In years past, decorator Richard Keith Langham has hosted his usual holiday dinner for eight at his Manhattan design studio and showroom.

To keep the focus on the rustic charm and original woodwork of his 19th-century farmhouse in New York, designer Shawn Henderson kept holiday decorating to a minimum by dressing up his delicate tree with dried citrus and simple glass bulbs. The clean lines of vintage Scandinavian furniture and abstract photography by Andrew Sovjani stay within Henderson’s minimalist theme.

Funfact: The origin of Christmas Tree

Long before the advent of Christianity, plants and trees that remained green all year had a special meaning for people in the winter. Just as people today decorate their homes during the festive season with pine, spruce, and fir trees, ancient peoples hung evergreen boughs over their doors and windows. In many countries it was believed that evergreens would keep away witches, ghosts, evil spirits, and illness.
