From Flat to Festive

When Anne Paso gets her hands on a sheet of birch wood, the result is anything but flat. The renowned Finnish industrial designer transforms birch into sculptural, origami-like creations that come to life when you assemble the pieces. Her Lovi birds, hearts and trees have a simple elegance about them. The minimalist trees retain the warm tones of the birch wood, while the birds and hearts are rendered in vibrant colors that add a bit of whimsy. You can display them all year long, or save them for the holidays (the birds and hearts are a perfect size for adorning the larger Christmas-style trees). Either way, you’ll enjoy these geometric treasures for generations. The construction is ingenious. The pieces are laser cut, then packed flat like a giant postcard so they’re easy to mail. Assembly is easy – there are no tools required. You simply pop out the pieces then slide the appropriate parts together using Lovi’s clever joint system. Half the fun is seeing the flat-packed bird or heart or tree morph into a beautiful sculpture. If you’re looking for a gift that’s sophisticated and crafty, the Lovi cards are the perfect way to engage a lucky recipient. As an added bonus, each Lovi purchase supports a tree-planting program in developing countries.

    LOVI products are a fun gift for grown ups and teenagers alike: beautiful designs and fun colors, clever flat packaging and everything made of sustainable plywood that doesn't warp over time. And if that isn't enough to make these the perfect gift for this holiday season, a portion of the tree sales goes directly towards planting trees in developing countries!

    I'm happy to be with you today and will do my best to answer any questions you may have!

    Hi Phyllis,

    There are two designs (Tree and Christmas tree) and two sizes each:

    The smaller Tree is about 26.5 inches tall and 13.5 wide and the larger one about 4ft 5inches tall and about 25 inches wide.

    The smaller Christmas tree is about 23.5 x 13.5 and the larger version about 4ft x 25 inches.

    Best of all they are packaged flat for easy storage and the assembly is really simple!

    Does that mean you get one of each size when you order one of the tree designs or are there different prices for each size?

    @Molly : Each tree is sold singly.

    If I order my tree today, and I live in Massachusetts, when will I receive it?
