Bid adieu to your monochrome lounge – the green couch is having a well-deserved moment

Green couch inspiration

We'll be the first to admit, there's nothing quite as everlasting as a neutral-toned couch. Trend-defying, versatile and often low maintenance, they tick all the boxes. In saying that, our eye has certainly been wandering towards more radical couch inspiration recently, with the statement green couch that's taking Instagram by storm, our top pick.

There's no denying that green is undisputedly the hue of the moment; particularly in the world of interiors. As more of our go-to design trailblazers experiment with injecting colour tastefully in their homes, it seems that the living room is receiving the most attention. When chosen carefully, a statement couch has the power to create interest and draw attention to a space, while simultaneously uniting the various features that surround it.

While there's certainly nothing wrong with embracing interior trends, there's more to the allure of a green couch than meets the eye. The colour green has been proven to be a stress-reducing shade, perpetuating feelings of harmony, balance and refreshment. Due to its centre place on the colour spectrum, our eyes require no adjustment when they come into contact with green objects; reinforcing the benefit of making a statement couch in this shade a pivotal piece in your humble abode.

With its colour roots deeply ingrained in nature, a green couch is also an excellent way to bring a touch of the outdoors into your home. Particularly if your space does not accomodate the indoor plant nursery of your dreams, (which, let's be honest, is a reality for many of us), let a forest-green lounge do the talking instead.

The main draw factor of the green couch is its variety of gorgeous hues, which is ideal for unlimited inspiration and choice. If you prefer a more pastel, subtle shade, look to Emrata's now Instagram famous C-curve (complete with enviable wall art and adorable pup, Colombo). Or if you're convinced that you're prepared to go all out, embrace the trend with a luxurious, upholstered, velvet-olive green or emerald lounge. Wherever your commitment lies, let our selection of green-couch goodness serve as the ultimate inspiration.
