eco chic : christmas trees + sculptures

12.21.2009
i spotted the arbory‘s trees on 16th street, in the candy store collective‘s storefront where the owners have created a small sustainable forest.   i love the shape of the trees,  it is a fantastic graphic.   quite the opposite of last year’s glitzy metallic trees, there is a trend toward simplicity and honesty – the paper tree and the wooden tree.
the arbory : decorate yourself . . . paint, light or just leave them naked.  they can also be fabricated out of plywood
the cardboard christmas tree : small and inexpensive, these pop up trees make a great afternoon craft project
possibilitree : suspended from the ceiling, this 6 ft tree floats above the presents . . .
possibilitree : 2 or 3 ft tall tabletop sculpture
modern tanenbaum is sturdy and minimal, i love it with the white lights [via silver cocoon]
