Lucy Trimarco has been painting walls, re-finishing and re-arranging furniture since she was 10 years old. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in Interior Design, from The International Academy of Design & Technology, Chicago, then continued studies at The Art Institute of Chicago and The University of Chicago in business, graphic and web development. 

Lucy started her interiors career at VOA Associates, and then moved onto OWP&P, Partners by Design and The Environments Group. Lucy has also consulted at Perkins & Will, Lieber Group, TKA Partners and McCann Associates among others.  She has developed interiors for commercial offices, showrooms, schools and retail spaces.  Her most recent projects are Herman Miller Showrooms in New York and Atlanta, which have LEED Gold Certification.

In 2001, Lucy became a Registered Interior Designer and started her small business, luc.ID, Inc., which led her down a road of interiors, web design and product development consulting for furniture manufacturers, corporate clients and retail stores.

Lucy started her teaching career at The International Academy of Design & Technology and then joined Harrington College of Design in 1998 when she was asked to teach a 3D_AutoCAD Class.  Recently, she became a full-time instructor and will be teaching technology classes within the graduate and undergraduate departments.  Her focus is inspiring students to use software as a visual tool (starting from paper) to sell future designs to their clients.

Her spare time is spent volunteering for the United Cerebral Palsy – Toyland which raises money to purchase toys for disadvantaged children in the Chicago-land area.  She has also helped transform the interior of the Jane Adams Home on Taylor for their first open house for the National Public Housing Museum. Lucy’s affiliations include NCIDQ, LEED AP ID+C, and IDEC.
