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.
From custom tile layouts and hand selected character pieces each home we design is brought to life through our signature LUCIEN PORTER DESIGN CO. process.
We take home design one step further by focusing on the unique client vision and making the details luxurious and timeless.
