I have a dark green sofa. The wall is a tan color. The floor is light hardwood. What color of area rug would or should I choose?

Tan and the wood tones are neutral colors and a lot of people consider green to be a neutral too. Any color you want would work.
Something with a mix of burgundy and black with a touch of purple would be nice. A tan and black rug would be another good option.
Let the rug reflect your personality. Choose a nice woven rug that incorporates the 2 neutrals with a least one more accent color that you love. Let that accent color repeat in the room at least 3 times in a significant way. Throw pillows, vases, drapery, candles, etc. Hope this is helpful.
I think earthy brown, rust, and tan ( picking up from your wall color) in a block pattern or Oriental type throw rug if you're traditional or transitional might be nice; the same colors in a braided rug if you're country or shabby chic. I'd definitely go with something patterned on the floor and maybe a few throw pillows on the couch in similar colors, a couple of solids and a couple of patterned. Mixing the pillow patterns as different from the rug pattern if you decide to try that will work as long as they're in the same or complementary color family.
