The Conran Shop’s windows are now looking suitably seasonal, with colourful design products placed in a landscape of white wooden Christmas trees and a carpet of ceramic mushrooms…

The wooden trees (there are over 300 between the two Conran Shops in London’s Chelsea and Marylebone) were all hand made from recycled wooden pallets by the Hastings and Bexhill Wood Recycling Project. They vary in size but many are for sale, costing between £15 to £200 – with 50% of money raised going back to the Sussex based recycling project which looks to recycle unwanted wood, and offer training and job opportunities to long-term unemployed.

There’s also a making-of film on YouTube too: youtube.com
