Urban Outfitters' contemporary holiday tree is a modern take on traditional Christmas decor. While many may opt for a classic Christmas tree this holiday season, a contemporary alternative acts as a versatile decor item that can be used long after winter.

This gumball tree from Urban Outfitters resembles a classic leaf-less tree -- featuring a white, branched base that is accented with tiny, round bulbs. Though it appears bare and minimalist in its overall look, this holiday tree is given a dose of fun when turned on.

Once powered up, the tree's bulbs light up to reveal a rainbow of bright hues. While not a literal translation of a gumball machine, this festive home accessory is loosely inspired by the chewing gum spheres.
