The seed for LUONGO+ABLACK was planted when two strangers met at a dinner party, connected and forged a friendship on a foundation of mutual respect and a love of all things creative. Discovering they shared passion for travel, art, fashion, design and entrepreneurship, Lisa + Patrice launched LUONGO+ABLACK in 2015.


Conceived as a design/staging company, L+A has furnished properties for a multitude of diverse clients. Their versatility and creativity within the broad spectrum of architectural and interior design styles, has earned them a space in the design landscape.

Discovering a void, they seized the opportunity to diversify the business to cater to the hardworking successful man, lacking the time and possibly the inspiration to design and create a home for himself. INHABIT was established to fill this void and set the partnership on a new path.



Lisa’s belief is simple… “Your home should be your sanctuary.” With over twenty years’ experience in interior design, she has found her niche working with single, business-minded men who desire a comfortable and refined space in which to live and entertain. Her aesthetic compliments the masculine look desired by her male clients, making the final collaborative design easy and seamless. Lisa has worked with a wide variety of clientele on projects ranging from simply stylized office spaces to multi-million dollar homes. Her background in fashion design lends a special dedication to rich textiles and color, and her love of travel contributes to the diversity in her style. Lisa has gained a solid reputation for her professionalism and discretion when working with her professional clients. Her close attention to the gentleman’s lifestyle and persona has earned her both their trust and their respect.


Born in the Caribbean and “schooled” in Europe, North America and through extensive global travel, Patrice is a woman of the world. Her diverse and cultured background has influenced both her personal and professional style, fusing her intuitive flare for design with her exquisite good taste.

Patrice is experienced in business, hospitality, project management and entrepreneurship. She worked at top restaurants in NYC, conceptualized and executed themed launches for a leading US retail chain, and co owned the Manhattan Country Club, California, where she collaborated with chefs on menus, décor, special events and hosted a high profile tennis tournament for several years. These competencies along with her vivacious spirit, professionalism and eye for detail, inspire confidence, create trust and exceed the expectations of even the most discerning clients.
