Win one of 5 Korol Christmas trees

Forget Irving Berlin and all those dreams of a white Christmas. Andy Cartwright Homeware’s new Korol Christmas Tree will have environmentally conscious consumers humming a greener tune this December when they put this festive, fully recycled designer tree up in their homes.

Korol is a cutting edge modular design system that uses recycled, star-shaped components or ‘building blocks’ that, when connected at their points, can form limitless functional and decorative designs for the home. Starting with homeware like clocks, bowls and lamps, Andy Cartwright Homeware has now created the Korol Christmas Tree for people looking for a tree with a difference.

The tree comes in a compact kit form – easy to assemble and portable – further lowering its carbon footprint. Even the packaging is used as part of the finished product.

Designer and company namesake, Andy Cartwright, says. “Our tree offers a unique take on Christmas. Not only is it eco-friendly, it also offers families the chance to get together and assemble the tree piece by piece, just like a puzzle, except in 3D.”

The tree comes in two sizes; the large one is 1250mm high and costs R650 while the smaller one stands 850mm high and retails at R480. Both trees are available through various online stockists such as Design Indaba, Yellow Box, and Visitors to the KZNSA Gallery in Durban or Simply Manas in Sandton City in Johannesburg will also be able to purchase one or call us direct on 0861 111 535.

Korol’s ability to transform into so many different products makes it sustainable and versatile. Using the building block approach, it is free to transform into homeware and design items that are modern, fun and inspiring.

“Our new tree is yet another example of how adaptable the Korol design system is,” said Cartwright.
