Furniture Focus: Green, Glorious Green!

Furniture Focus: Green, Glorious Green!

Ah, the verdant pleasure a dash of green brings to an environment! Indoors or out, this nature-loving hue seems to calm, soothe and relax our jangled nerves through the sheer power of its presence. And the shades! Moss, mint, avocado, grass, chartreuse or lime; each has its own special ability to inspire memories, excitement or the imagination.

The eminently quotable Diana Vreeland once went so far as to suggest decorating an entire room in nothing but green! Whether you go bold or go bashful, there's no denying the impact even a speck of this leafy hue can add to a room. Try it for yourself and see. There's a reason Mother Nature has chosen to drape herself in this luscious shade: nothing brings a space to life quite like green.
