2. Pick a green sofa for under £500

Doing up a living room on a budget? You don't have to fork out a load of money for a green sofa. The Rupert sofa from Dunelm comes in at under £500 and is beaut. It's velvet (of course), has a lovely vintage-style shape and has cute gold wheels if you like to shift your living room layout around a lot. Find more great sofas under £500 in our guide.

3. Go for an olive green sofa for a subtle look

Olive green is everywhere in interiors at the moment. Possibly the bravest shade of green out there, olive is ideal if you just want to add a touch of colour to your living room. With its sleek curved arms and button back, we love the classic appeal of the Otley sofa from Marks and Spencer

If you love how all the different shades of green have been used in this living you are definitely going to want to check out these green living room design ideas

4. Go for a sage coloured sofa in a north facing living room

Would you look at that? A sofa that isn't velvet has made it into out round up of the best green sofas! Proving that not all green sofas need to be velvet to look cool is this Frankie sofa from Marks and Spencer. Its relaxed, loose cover design blends style with practicality making it ideal for families. The light shade would work perfectly in a north facing living room to give the space a bright, fresh feel.

5. Get that boho look with a rattan green sofa

Before you start on this sofa not being green, we think you will find it's actually khaki and we love it! The design of the Delphes sofa from Maisons du Monde is really unusual, with a light-coloured wooden frame and a rattan back; there's also a built-in side table (which sounds hideous but actually looks really cool).

6. Lime green sofa? Yes, it can work 

Definitely a colour we would normally shy away from, we reckon in a nice simple setting, a lime green sofa could work. 

We love the classic shape of the Sloucher sofa from Loaf, definitely the kind of sofa you will just sink into and never leave. It does come in a lot of other colours if you are thinking this vibrant shade might be a little too brave for you.

7. Pick a small green sofa if space is tight

Small living room? No problem. There are tons of compact designs out there meaning you can still invest in a snazzy green sofa. One of our favourites is the Perrian sofa from Swoon. Size clearly doesn't hold this sofa back: its sharply angled arms and winged back make a big statement, and yet this sofa is just 122cm wide!

9. Moody interior? Get a dark green sofa

If you love the idea of the dark and atmospheric interiors trend but can't face the prospect of losing the light and bright feel that accompanies white walls, consider investing in a statement piece of furniture that will allow you to channel the trend, without transforming your entire space.

This Milano Chesterfield Green Plush 3 Seater Sofa from Oak Furniture Superstore works perfectly as part of an otherwise white scheme. 

Our dark and atmospheric decorating ideas provide more inspiration for working the trend into your home.

10. Pair a green sofa with on-trend, geometric accessories

While it's certainly easier to style a grey, white or black sofa, don't be put off green out of a fear that you won't know what to pair it with.

An easy tip is to seek out accessories that have a hint of the same shade, as subtle as that is. Geometric prints are an on-trend option that would work well with a green sofa if they're of a similar hue.

Find the Hendricks Sofa at Habitat. They have a great range of geometric cushions, too, if you're looking for something similar.
