Step Aside, Green—‘Goth Trees’ Are Taking Over Christmas This Year
Dreaming of a white Christmas? Au contraire. This year, it appears that folks are actually craving quite the opposite. Meet the aptly nicknamed "goth tree".
Strung with twinkly lights, metallic ornaments and/or monochrome details, these brooding black Christmas trees bring to mind a starry winter night sky. We've been noticing a major rise in moody treescapes across Instagram and Pinterest this season; an observation further-backed by a shocking stat from our friends at Wayfair: The site reported a 70 percent lift in searches for "black Christmas tree"," versus holiday 2017.
Well, whaddaya think? We're sticklers for tradition but we must admit, they're very, very chic—if not a tad less jovial.
