Our Story

Our philosophy: 

To design furniture and objects that are distilled to the point of invisibility.  Leaving only the most fundamental aspects to function quietly dignifying their sheer simplicity. 

How is this possible? 

A very simple comparison is all that is necessary.  Think of Squared Furniture like you would Fashion.  You have a few staple pieces that you build your wardrobe around.  We’re like those perfect fitting raw denim jeans and linen shirts.  Comfortable, easy, simple and capable of making heads turn.  Our furniture sits comfortably in a variety of contexts and styles.  We’re the raw denim jeans of the furniture world.  Made for use, made for everyday, made to last. 

Our mission:

Provide handcrafted solid wood furniture and accessories that will stand up to use, time, changing trends and of course produce them as ethically and responsibly as possible.  All of our products are produced by hand in the great state of Minnesota USA.
