The Modern Christmas Tree

We are delighted to introduce The Modern Christmas Tree to our store. It truly is the most beautiful Christmas Tree in the world.

Originating in the 1960s, Matt Bliss’ grandfather, an engineer, and an architect known as Lawrence “Bud” Stoecker designed the first Modern Christmas Tree.

In 2011, Matthew Bliss re-created his grandfather’s design of The Modern Christmas Tree.

History

Bud loved to build A-Frame modern style homes, making The Modern Christmas Tree a natural fit for him. Over the years the tree’s design was refined, moving from cardboard, to Masonite, to Plexiglas.

Since then, the tree has been photographed in some of the most important Mid-Century Modern Homes in the United States, including the Stahl House in Los Angeles designed by Pierre Koenig. The list also includes the Sculptured House designed by Charles Deaton, later coined the Sleeper House and the iconic Farnsworth House by Mies Van Der Rohe.

We are excited to be considering iconic Australian Architecture to photograph The Modern Christmas Tree.
