LUTHER TANLEY

Owner, One Of The Top Architectural And Landscape Lighting Designers In The Southeast.  

Our Story

Born and raised in the greater Nashville area, Luther has always been passionate about the art of lighting design. On one fateful day, Luther quit his day job and went onwards to pursue his dream to become a lighting designer. Now Luther is the proud owner and founder of Lumenate. This company aspires to brighten up peoples’ businesses, homes, and lives. Luther now lives happily in Brentwood, Tennesse with his wife Tamara and their four children Emily, Lola, Mia, and Case.

For me, creating beautiful lighting is an art.

Three years ago I finally decided to leave my day job and pursue my passion for lighting full time. Giving everything I have to honing my craft was, and continues to be, one of the proudest and most fulfilling decisions I ever made.
