Designing Spaces You'll Love for a Lifetime


We believe that a home is more than just a physical space. It's where memories are made and where family and friends come together to celebrate life's milestones. We understand the significance of having a home that reflects your family’s character and complements your lifestyle. That's why LBC Design is focused on creating a home that not only looks beautiful but feels warm and inviting.

If you’re looking for a designer who can thoughtfully, meticulously, and joyfully create a home that fits your family like a glove, you’re in the right place.

Our Top Three Beliefs

K.G. | South Orange, NJ

"I am thrilled to recommend Laura Carlucci. Having Laura's help is like having your own space and design guru who also knows the ins and outs of construction - what can be done and what shouldn't be. She made recommendations based on our existing structures, and that helped keep demolition and construction costs down. She knows how to communicate with your contractor to get the job finished right, and has vast knowledge of every type of fixture, surface and finish. Laura has a great sense of space and how it gets used in everyday life. She is smart and practical, while recommending ways to make your space more beautiful. We love our new bathrooms - Thank you, Laura!"
