Modern Christmas Trees on Shark Tank

The Modern Christmas Tree is bound to be a new holiday tradition for families far and wide.

Modern Christmas Trees® founder Matt Bliss landed a deal on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank with Barbara Corcoran on Sunday, December 3, 2017 at 9PM EST. 

“Matt has an unmatched passion for his business and the holidays – I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with him. The Modern Christmas Tree is bound to be a new holiday tradition for families far and wide,” said Corcoran.

Bliss presented to Corcoran, Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, and Kevin O’ Leary his new spin on the traditional holiday tree. Modern Christmas Trees® eliminate the hassle of pine needles from a real tree and the bulky assembly and storage of artificial trees.

"The Shark Tank experience was amazing! I'm so happy to share my Grandpa's story on such a large, global stage,” Bliss says. “It’s truly a blessing that Barbara saw the vision too, and we reached a deal.”

Bliss’ patented product collapses and stores flat and illuminates a room with its LED light that casts shadows off the concentric rings of the tree. The tree’s design originally comes from Bliss’ engineer and architect grandfather Lawrence "Bud" Stoecker who created the tree for his family in the 1960's.

Since its release to the world, Modern Christmas Trees have been displayed on every continent, in homes and businesses from Disneyland, Google, Red Bull, Renaissance Hotels, Four Seasons, and many more.

Each Modern Christmas Tree is constructed of durable and lightweight acrylic. The tree is offered in five color choices (Red, Green, Clear, White, and Blue) and available in three different sizes (7.5’, a Wall tree, and a Table top tree). Tree add ons include ornaments, crystals, a rotating mirror ball, a tree stand, skirt, Sputnik tree topper, and storage cases. In addition, the tree is sold undecorated for $399, and allows customers to display family ornament collections.
