Jeff Leatham, Artistic Director of the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris, has superbly transformed the hotel’s lobby and courtyard for the Holiday seasons.

Even Oprah Winfrey visited to admire the beautiful Holiday installation, exclaiming on her Instagram, “Stopped in Paris to break up that loooong trip from S.Africa. Love this tree of lights at the George V. Hotel.”

Inside the lobby of the hotel, Jeff worked with Michel Amann of Crystal Group to create giant ‘Sexy Golden Reindeer.’

“Reindeer like you have never seen before …. I hereby give you …. Gold – Sexy – Chic -,” Jeff posted on his Facebook page. Each reindeer is made from over 1,300 pieces of gold mirror, stands over 13 feet and high and weighs 1,100 lbs.

Outside in the hotel’s courtyard, it’s a fantastical scene of over 30 live Christmas trees with a gleeming gold electric light sculpture in the center. Hundreds of electric cables with gold bulbs form this chic lighting sculpture made by Jeff and Michel.
