When, Los Angeles design duo, Joe Lucas and Parrish Chilcoat first met they quickly bonded over their East Coast roots. After working side by side in the design department of Michael Smith, it wasn't long before the two realized that their aesthetic, while mired in the traditional elegance one associates with the East Coast, was far from formal and stuffy but exuded the freshness of California hip, all the while staying completely elegant.
In 2005 the two opened the West Hollywood design firm, Lucas Studio. Located in Almont Yard, which was at that time the closest thing L.A. had to an design 'colony'- housing other top notch designers such as Kathryn Ireland, Nathan Turner and Peter Dunham. Within 3 years, the two expanded by opening their showroom, Harbinger. As the team's success and business flourished, they knew it was time to step things up and expand. Their newly opened Harbinger showroom now sits along, L.A.'s premier design row on La Cienega.
