led to this!

Nantucket Red doors painted in a custom Lucas Studio color for Portola Paints look sharp! A custom sized zinc Cosy pendant in a red powder coat finish was designed by Michael Amato for Urban Electric (it launches early January 2012) hangs above the front doors.

Joe Lucas and Parrish Chilcoat are design partners in Lucas Studio and Harbinger, their home furnishings and accessories store. They outgrew their charming Almont Yard digs and have migrated nearby to a new home, at 752 N. La Cienega Blvd. in West Hollywood. Here is peek at their shop, a true destination for interior designers, gift seekers and stylish and savvy. A well-edited mix of antique and vintage finds, small batch imports and an array of the best boutique wallpaper and fabric vendors set Harbinger apart. They carry top notch special lines from Katie Ridder fabrics and wallpapers, Italian Idarica Gazzoni's exotic prints, John Stefanidis prints charming, Pintura Studio, Prints Etc, Sister Parrish, to Holland and Sherry and more.


A Colleen and Company Blue Tortoise Coffee Table anchors a seating area with their neo-wing chair, Swedish and floral four panel folding screen.

The eclectic mix of styles makes the thrill of discovery a shopping adventure. Their Plaisir Relax Chair with a white frame sits to the left in a Prints Etc. fabric.

The custom Vreeland Settee in a small geo for big style. The small rolled arm is a classic yet contemporary touch.

A pair of Oslo painted armchairs in front of the Walnut bed made up in Hillary Thomas bedding.

The armchair is upholstered coordinated pale green fabric and green frame can be done in COM like most of their custom pieces.

A work table where samples can be mixed and matched with a plaster chandelier hanging above. A fancy silhouette is taken to a casual place with the finish treatment- chic!

Fine thin walled porcelain tabletop with color-lined teacups adds an artisanal, handmade allure.

Get to work! The work table in a dark wood doubles as a desk for display and productivity. The Large Oak Bamboo Chair in a bright pomegranate fabric adds some zing. Low bowls with a wash of color inside provide an unexpected color surprise.

The Harbinger-designed Oyster Bay Console Table in the window with plaster and ceramic watering cans from Italy and a swirled Brushstoke Lamp from Beeline Home. A Katie Ridder on the wall ties the lamp to the palette.

Their Antwerp Sofa with channel tufted back and tight seat done in a deep apricot velvet.

A super chic four poster bed dons bed custom embroidered hangings of Holland and Sherry fabrics.

Striking and graphic, these black and white bowls are handmade in Italy.

Beeline Home has a new home in Harbinger. Their wood-framed armchair is covered in a geometric fabric from Idarica Gazzoni.

A Beeline Home Chair flanks a seating arrangement.

Boldly hued fabrics from Amanda Nisbet light up the fabric area. Displayed on easy access hangers, full widths make viewing a snap.

Those Beeline Home lamps are haunting me - I may need to take the plunge.
