The New Green


I was at one of my favorite stores Anthropologie over the weekend. This wooden tree was part of their Christmas display. Talk about a new way to think Green, you can now recycle something into your next tree. What do you think thumbs up or thumbs down?

This reminds me of Droog Design!
Cool!

original et très écologique dans l'idée, même si cela fait plus penser a une hutte d'indien qu'a un arbre de noel ;)

Allison said...

Honestly (and you've seen how traditional I can be!) I say thumbs up! I like the different shade soft green and brown - and the shape is minimalistic, devoid of the traditional trappings of the season. Splendid!

Luis Gomez said...

Very interesting. I like it a lot!

Cezar and Léia said...

Randy, this one is a bit "over the top," I think. It will take me a little while to get used to this one. It certainly is different!!

Michael Rowland said...

i really like this tree, it shows that someone has an imagination that's turned on, happy holidays Randy,,,M

Lúcia said...

Very interesting idea, I like non traditional trees too.
It works for a window, it's different from what people expect.
Have a good day!

I like it. I love it when people come up with unique ways to represent age old traditions.

This reminds me of the year our mom tried to foist off an artistically-shaped piece of driftwood hung with three glass balls as our modern-style Christmas tree, straight from the pages of Sunset Magazine.

Us kids staged a revolt, pooled our allowances, and bought a little leftover Charlie Brown-type tree at the local lot.

Thumbs up. Cool idea. I saw a tree made out of tumble weeds on another blog. Though I probably would prefer to have the real thing!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Creative, and I like it... definitely a thumbs up! Do I want to give up my tree for this? definitely not...

Jarart said...

I would never have thought of using scrap wood to make a tree. I guess you can use it in the fireplace after the holiday.

I like that tree! It looks pretty cool. Nice shot as well!

Johnny said...

Jack said...

Gee, I feel like a grinch. Everyone else seems to be thumbs up. I agree that it is clever, but do I love it? Nah. Would I want it in my house? Nah.

RedPat said...

I am on the thumbs up side big time. I love this tree!

marty said...

JM said...

Up, of course! Love the idea.

raskolniikov said...

anything is better than cutting down a real tree, so thumbs up from me.

Greenhorn said...

Two thumbs up! I want one next year! No needles all over the rug, no watering...although it might be a bear tying it onto the roof of the car!

1ondoncalling said...

Yes, definitely.
Green is the new black. ;)

bfarr said...

Good, I saw one made out of green painted milk cartons - I think the green thing may be catching on.

I applaud their creativity - but it looks more like a bonfire than a tree to me! Oh dear.
