Hey there! I’m Samantha.     



If you hang out with me long enough, you can call me Sam. 

After being in the fashion industry, I found myself on construction  sites and fell in love with all things dirt and design. I had spent my career  hunting for high-end fashion for a fraction of a price, and I quickly recognized a  gap in the residential design industry. So, I traded my Pradas for a hammer and started Lucien Porter  Design Co.  

I know you want to know where the cool name came from, right? My current  business partner was swimming in a swamp in Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina.  No, he’s not my ex-boyfriend. He’s a dog! After living through Katrina, I needed  a little light and hope. Lucien in French means “light”. Our path lead us from  NOLA to Nashville where he met his BFF Porter. And with that, I had a business  named Lucien Porter Design Co. 

Many years of fashion-savvy combined with a contractor’s license means I’m  able to use a bespoke approach to new construction, a custom home build,  renovations, and commercial build-outs.

Although I’m based in Nashville, TN, our projects can be found from the East  Coast to the West coast.
