Tabletop trees bring holiday flair to small living rooms, console tables, kids' rooms … really any space in the home. I'm particularly fond of wooden versions. Whether decorated or left unadorned, they can be a lovely (and often more environmentally-friendly) alternative to live, cut, or artificial trees. Here are 12 of my favorite wooden tabletop trees. In many cases, their modern shapes and neutral colors extend their appeal beyond the holidays, too.
I gasped the first time I saw Büro North's Frigg, Rindd, and Gryder trees. Not only are they incredibly stylish, but they're also sustainably designed and produced in Melbourne, Australia.
