Help needed - how to add doors to separate an office space?

We are moving into a home that has a large sitting area off of the entry that also shares an arched opening into the dining room. We’d like to make the sitting room into more of a formal office, and add doors to both openings so that the space can be enclosed while I am working.

We have thought about trying to do French pocket doors in the larger opening and just a standard framed set of French doors on the smaller opening, but worried that’s a lot of French doors. Also worried the pocket doors might not be feasible.

Looking for all suggestions on door installations or design ideas to enclose the space while still allowing light to pass through!
