1) Describe your design aesthetic in a few words?
Jacob-Lukas has a design aesthetic of comfort and everyday luxury. Our interiors are layered, eclectic and have a “grand tour” approach to living with collections. Surrounding yourself with the things that bring you joy. Certainly not the match, it is the mix of furnishings that give a room it’s personality and soul.
2) What do you love about using antiques in your designs?
Antiques and collections give a room an immediate sense of history. Using antique or vintage pieces, helps to give our spaces a cozy and elegant patina. Not only do antiques lend history to a room, but they add a sense of familiarity and comfort. Living and decorating with antiques is also an ongoing education.
3) What inspires you?
Our travels, a common love of the decorative arts, architecture and history continue to inspire the interiors we create
Chicago- based designers Kurt Jacob Miller and S. Lukas Mack conceive relaxed interiors rooted in classical English and French decor. An eclectic mix of antiques and contemporary pieces give their spaces warmth and character. Operating as Jacob-Lukas Ltd., the duo draw on their experiences with the decorative arts, antiques, and interior design worlds to create timeless backdrops for today’s lifestyle.
