7 Sofas That Will Make You Green With Envy

by ·

I recently bought two tufted vintage sofas off Craigslist. They came in a cream velvet with seventies skirts. As soon as I got home I ripped off the skirting and started researching upholstery. Since I have yet to decide on a theme for my home I can’t quite nail down the color, but I find myself drawn to the green velvet trend going on right now. Perhaps it’s because emerald was chosen as Pantone’s color of the year (remember this?), but green is the color of the moment right now. Let’s take a look why.

1. This olive green sofa (above) adds in a dash beautiful color against the black and white striped rug, yet it’s neutral enough to not steal the spotlight.

2. This luscious green velvet sofa pays homage to old Hollywood with a more Art Deco vibe. Combined with other textures, like a fur throw and marble coffee table, you almost want to touch everything in sight.

3. Styled in a timbered room, this sofa reads more English countryside as it’s paired with traditional English plaids and florals. The combination of green velvet and an upright sofa style creates a more formal feel without all the discomfort.

4. One of my favorite green sofas is this one from Room and Board in the studio of Joy Cho. The green sofa plays well with the deep pink accent chairs.

5. Highlighted with white framing on the top pillows, this sofa feels more neoclassical in this setting. The green acts as a lovely neutral and accented by the leopard throw pillows.

6. This long green settee plays well against glimmering gold, portraying a feeling of royalty.

7. Stealing the show when combined with whites and creams, this green sofa gives the room a lively pop of color.

How do you like the green sofa trend? Are you willing to jump on?
