Rated 5 out of 5 by from WAY better than a Dicken's village! LOVE!!! Colors more vibrant in person. Was going to hold off on displaying until after Thanksgiving but couldn't wait. Too cool! Brings back memories of going downtown during the holidays. CB2 - will you be adding any more pieces for 2014 holiday???

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern take on classic Christmas decor I purchased this set last Christmas and I love it! It brings me back to the little houses my mother used to put around our house when I was a child. This a funky, modern take on classic Christmas decor but it is still warm and cozy; definitely brings more character to my apartment during the holidays. Also love the urban take!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Gift for Special People.... I purchased the Modern Village during November when I was In NY. I used it during the holiday season and many people really liked it as it is not the traditional Christmas Village. The buildings are universal in appeal...as many people remarked that the village reminded them of neighborhoods in NY, Chicago, SF, etc. So I have been purchasing some of the villages to give as gifts next holiday season to some special friends who really liked the concept and design. The Village may not appeal to everyone but for those people who like a contemporary, stylized rendition of a neighborhood, this really hit the spot. And what the description does not mention is the images on the buildings are on both sides of the plywood - thus opening up some great creative ideas for some people. I saw the Village displayed in the Soho Store on a open room divider and it looked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Unique Village.... I first saw the Village in one of the stores in NY in November and I was intrigued by the concept. This is not the traditional Christmas village that many people have... not is it intended to be. This Village is a stylized, well designed and constructed, rendition of some of the buildings that would be in a typical urban neighborhood. I liked the fact that the buildings are all separate so that you can add some other elements ( i.e. some artificial trees) to enhance the display. This is a unique and fun way to decorate your home for the holidays. It is definitely attracts a lot of attention as I found out last Christmas....a contemporary Christmas in the City. When the holidays are over, the individual pieces can be put away in the box and stored until next year...great for people with tight closet/storage space. Kudos to the CB2 staff for coming up with such a unique and fun holiday item.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from beautiful buy impractical This is a beautifully painted and designed village set, made from laminated wood. I thought my granddaughter would love it but, when I received it, I realized that it is completely useless as a toy. The pieces range from about 5" to 10" tall, but are only about 1" thick so, while they will stand up on a very flat and level surface, they will fall down at the slightest bump or breeze. Certainly not for a child. It would be great if there were some sort of support so that these lovely pieces would stand securely. Also, this characteristic should have appeared in the description.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Nice Stylized Urban Village Last year, while recuperating from surgery, I used a concept that I saw in the CB2 holiday catalog instead of the usual Christmas tree. The concept featured silver Paz trees and topiaries on a mantle. I did purchase the silver trees and created a festive but contemporary holiday landscape with them. I was hoping that CB2 would be offering some similar items this year so that I could add them to my holiday display. In this year's holiday catalog, I did see a return of the Paz trees but also saw them displayed with the Modern Village which I thought was interesting. While in NY, I saw the Village in person at one of the stores and purchased it to add to my display. The Village is a stylized rendition of an urban neighborhood (similar to the first one that I lived in NY). The Village components are well made and designed and what I liked most ot all...they highlight Christmas in a very subtle way (there are sihouettes of tree in the various buildings). The Village added the right "pop" to last year's display. Since the colors are bright, I decided to put the different buildings on a bookcase in my home office - mixing them with some other items that I have there. I have since purchased another set to give as a gift and am now thinking of buying a few more...as many people really really liked.it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Christmas in the City.... I first saw the Village in one of the CB2 stores when I was in NY in November. I was intrigued as It reminded me of the first neighborhood where I lived in NYC, after starting my first job there after graduating from college. My apartment was a small studio in a walk-up in a building similar to the one in the Village. The neighborhood also had a couple of coffee shops, a thrift or consignment shop, a few bars, etc. Last year, I departed from setting up a traditional tree after undergoing major surgery and opted to use the Paz silver trees with some other items to create a festive but contemporary holiday display. This year, I purchased some of the clear Paz trees to add to the display. After seeing the Village displayed in the CB2 holiday catalog with the silver Paz tree,I decided to purchase one for my own home. The Village will give the holiday display a different dimension to the original display from last year. The Village is well made and depicts the buildings in a nice stylized manner. The Village may not appeal to everyone but if you like a contemporary take on Christmas, this may be for you. Since the buildings are all separate, you can actually rearrange them to fit your individual space. And when the holidays are over, the buildings will fit into the original box for easy storage.
