Square Nail is a custom furniture store in Andersonville Chicago, dedicated to creating unique designs from reclaimed materials. They take their name from the antique nails they pull from the wood.
Founded by two Chicago-bred brothers Mike and Dan Wynne, Square Nail sources wood such as walnut, white & red elm, oak, and pine from knocked down factories and abandoned barns. The knotty, warped, nail-punctured boards, brings appreciated beauty and personality to each piece they create. Other found materials such as metal, and glass add history and texture to their work.
Collaborating with stain glass artist, hand wood turner, and 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 unique designs that range from clean & sleek to 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 would love to work with you to create a custom piece. Everything is done onsite and the customer can be involved in every step of the process.
