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.
Black Dog Home is a storefront on N. Main in downtown High Point. Operating as a design studio, retail store, and coffee bar, the light-filled space is filled with examples of Beck’s dining and occasional table designs and other unique pieces. It is here where he also meets with clients.
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.
