The only thing that comes to mind for me, would be an article of clothing-like item. People once used solid objects to simultaneously decorate, and fasten things like sashes and ropes, to hold clothing in place, for either people, or furniture.

This could be one of those decorative tie-points, sort of like a large wooden button. The cloth or rope would be wrapped around and over the unfinished part in the middle, and the rough square part would serve to provide locking friction to keep the cloth in place.
