In 2017, the Pantone color of the year is called greenery, a symbolic name for a color that’s very fresh and energetic. It’s a color meant to inspire us and to bring us closer to nature. It brings spaces to life and it has a powerful impact on the whole room, even if it’s used sparingly. There are many different ways in which to introduce a color into a space: you could paint a wall, use an area rug, an indoor green wall or potted plants but you could also use greenery furniture to transform a room into an oasis of beauty and freshness.
The slight different in color tones is almost unnoticeable in this context
This greenery sofa was introduced here by Krakvik & D’Orazio as a focal point. It stands out against the gray wall and the pastel-colored area rug and it’s beautifully coordinated with the indoor plants and other green accents strategically spread throughout the room. What’s also great is the fact that there’s actually a palette of green tones and they’re not all perfectly matched with each other.

The sofa is not the only furniture piece that can help you turn greenery into a focal point for your home. A green living room is a pretty broad concept, especially when you have an open floor plan. The products you can choose from include pretty much everything you’d put in a social area. Greenery chairs, ottomans, benches and even pendant lamps or rugs are all valid options.
