Following their short life as a centrepiece for celebration we see our streets strewn with sad looking Christmas trees. Local artist and upcycler Dan Knight has come up with a solution for these unloved Christmas trees and turned them into beautiful free standing lamps.

As part of Islington Exhibits in partnership with Rowan Arts, Dan Knight worked with TRAID’s Visual Merchandising extraordinaire Francesco to create a beautiful display in our Holloway shop window.

Whilst retailers start gearing up for Christmas perhaps this window display may inspire you to think a little differently about a sustainable and more resourceful Christmas, so if you’re in the area do come and have a look.

Islington Exhibits at TRAID Holloway from September 26th till October 9th 2014.
