For those seeking a more modern Christmas tree look, the simplicity of the Gold Leaf Bauble wins. The glass ornament's lower half has been carefully flecked with gold leaf as if it is dripping liquid gold. There's no question it will add an elegant air to your tree.
The Wire Flower Tree Topper offers a delicate option for the apex of a Christmas tree with a unique design that gives the appearance of a golden star. The three-dimensional piece is fully coated in glitter which makes it ideal for entryway trees which are seen from all angles.
The modernist's answer to Christmas tree decorating, the Half Matte Green Bauble offers a unique interpretation of Christmas. The design, which is more concerned with incredible texture dynamics than tradition, comprises a teal bauble with a mossy green flocked base. Its simple, angled division is Christmas minimalism all over.

Thoughtfully hung Christmas ornament sets make your tree decorating seem cohesive and well thought out. This Set of 3 Cream Baubles offers three complementary but unique shapes—the classic round, the elongated teardrop and the onion shape. Each of the set's ornaments are enhanced by a glittered, beaded band.
Honoring Celtic design, the Linen Heart Decoration by Irish designer Katie Larmour reinvents traditional decor for a modern audience with its neutral palette and simple form. The braided border nods to the incredibly intricate knotwork of Celtic style and conveys the message of eternity, whether in loyalty, friendship or love.
The Acorn Cluster Ornament features a unique waterfall formation which will cascade down your tree and will complement more traditional bauble shapes. (We imagine this paired with a set of round ivory ornaments.) The individual acorns are made from glass and are topped with gold glitter and pearlescent beads.
