Last year, it seemed that the statement sofa for the home was a chalky pink velvet design. Millennial Pink, as we all know, was the hot hue for 2017 but has it been bumped in favour of a new shade? Let’s take a look at the rise and rise of the dark green velvet sofa.

Forget Pantone’s putrid purple colour that they announced this year and keep clutching on to Greenery, the Colour of the Year 2017. Yes, the leafy green shade may not be for everyone but it’s certainly sneaked into our lives, perhaps without us realising. Whether it’s the rise of detoxing green juices, adding botanicals to every nook and cranny or through upholstery, it’s clear to see that it’s had an effect. And it doesn’t matter if it’s that exact colour, darker shades of emerald and forest green are perfect for those who opt for a darker interior.

Enter the statement green sofa. Velvet, naturally, is a perfect fabric fit and it seems that this could be the sofa to over take those dusky pink hues we saw before. Now, if you haven’t spotted it yet, scroll back up and see what connects Nicola, Hilary & Flo, James and Marlie’s Instagram posts. Not only does dark green look like the hot colour for 2018 but that sofa looks as though it’s a fan favourite. Whether you want to nab it too or fancy a different style, here’s a round-up of some great one’s currently on the market.

It’s all making us green with envy if we’re quite honest!
