The Gresham Palota is a recently restored Art-Deco masterpiece. It was originally built and owned by the Gresham Insurance Company in London and was concieved as an arcade for shops with luxury apartments above. It was heavily bombed during WWII but in recent years has been bought and restored by The Four Seasons Hotel chain. They have tried to remain true to the original Art-Deco features however, there are some modern touches like this beautiful chandelier which is comprised of several pieces of twisted, hand-blown glass. It looks like a giant ball of flames floating over the recption desk. Stunning.
