5 tricks to decorate a living room with a green couch

Green sofas continue to be seen in the schemes of many interior designers around the world. From rich earthy olives to soothing sages, green’s connection with the natural world gives it a freshness and everlasting appeal. The secret to these verdantly upholstered items is their ability to simultaneously feel neutral whilst presenting all the joy of a statement piece. Green also works across a variety of sofa styles, from minimalist sectional and modular sofas to maximalist chaises and loveseats.

It’s also important to consider the color palette and style of your scheme to ensure your green sofa stands the test of time. To help you avoid these pitfalls, we’ve curated our favorite green sofa schemes along with expert advice from interior designers on how to make the most of this refreshing shade.

Green is a great team player; it can contrast and complement other colors with ease allowing you to create a truly unique interior. This design from Australian designer, Greg Natale showcases the appeal of a cool-toned green sofa. “When styling the green couch in my Kyle Bay project, I brought in burgundy tone pillows, as red and green are complimentary colors. As for the surrounding interior, timber ceilings, and concrete walls reinforce an earthy feel, which allows the green color to really excel,” Greg says.
