After our living room redo earlier this year, I decided to modernize our Christmas decor as well. I spent hours browsing Pinterest for modern Christmas trees and found that I kept coming back to one thing in common–a black Christmas tree. I polled you on Instagram Stories and the vote in favor of a modern black Christmas tree was overwhelming!

We ordered our black Christmas tree from Wayfair. We’ve always had positive experiences ordering from them, and they have a whole website section dedicated to black Christmas trees.¬†Ours is the 9′ version of this tree; it also comes in a 7.5′ version.

If you want a black Christmas tree, you’ll need to buy it online. I’d never seen a black tree in person before ordering ours, so I looked at some local retailers to see if I find what they look like in person, but no dice. That’s why I’m trying to include lots of photos in this post!

One of my big reasons for selecting an artificial tree is being able to reduce environmental impact. It seems that the break-even point for the environmental impact of an artificial tree to be less than that of a real tree is somewhere between 3-6 years.

However, the lights on our previous artificial pre-lit tree [which you can see in this post] stopped working in various spots after just 1-2 years. We stuck it out using the tree for 6 years, but I’m relieved to have a change this year.

After that experience, I knew I wanted our next tree to be unlit. Because the tree is black, we needed lights on a black wire. Enter these, which we also found from Wayfair. We chose the cool white light/black wire option, as the cool light helps to keep a modern look. Wayfair has a huge selection of Christmas holiday lighting, if you’re looking for a different option.

For reference, I used 7 of those light strands on this 9′ tree. You could add another strand or 2 if you prefer more lights, but anything more than that would start to look ridiculous. (However, I ordered 13 strands because that’s what the online lighting calculators told me! So, I had to return quite a few.)

Here’s a close-up of the tree and lights. The branches are a true black, which I wasn’t 100% about from the online photos. It looks super modern and sleek, which I love.
