Dear Carmen Noemi,
    Congratulations on your future purchase. I also love modern furniture and I think it can look great with a piano. I would incorporate a traditional modern style to give the look of elegance with simplicity. A piano is a large piece and is very elegant so you want it to fit in the space right. I would choose furniture in metal and furniture in soft neutral woods.
Since you have such a narrow space I think it would feel more open if you kept the long walls white and then paint the window wall a color.  Keep it simple with white drapes and metal lamps. What do you already have in your space? Pull colors from them and follow this advice and your spcae will look great. Hope this helps and please let me know if you want to see something different. Good Luck!
