Thankfully, we've found some great modern alternatives to the classic Christmas tree that contemporary design lovers will adore.

These architecturally stunning trees range from grand metal structures to feather tabletop wonders, but none skimp on the holiday cheer. Here are 27 modern Christmas trees that are big on festivity but without the hassle.
