Where's the sledge hammer - To tear out a wall or not!

I have a wall that separates my Dining & Living rooms.  I HATE the way it looks and would love to rip it out and put pillars there instead.  It's a supporting wall so I have to have something to hold up the house (LOL) and am not concerned with regards to the cold air intake or electric etc.. as it can be moved (basement is raw).I've attached pics.  Opinions please!!! Front Ent.Front / diningliving / dining
