Vintage Green Sofas

Our favorites hail from classic Victorian styles, but have modern updates in the legs and arms. Diamond tufted sofas are totally bourgeois and we love them with clean, square arms. They are 100% devine in lime green velvet and work wonderfully as part of chinoiserie decor.  A green Chesterfield is like heaven on earth.

Set The Mood

If your style is more Bohemian, check out our article on jungle decor and start working those moody colors in. Green sofas give off a natural vibe and blend in with all those plants (lady).  Once again, we’re sticking with a velvet, square arm style with a low profile. A club sofa in forest green works beautifully with other decor items in natural wood.  Add a gallery wall or a hanging kokedama plant (check out our DIY!) and you’re set!

Light + Bright

Need a little cheering up? Green sofas light up your life when paired with yellow accessories. We are smitten by this brilliant dining room, which uses a light green sectional for extra seating. Talk about a cozy nook! Consider working with a huge in a specific saturation and mix up the color with rainbow dining chairs.  This makes the best use of the space most of the family works and studies in.

Did you know? Green sofas are also terrific Feng Shui. Take a look at the Wisdom and Knowledge center of your home, which is enhanced with blue and green.  Both colors promote healthy meditation and thoughtful study. Likewise, green is an excellent way to incorporate the wood element, which promotes personal growth.

If you’ve got parquet wood flooring, or any type of mid-century modern decor, we may be preaching to the choir.  Vintage green sofas found at flea markets or online are foundational musts. If you’ve never experienced the joy of upcycling, read our tips on reupholstering furniture to learn how easy it can be.  Throw in adjustable shelving, such as string shelf units and your living room just got done on a budget.

Trendsetter Alert

When working with a blank canvas, one big punch of color does a lot for any space. Green sofas are much more mellow than their brighter counterparts and instantly invite you to relax. (Take a look at our feature on orange sofas if you don’t know what we’re talking about!)  A big Monstera Deliciosa or other wide-leaf plant gives you room instant Zen.

Remember, this shade is all about renewal and growth. We love green sofas because they’re unusual but super inviting. When you’ve got big color going on, you don’t need much else in the world of decor. Less is certainly more in rooms that boast these natural classics!
