Branch by Demelza Hill, a designer based in London, England, is a Christmas tree for the true minimalist. Forgoing an authentic tree full of a fresh pine scent or even a fake tree trying to mimic a real one, this creation is much more Charlie Brown-esque. Of course, it is also much more bare-boned.
As though straddling the line between being traditional and nontraditional, Branch by Demelza Hill is pretty playful. Produced in England and made out of sustainably sourced ash wood, the five feet tall tree fits nicely into a cotton duffle bag when not in use. Easy to assemble and disassemble, Hill writes that "it provides a contemporary solid decoration without any mess."
Perfect as a gift to oneself or a friend, Branch by Demelza Hill offers a different way to celebrate the holiday.
