designwerkstatt Scandinavian Christmas trees

Eager to wipe the cobwebs off aged traditions? These plywood trees provide the perfect solution. Easy to set up (and pack away) they're a modern alternative to your traditional Christmas tree. Designwerkstatt's Christmas trees bring you Scandinavian simplicity with an African edge. The abstract plywood trees are dressed in Christmas decorations ranging in design from shwe shwe printed hearts to transparent perspex silhouettes. The trees can be customised to fit any size requirements and are ideal for table centre pieces or as stand-alone features to guard over ribboned boxes. The best part is that their flat pack systems make for easy storage and packing away, avoiding the dreaded after-Christmas dismantle. The large tree birch plywood retails at R450, perspex decorations sell for R75 and shwe shwe decorations for R55 (both for a set of 5). The products can be ordered directly from
