About us

    Foursided began it’s journey in 2001 by merging several of our founder’s loves–the world of art and framing with paper and beautiful gifts.

    We strive to cultivate communities that enjoy art, whether it’s framing a showcase work of art for your home or the art of giving a handcrafted card or vintage gift. We are a resource for those who appreciate art and its sentimental value, as well as for advancing select independent artisans and makers.

    Our founders opened the original 2939 N Broadway location in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood using their own ingenuity to create a welcoming picture framing gallery. We are now part of a thriving block of independent retailers and have since added two more locations. The second location is also in Lakeview at 2958 N Clark and is focused on cards, gifts, art, and vintage goods. Our third location at 5061 N Clark in Andersonville is our largest location, where we welcome you to escape for hours into a wonderland of Foursided’s best.

    Today we have a wonderful team whose mission is to bring each of our guest’s imagination to life with art, custom framing, curated gifts, ephemera, and vintage objects.

    Please stop by and say hello. Bring your dog, too!
