Designer Jamie Beckwith challenges the way people think about wood as a surfacing material in interiors.

A trendsetter in luxury interior design, Beckwith is shaking up the male dominated wood industry with her fluid and feminine wooden patterns. Substituting straight lines for curves and creating shapes in lieu of planks, her patterns are reshaping expectations, both literally and figuratively.

Beckwith’s Variations Collection, created in collaboration with Jeff Andrews, stemmed out of a passion for dance and rhythm along with a deep appreciation for sculpture and its ability to ground a space. As former professional dancers, Beckwith and Andrews are inspired by designs that emulate motion, as well as ones that have the ability to turn a flat surface into a dimensional work of art.

Beckwith’s fashion-forward sensibility and eye for details is exemplified in the Couture Collection, a design collaboration between the Jamie Beckwith Collection and Windsor Smith. This inventive wood surfacing collection for walls and floors redefines iconic patterns, ranging from traditional chevrons to cubist-inspired trompe l’oeil parquets, and includes exquisite details like perfect seams and metal embellishments.
