This modern nativity set comes with a stylized stable and two oversized trees. The set is crafted from durable ceramic. Each piece has white LED lights that shine through star-shaped cutouts. The creche measures 5” long by 5” wide and is 2.5” deep. 

Designer Advice

This modern nativity set will fit right in if you are creating an all-white Christmas decor scheme. Place the set on a wood mantle or tuck it among your books on a wooden bookshelf. Curate white decorations with a flocked Christmas tree and add greenery to provide a little color contrast. Use the timer to automatically turn its lights on and off.

Description

Made from Nambé alloy, the three figures of Jesus, Mary and Joseph are set in a gothic-arched wooden stable. Hand wash the high-quality nativity set figures with soap and water; use only polish recommended for alloy metals. The entire set is 9.5” long by 4.5” wide by 11.5” high.

Designer Advice

Highly stylized, this is the most modern of these six nativity sets. Finished in high gloss silver, the set would look its best set on a glass tabletop or a mirrored tray. Expand the collection with three wise men, an angel, a shepherd, a camel, a donkey, and a sheep. Decorate your Christmas dining table with three of these charming vignettes. 

Modern Free Standing Nativity Set

Modern Free Standing Nativity Set

Description

Each of the 11 pieces in this modern nativity set is hand-cut and either stained or wash-painted by the artist. The standard color options include shades of brown with a white wash finish or a set with individually colored robes. Custom color finishes are also available.

Designer Advice

We love how this nativity set is made with separate, free-standing pieces. This lets you arrange the set on different elevations. Place the shepherd with his three sheep on a stack of antique books to mimic the feel of a hillside overlooking the stable where Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and the donkey are. Position the three wise men away from the stable as “coming from a far country.”

Modern Cherry Wood Nativity Set

Modern Cherry Wood Nativity Set

Description

This small modern nativity set is cut from cherry wood planks. The pieces fit together like a puzzle and stand on a 4” by 2.5” base to create a three-dimensional item. Each set has a unique graining, so no two sets are alike. 

Designer Advice

The full height of this beautiful nativity set is only 4.5”, and it measures 8” wide. You can place the set in the smallest spaces to add a touch of Christmas - on its own on the bathroom counter or as part of a larger vignette in other parts of the house. The impact of this piece will be diminished if it’s left to float in the middle of open space.

Modern Nesting Nativity Set
