As the third generation to turn wood and build furniture in his family, one might say the trade is in Steven Beck’s DNA. While his great-grandfather built frames for a local High Point manufacturer, it was his granddad, John Arnold Beck, who taught Beck the craft hands-on.
Beck launched his own woodworking studio Black Dog Home in 2019. His work spans styles from modern farmhouse to European-inspired to custom. Often inspired by reclaimed materials, he and his team craft and assemble everything by hand locally in High Point, collaborating often with designers and other manufacturers. From consult to design, including milling and kiln-drying its own lumber, Black Dog Home can pretty much furnish every room in the house.
Perhaps, you’ve wondered how the name came about? Beck’s father is a veterinarian and “Black Dog Home” pays homage to a lifelong love of animals instilled by his dad, as well as his first dog, a Black Lab named Sailor.
Beck exhibits at the Design Legacy showroom in High Point. To discuss a custom furniture design or to see examples of Beck’s work anytime during the year, reach out to him for an appointment.
