Christmas is coming and it is time to decor our house to welcome holidays and friends! If you are looking for an alternative to the traditional Christmas tree, eventually even eco-friendly, we have collected 5 interesting options. They might seem even too simple, but their minimal look might turn out to be outstanding, especially when we feel to be surrounded by over-decorated locations in holiday time!

1 – A WOODEN TREE by Lovi Oy
The Lovi tree adds a Northern European touch to your Christmas. It’s hand-made in birch wood, in pure Finnish style. Easy to build and to store away. By buying these Christmas trees you’ll support Lovi’s commitment towards birch reforestation.

2. NORDIC FIR TREE by Fabulous Goose
It is modeled on the elegant Nordmann’s Fir (Abies nordmanniana) which in recent years has become the Christmas tree of choice in many Nordic homes. A Nordic minimalist interpretation designed by a talented Danish illustrator and paper artist Theresa Jessing. Its elegant shape combines style and design with the simple tactile pleasures of creating something with your hands (it is a 3D decoration in a self-assembly kit). And your Christmas tree will be hanging from the ceiling! Also available “onfoot”.

3. A CARDBOARD TREE by Handle with care
The tree is made of 100% natural recycled cardboard, painted in green with natural, non-allergic paint. This cardboard is special – it is very thick (10mm) and strong, so that the tree is stable and strong. You can easily store it in flat, without using much space. You can add decorations or electric lighting to make it more beautiful and glowing in the dark.

4. LIGHTREE by Slamp
It is a floor lamp that reminds, with its strong lines, the classic mountain pine. Thanks to its dim light, it lights up Christmas holidays with elegance, creating a special and warm atmosphere in every house. Lightree creates a perfect mix between a simple and contemporary design and the magic of Christmas. Lightree is available in green, white and red. A LED lighting creation designed and produced in Italy.
5. A STEEL ORNAMENT WITH MAGNETS by Alessi
This is another piece of Italian Design: Bark for Christmas is the ideal ornament for those who don’t want to give up on the ritual of decoration, even without the traditional Christmas tree. These magnetic decorations (in porcelain) can be customised with photographs, special wishes and more.
Enjoy your unusual contemporary Christmas decorations and best season’s greetings!
