buro tree

Christmas brings out the extremes in me. I love visiting my family, eating pudding with custard and watching my nephews play with their new toys. But this merry time of year also makes me cringe. For some reason I hate tinsel. Can't stand the sight of it! I can't explain why, but I find it so gawdy, ugly and basically pointless. These Buro trees are perfect. Simple, stylish and they have been designed and made with a far smaller ecological footprint than your usual pine tree (covered in shiny plastic crap).
