Beck in Williamsburg

Tucked away in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Beck and Lainey reside with their newborn and their pit bull, Sonny. Built in 1930, their apartment sits in an old foundry, and was originally purchased at city auction in 1980. Drawn to the “honest and functional nature of industrial or high-traffic products,” Beck and Lainey wanted to honor the industrial heritage of the building and collaborated with designer Adam Bierton to realize this vision. Works from Uprise artists Abby Goodman, Eric LoPresti, Bo Kim, and Erin Lynn Welsh complete their eclectic and artful home.

“We moved out here for this apartment. It was love at first sight, really. We walked in and said: 'yep.'”

“We wanted to honor the industrial heritage of the building. We like the honest and functional nature of industrial or high-traffic products. There is something confident and minimalist about their look and feel.”

“The building was originally a workspace, so for functional reasons they designed it with window after window. We get great light, in the morning in particular, when it blasts in. It nearly knocks you over when you come out of the bedroom. ”

“I am a sucker for strong imagery, so I collected a lot of photos at first. I wanted to add in some painting to balance it out, which was where the Erin Lynn Welsh and Bo Kim works came in.”

“We ripped up the floor in the powder room, adding in mosiac tile floors and flavorpaper in 'Brooklyn toile.' A Duke Riley drawing hangs above the toilet. ”
