Dreaming of a Pugh Christmas

Gareth Pugh has designed a Christmas Tree for the Westfield and Oxford Street Topshop stores, the tree is 2.8 metres tall featuring 60 neon tubes.

He says:

This neon tree is my interpretation of the traditional Christmas tree shape, putting a super-slick and modern edge to it," the designer explains. "Neon was an obvious choice for me, linking it both to the aesthetic of the Mo√ęt & Chandon room I designed at London Fashion Week in September, and the set of my debut show in Paris for spring/summer 2009."
"I think the simple melding of tradition and modernity aptly suits the mood at the moment; we are all looking to a brighter future."

I wonder if he'll make a small one for my living room...
