I am not sure about the lines of the furniture and wall behind her.

Nor am I. I find backgrounds to be the single most challenging aspect of portraiture, and I am rarely content with my choices after I go back and look after a while.

I vividly remember reading Peach Robinson's classic work in which he relates the (possibly apocryphal) story of the young painter who leaned on an influential friend to get him a job in Reubens' studio. The influential friend told Reubens about the young pupil, explaining that he could perhaps be useful to the master because "he was somewhat advanced in art, and would be of immediate assistance to him in his backgrounds," to which Reubens supposedly replied that, if the pupil was in fact capable of painting backgrounds, then he could learn nothing further from Reubens.

The quest continues!
