Square Nail is a boutique furniture store in Andersonville Chicago, dedicated to creating new designs from reclaimed materials. With a shared storefront that doubles as the workshop and the showroom, they are able to create anything you can imagine for your home, office or business space.
Founded by Chicago-bred Mike Wynne, Square Nail sources wood such as walnut, white & red elm, oak, and pine from knocked- down and abandoned barns. The knotty, warped, often nail-punctured boards, bring appreciated beauty and personality to each piece they create. Other found materials such as copper tubing, rusted metal, and copper plates, add history and texture into their work.
Collaborating with a stain glass artist, hand wood turner, and an iron welder, you can find an assortment of lamps, benches, tables, butcher-blocks, kitchen islands, vanities, vases, stained glass windows, mirrors and frames. All items are uniquely designed and range from the clean & sleek, to the rustic & heavy.
But one of the most unique aspects of Square Nail is that it is divided into showroom and wood shop. While they have created a number of pieces to demonstrate skill and generate ideas, at Square Nail they love to work with their customer to create a collaborative, custom piece. Everything is done onsite and the customer can be involved in every step of the process.
