Go For The Green… Sofa.

In the beginning of the year, I avoided writing anything about emerald green. I’m still not really into this whole ‘color of the year’ thing. But – if we’re being honest – there’s one area in which I’m completely infatuated with this rich shade…


The green sofa. I’ve been collecting images for a while now of these lovelies. I like to see how they’re styled in different environments from regal to glam to completely funky.

Incredibly chic with mostly black, white and gold, this room by Nicole Coehn is definitely amongst my favorites. A similar look, by Lilly Bunn but with a bit more whimsical vibe is also clearly winning.

I love it in a little more rustic environment…

All fun and playful in Oh Joy’s new office…

And especially paired with one of my all-time favorite rugs…


And now, for the kicker. While most of these sofas are likely 100% custom, Ikea just introduced its own version of this sought after color…

And West Elm is offering a little settee in a more mossy tone that could do the trick too. I love seeing green as a stock color!

While I’ve been apartment hunting I can’t help thinking of how fabulous either would look sitting across from my current black + white sofa. Helloooooo gorgeous. Maybe even give those Ikea feet a little gold treatment to glam it up.

Which room most speaks to your style??
