LUMA Design Workshop is a design/build furniture company based in Seattle, founded in 2013 by husband-and-wife custom fabrication duo, Nicholas and Jessica Mayer, and the Lucas interior design firm; also family owned and operated. LUMA represents a modern and simply sophisticated collection of furniture. These subtle statement pieces are bold yet modest to complement and enhance a wide range of environments.
The LUMA collection embodies an open and ongoing dialogue between modern design, and traditional craftsmanship, refined materials, and artistic finishes. Every piece LUMA creates stands on its own as a declaration to the LUMA philosophy, simplicity is sophistication.
LUMA believes furniture design does not need to be complicated, it just needs to be done well.

The collections are handmade by Seattle craftspeople using locally sourced materials, wood, metal, glass, stone. LUMA offers a wealth of earthly materials born from a lifetime of experience and exploration in the custom design trades.

reflecting simplicity at its best
The collections, including Strap, the original that started it all, followed by Silo, Float, Block, Flip, Bend, and Geo. Each are named after the dictionary definitions of their main design element, reflecting the brand’s core element of simplicity.
In the Strap collection, a strap literally runs through the clean, modern pieces. In the Flip collection, fabricated L-shapes flip in new directions creating new ways to interpret shapes.
Every detail matters and the details are subtle yet sophisticated.
evolution of the brand
LUMA’s line of high-quality furniture evolved out of the close artistic collaboration between Jessica and Nicholas Mayer of Mayer Designs Inc. and interior design firm Lucas, Inc., led by David and Suzie Lucas. Based on their collective passion for creating custom furniture, and the perfect blend of talent and creativity, LUMA was founded.
The name LUMA, combines the letters of the founders last names Lucas, Inc. and Mayer Designs, Inc. LUMA represents the consequential connection between thoughtful, modern design and accomplished craftsmanship.
