Restoration, Reclamation, Repurposing, and Custom Carpentry from Chicago, Illinois.


Found, Loved, Beautified

There are four facets to Against the Grain.  Restoration, Reclamation, Repurposing, and Custom Carpentry.  These four elements combine to form a unique mix of shared history, created memories and legendary stories.  The elements connect us to our roots, while allowing for artistic expression based in sustainability and preservation.

We opened Against the Grain in 2014, selling a unique collection of custom pieces and  restored antiquities.  On the weekdays (and sometimes the weekends) Scott can be found scouring the upper Midwest for items he can reclaim like wood boards from old barns.  Scott does all this because he loves it.  And when you combine passion, hard work, and skill, you have a the winning combination.
