Local designer Alexis Dodd (North Vancouver) is the force behind Steelwood Design. Her goal is to create functional art for the home through sustainable design – Reusing, Recycling, Reclaiming and Repurposing. She has a passion for beautiful, unique design and clean, simple lines that convey the essence of the material.

Each piece is an individual with its own story, rich local history, and handcrafted by Alexis herself. The extraordinary one-of-a-kind pieces are destined to be the focal point of any room. Every one celebrates natural beauty marks like knots, grains and other imperfections, only found in hand crafted art.


1Through our eyes…who knew a rusty piece of shipyard chain or an old fir plank could be transformed into a beautiful work of art! We see it in every discarded piece of material we have the good fortune to come across – let us share our vision with you.

Hand Crafted

2 Each and every Steelwood design celebrates natural beauty marks like knots, grains and other imperfections, only found in authentic wood and steel with powerful character. Materials are all hand-picked (literally!) and hand crafted into our stunning, limited edition designs.

Sustainable Design

3All of Steelwood designs are made from reclaimed and salvaged wood and steel from many different Vancouver and North Shore places and spaces. Each piece is an “individual” with its own story and a rich local history. Reincarnated and revitalized using simple clean lines and a modern urban form – if these pieces could talk!
