Has anyone any suggestions please for plants for my fairly dark and warm lounge. I've got a peace lily which does well but I'd like a few more.

Go all 1970s and get a spider plant. Macramé yourself a holder in string and hang it in a hook in the corners of the room.

I love spider plants but hate macrame as I remember how dusty it got!

You can wash it 😁

How about a fern of some sort, they thrive in darker conditions.

I have grown bromelaids in warm darker rooms

Dracena or Dragon Tree tolerate low light and are attractive. They and spider plants also clean the air, a wonderful bonus.

I have a peace Lily that just goes on and on. Others are artificial but very good quality from TK Maxx or charity shops. So good you can't tell without touching them. I also dry hydrangea flowers for a great show.

I have a small indoor garden, spider plants, peace Lilly, jade plants, cactus, aloe Veras, and some bulbs , all together on a chest

That sounds lovely Annie.

Thank you all for your suggestions.

I forgot the sanservieria, have two. When I had to accept I couldn't work in the garden I decided to bring the garden indoors 😀
