Oh, I wish I could love this thing, but I just don't. I applaud the fact that Australian design firm Buro North's flatpack holiday tree (full-size tree $1,418.50, US) is 80 percent more environmentally sound than a traditional tree, based on its production process, flat shipping, and reuse factor. But shipping from Australia? I can't imagine how that's more "green" than buying a cut tree from a local tree farm. And at such a steep price, you'd have to be sure that you'll reuse this tree for the rest of your modern-design obsessed lifespan.
