Several years ago, Omahans Brandon Beed and Nick Huff began thrifting furniture, repurposing it, and selling it. They called their concept Hutch. It became so popular that demand outstripped supply, so they began adding modern furniture, accessories, and design services. Last year they expanded to KC and opened a shop in the Crossroads.
Abbie Smith, the point person for the KC store, says, “It’s a great spot to be in; Crossroads is blowing up right now.” Although many customers are from downtown and Crossroads to Midtown, Smith says the shop draws from Brookside and Johnson County too. “Anyone who’s looking for that clean-lined, modern look for their home.”
Hutch is known for a fresh, minimal aesthetic. “Our furniture sits low to the ground,” Smith says. “a cozy, but still modern feel.” Accessories—including rugs, pillows, ceramics, candles, lamps, and more—have a warm, Scandinavian vibe and often feature local makers.
