Donald Beck was born into a large family and raised in Michigan. Donald’s big family gave him the unique ability to understand family-friendly spaces. He spent the last 15 years in the Washington, D.C. Design Market. He has had the privilege of designing beautiful interiors in the United States as well as internationally. Donald is particularly passionate about listening to his clients, and is able to bring a broad spectrum of projects to life. He is both quick and capable when his clients have to design on a timeline.
In his free time, he is a lover of baseball, hockey and his American bulldog, Cooper.
My husband and I bought a beautiful sofa and two rugs this spring under the skillful eye and gentle guidance of Donald Beck. We think of Donald as an interior designer rather than a salesman. His senses of color, style, and proportion are all superb. He also might be the most patient person in the world! One Sunday afternoon, having chosen our sofa with Donald’s help, we went back to choose rugs for the living room and dining room. I looked at every rug TWICE, all the while chatting with Donald about what might work and why.
In the end, we went with the rugs he had initially suggested, but it took me about two hours to decide that he had been right after all. Throughout this long afternoon, he was completely relaxed, cheerful, and very helpful. Our 76-year-old house has received a new lease on life! We’ll definitely be going directly back to Donald when we want to buy new furnishings. - Judy C.
