Modern Electric Tree Lights
Growing up with one Jewish parent, and one Christian parent I was one of the lucky children who celebrated both Christmas and Hanukkah. Of course, as I got older, this thrill waned as my parents started combining presents and given that my birthday falls on New Years Day - presents were consolidated even more.
The Christmas tree was another tradition that fell by the wayside as I got older. Sad times! I've been living on my own for a few years now and I still haven't bothered to set up my own Christmas tree. This cool modern electric tree from designers Wan-jin Joo, and Hyun-Joung Yoo is giving me new hope, though! The Abre light up tree is made up of branches made from recycled plastic and featuring white LED lights all throughout each branch. A modular lighting system, create whatever shape you like by interlocking the branches together.
While not easy to decorate, this is a great mess-free, eco-friendly Christmas tree alternative! Since Abre is all white, add a twinkle of color by draping some LED Christmas lights around the branches? On second thought, maybe that's not such a hot idea. I don't know if I'd want to put on sun glasses every time I step into the living room. Oh well! Lights out until next time! - Via Yanko Design
