10 Midcentury Modern Stockings to Hang From the Fireplace This Year

Of the many holiday traditions to take part in each year, opening thoughtful and humorous stocking stuffers is always one of the best moments. You can fill stockings with silly gifts, small trinkets, or yummy treats, but the stocking itself is what stays on display in the weeks leading up to the holidays. Make the experience of discovering those little goodies all the more enjoyable by upgrading to a stocking you'll be proud to display all season long. While we love traditional décor, if you're looking for a chic alternative, you may want to seek out a few midcentury modern stockings this year.

Think white fringe pieces, sturdy leather stockings, or even an abstract design. No matter your style, there's a modern stocking fit for your home that will feel just as festive as a traditional one.

We can't get enough of this embroidered stocking. The floral design will bring a pop of spring to the dreary winter weather.

If you don't want to wreck your mantle by securing your stockings with a hammer and nail, try using a stocking holder instead. We love the look of a muted metallic holder, which adds a charming touch of glamour.
