"Authenticity to the period" is for museums displays. This is your HOME, and it's not the mid-century period anymore. Why not at least try a platform underneath? Best case scenario, it ends up looking pretty cool while also making the sofa practical. Worst case scenario, you decide not to use it after all.
Risers for Modern Sofa?

The speakers are fine, really. The deep colors in the sofa and console work well with the black. The problem is the great expanse of not much that is that wall. It needs color-nothing too pale, and definitely not a neutral! You've got plenty of neutral, which is fine, but you're maxed out at this point. Honestly, if you get a color on the wall, the white curtains may be just fine. I like the idea of a very tall potted plant to balance out that wall. And then a few more accessories here and there-some photos in black frames with white mattes would pick up on the black of the speakers and white of the curtains-so that there's more to look at in the room than just the TV.
