Coveted: Green Velvet Sofa

I have to confess that I'm not much of a redecoration-fiend. Aside from a couple changes here and there, our apartment has been much the same since we first moved in four years ago. But I do have a sudden lust for a new sofa. And not just any sofa...but an elegant green, velvet sofa (a sofabed would be even better). Here are a few inspirations:

Too small, but the color and pillows are nice. Source.

I was just in a place of worship that had redecorated and had a few green velvet sofas in a waiting area. I was smitten!

oh yes, green couch envy ......... mmm, me too.
did you see the green couch that Amanda Soule's hubby gave her for Christmas? http://www.soulemama.com/soulemama/2008/12/under-my-tree.html
She had been wanting one too, and he found it for her. So sweet. So nice and green.
