ith a client list including Tina Turner, Nadja Swarovski, Oprah Winfrey, Dolly Parton, the Dalai Lama and Cher, celebrity florist Jeff Leatham is one of the most sought after
floral designers in the world, his breathtaking works pushing the natural medium he works with to dizzying heights.
Leatham began his career at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills in 1994 where he maintains a design studio, as he does at the Four Seasons Philadelphia while also serving as the artistic director of the Four Seasons Georges V Hotel in Paris where his lobby installations dazzle.
Leatham’s contribution to French culture earned him a knighthood from the French government, the prestigious Chevalier de L'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. He has collaborated with luxury brands including Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Balenciaga, Bulgari, and Swarovski, and has published three splendid books.
One recent exhibit, “Kaleidoscope,” at the New York Botanical Garden’s Orchid Show drew rave reviews. Leatham’s style brings a bit of rock and roll and out of the box thinking to his profession, incorporating sculpture and other design elements, continually pushing boundaries of tradition with stunningly gorgeous results.
