When you have a green couch, there are a lot of different avenues you can go with area rugs. Whether you’re thinking of choosing a solid print rug in a complementary color or a styled print with an interesting design, there’s plenty of ways you can go.
Join us on this fun journey as we explore some different options you have on rugs that go with a green couch. This list of 14 ideas will demonstrate the creative freedom you’ve got for picking a rug to match a green couch.
The exact shade of your green couch can affect which colors will work. For example, a hunter-green couch would work with different color combinations than a green that’s olive or lemon-lime.
Over the Moon for Oriental
Oriental style rugs are one of the most go-to looks due to the intricate scrollwork and color use. These rugs work with most colors and furniture styles, including green couches.
The classic look of a bright-colored Oriental rug in bold shades of orange, red, and blue with light shades of white and cream in an intricate border can look incredible with a green sofa.
Simple Solid Shag in Charcoal
If your living space contains a lot of greenery, like natural or artificial plants, along with a green couch in more of a khaki color, you can create a cozy environment by going with a shag.
Shag rugs – like this solid print in a rich charcoal gray – have a high pile, which provides a comfy spot under your feet and a charming yet simple aesthetic for your room.
Tasseled Boho Pattern in Nude Neutrals
Emerald green couches require a light touch when choosing colors for your area rug. Due to the boldness of the shade, you’ll want to go light and simple with your design.
Check out the look you can get by choosing an area rug in a simple Boho design with tasseled ends. The neutral, understated palette of gray, beige, white, and black in this rug help tone down the richness of the incredible green.
Blotted in Blue Abstract

This braided area rug in 100% jute gives your floor a comfy thick texture that is the perfect look for farmhouse, nautical, or casual themed spaces. And the dark gray color in ½” thick flatweave pile with tasseled ends is the perfect color against green sofas.

You can use this rug style for pops of color that are perfect for blending with accents around the room. And picking a rug with blue, green, gray, and white will perfectly match a teal sofa.

To tie the entire look of contrasting shades together, pick an area rug in a hodge-podge of bold colors in a funky pattern.
Pick a Pattern in Black and White Stripes

You can make your space look updated and inviting by blending the modern look of a green sofa with the classic appeal of a rug in a striped white and black pattern.

For rattan woven patio furniture in a dark grayish-green shade, a geo print area rug in a simple transitional pattern makes the perfect combination.
Tap into a Traditional Design for Funky Retro Feel
