About Modern Christmas Trees

The Modern Christmas Tree, was originally invented by engineer and designer Lawrence “Bud” Stoecker in the mid-1960’s. The contemporary holiday tree is made of concentric acrylic rings, decorated with chandelier crystals and ornaments. The tree hangs from the ceiling and is illuminated by a spot light from underneath the tree, projecting shadows and reflections throughout the room. The tree and this Stoecker family tradition are carried on by Bud’s grandson Matt Bliss who patented the design in 2012.

Stoecker suffered from Alzheimer’s and sadly passed away a week before the patent was issued. Weeks later members of the Stoecker family celebrated his life at an exhibition of his trees at the original Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim California. The exhibit continues to be a part of Disney’s annual holiday festivities. Bliss, a modern design and architecture enthusiast from Colorado, makes the trees available to people throughout the world at donating a portion of the proceeds the Alzheimer’s Association in his Grandpa’s name.
