail table to use. My current one is a large dark granite one with matte black iron legs, and the color is just too dark and drab for the new pieces. Thanks!"
