Christmas Trees to Spread Cheer in 2020

Here’s a tree you can’t ignore.

It’s inspired by the Art Nouveau movement of the 1920s.

Cougars, peacocks, and black swans decorate the golden branches at the high-end British department store John Lewis.

Jason Billings-Cray said: “I think this is quite a contemporary look and very glam. So you’re finding lots of modern apartments can suit this tree really well. But I think it would suit anyone who’s after this luxury look for Christmas.”

They also have a Renaissance-inspired tree, an Art of Japan tree, and an impressionist tree.

Down the road at another department store, Selfridges has a more colorful and eclectic design.

The concept here is to add decorations that represent something more personal to the owner—like bottles of tomato sauce.

And the idea of placing larger items throughout the tree is very popular in 2020. This one features iguanas and zebras in Christmas hats.

Jessica Hurrell said: “People are going to really go for it this year. I think there are so many events that have been canceled and that we haven’t been able to celebrate. And this is kind of the end of the year, that’s a big thing, everybody is glad to see the back of 2020.”

Owning a trendy tree doesn’t come cheap.

Each decoration costs between $8 and $16. Putting together one of these stylish trees could cost well over 1,000 dollars.

A beautifully decorated tree in the home should help spread Christmas cheer this year—and provide some normality in difficult times.
