If you don't know Jeff Leatham by name, you're probably well acquainted with his work. That's because he's been the artistic director for the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris, where the abundant floral lobby displays are famous among travelers from around the world. (Take a look at your Instagram feed. Scroll through the posh travel types you follow. Keep scrolling... et voila: There are those George V flowers!)
Well, hotshot Leatham is coming back to the U.S.... and that's good news for fans of his work.
He's coming back to join the team at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, where his career began. (And where Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles agent Josh Flagg recently lived!)
Leatham's signature floral installations will now deck the lobby of the hotel — a popular spot for sealing deals and for posh Hollywood parties — and he'll also set up his first floral boutique inside the property.
This is a pretty big deal for brides and grooms, who can now have the world's most famous florist create insane looks for their weddings. Yes, you can host nuptials dripping in blooms from a man whose work was also displayed as part of a historic installation at the Palace of Versailles. (You may recall that modest little venue as the site of the wedding rehearsal for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West!)
NBD, but the French government also bestowed on Leatham one of its most distinguished titles: Chevalier in the Order of Arts and Letters, for his contribution to Parisian culture.
How's that for bridal bragging rights?
