About

Julefod - the Danish designed Xmas tree stand, made in Denmark. 

Henrik and JP started a Danish design company of the name Ikon North.

Our mission is to bring beautifully designed, highly functional & extraordinary products to market. All of our products will be built to last and made in Denmark.

The Julefod was chosen as a Kickstarter STAFF PICK!

What is a Julefod?   

The Julefod is Danish slang for Xmas tree stand. It’s short for the Danish word "Juletræsfod" which literally means a Xmas tree foot. In Denmark, the Juletræ (xmas tree) is steeped in history and traditions. It's place in the home is so important that most families continue to honour their tree and their Christmas eve with actual live candles burning on the tree to create a mystical and magical moment of family togetherness and love. Ikon North's Julefod was given the ultimate care in design and materials to create what we feel is the best Christmas tree stand on the market. Make your Christmas experience special from top to toe or as we say "fod"... ;)

Technical specifications:

+ Base measures 95x95 mm (3.75'') which will typically hold up to a 2.5 meter (8 foot) tree without any adjustments or cuts made to the tree’s stem.

+ The base uses 4 stabilizing screws that will hold your tree upright in an adjustable 2 angle grip.

+ The base is made out of stainless steel and is waterproof to enable watering trees that are maintained indoors over longer periods.

+ The feet are all natural hard woods found in the Nordic region, Ash, Oak, Cherry and Walnut – They can be ordered with an oil finish or raw.

+ The Julefod weighs just over 2 kilos (4 1/2 pounds) and the combination of stainless steel and hard wood is designed for ultimate stability to keep your tree standing under all circumstances including pets and children.

+ The Julefod (Xmas tree stand) can be packed down after Xmas quickly and easily. Simply place all four feet and screws into the base and lay them all back into the box. The packing box measures 29x12x12cm (11.4" x 4.7") so once you have packed down the Julefod, it is conveniently small enough to be included in the average family's box of Christmas ornaments and lights.Unlike most stands on the market today that are so bulky that they get placed in all kinds of odd locations as they don't fit in any box, you'll always be able to find your Julefod each year once you find your good old box of ornaments.

Thank you...

Thank you for backing Ikon North.

We hope you enjoy your Julefod for years to come.

Med bedste hilsner,

Risks and challenges

Our challenge this Christmas is to produce enough Julefod xmas tree stands in time for Christmas. The Julefod will be made by local Danish artisans by hand in Aarhus, Denmark. The production process, as it is not automated, will take more time and effort, but will deliver the highest possible quality. We want to be careful not to take orders beyond our capacity to deliver on time. Hence our limited production run this year.
