Discover All About Claridge’s Christmas Tree 2018 – There’s nothing quite like Christmas. Every year Claridge’s (marking this year it’s ninth that a designer was invited), the quintessentially British hotel invites a designer to design a new Christmas tree and this year the invited designer was the amazing Diane von Furstenberg. Von Furstenberg’s has named the Christmas tree as “Tree of Love,” and is possible to see it in the hotel lobby.
This fantastic tree, according to the Standard, is decorated with six different animals, including an owl, horse, peacock, dove and mouse. In ancient astrological traditions, those beings represent knowledge, peace, strength and beauty. The animals are silver-leafed, as are 8,000 leaves. The tree also features hand-blown glass balls in blue and 150 glass hearts.
Some of the past guests include designers like Karl Lagerfeld, John Galliano, and Dolce & Gabbana, whose themes have run the gamut from woodland fantasy to under the sea.
