Artists & Designers

Jeff Leatham (b. 1972)

Jeff Leatham began work as a floral designer at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills in 1995 and subsequently moved to Paris to continue his career as artistic director of the Four Seasons Hotel George V. In 2004, he published "Flowers by Design," a book which illustrates his approach as a floral designer. He uses shape, color, and simplicity to produce dramatic flower designs that integrate with the room rather than serve as a backdrop. Recently he has been commissioned to produce glass, textiles, and other works for Philip Treacy, Swarovski Crystal, Givenchy, Burberry, and D. Porthault. In 2006, he conceived and restyled the Luxury Ice Bar at the Four Seasons Paris.
