Designers S. Lukas Mack and Kurt Jacob Miller have cultivated a specialty in elegant and practical interiors. Their Jacob Lukas Design atelier was built on the shared belief that your home should be a comfortable place that reflects your own personal style. An extensive knowledge of design history, as well as degrees in design and marketing, allow this duo to design for clients and projects with a variety of tastes and aesthetics. They pride themselves on creating a stress-free design process that their clients will truly enjoy.
What sets you apart from your competition? In addition to our friendly personalities, we have fantastic industry connections, and a plethora of artisans—both local and international—that we collaborate with on a variety of designs from contemporary to highly traditional. We also pride ourselves on having a transparent billing process. We charge a flat-fee for our design, accompanied by clear costs on materials and services for each project.
Best thing about 2020 was? We not only survived, but we thrived. We completed projects around the country including fabulous designs in Arizona, Chicago, and Florida.
Past trends you’d like to see return? A return to loving your own home and creating a space that is unique to you.
Best advice you’ve given? Sometimes things don’t happen for a good reason; sometimes it isn’t meant to be. Be fearless; there are no rules. Don’t consider resale when picking things out; buy what you love.
Favorite mantra? It’s not the match; it’s the mix!
Most looking forward to in 2021? Further furniture collaborations and the upcoming restoration of a 1920 historic waterfront cottage in Michigan.
