A Timeless Festive Transformation for The Connaught

A Timeless Festive Transformation for The Connaught

20th Nov 2023

It’s that special time of year where our Contracts designers swap flowers for fir trees as they prepare to deck the halls of London’s finest venues. The season is off to a magnificent start - with The Connaught receiving a glowing overnight yuletide transformation.

The iconic Christmas tree in Chandos Place creates a flurry of festive magic before you even step foot in the iconic establishment - this year designed by esteemed artist, Rachel Whiteread. As you enter the lobby, you’ll be met with the most timeless of scenes - the majestic mahogany staircase and art deco detail offer up the perfect canvas to adorn with the most quintessentially opulent display. Naturally all eyes gravitate towards the floor-to-ceiling tree sitting proudly at the foot of the stairs - resplendent with burnished glass ornaments - its theme gracefully extending into garlands ascending along the twinkling bannisters.

Every nook and cranny of the hotel has received a festive facelift. We couldn’t think of a cosier corner for a nightcap than by the roaring hearth - the majestic fireplace adorned with a seasonal bounty swaths of fir, copper asparagus fern, thistles and eucalyptus emanating warmth and a truly enchanting ambience.
