hutch started a little over 3 years ago, June 1, 2013, with Nick and Brandon finding a hutch on Craigslist in Lincoln for $40. They had to borrow Brandon’s dads truck to retrieve it, and this is what inevitably sparked hutch the brand. From there, the boyfriend duo, collected vintage mid-century modern furniture, hoarded if you will. After 6 months of collecting, they opened their first retail store, only open on the weekends, in Omaha’s Old Market. Two months later they reopened in Midtown Crossing with regular business hours, but still just focused on their vintage finds. In February 2015, hutch re-opened again at its current location in one of the flagship bays on the Midtown Crossing campus at 33rd and Farnam, expanding their offerings of new furniture and local maker designs, while still mixing in their vintage furniture and accessory finds.
