"One of my favorite short stories begins with a single word sentence, Twilight. Economy in craft still leaves the mark of the tailor. Anton Chekhov's two-page story 'Twilight' turns words anew to share an old human haunt. His writing has inspired me for 20 years. Cheers to Anton! The simple lines of the Anton chair take precision and time to cut and curve at the workbench. So, sit if you will, and tip a sip to the tailor." – Brandon Marcoux-Tully, Designer.
The name Hatched comes from one nervy night when Brandon and Debra chose to launch a collaboration in furniture design. The two make for an incredible team; both scrappy, from blue collar families, but refined with a love of art, music and design. From a family of designers, architects, artists and builders, Brandon applies his love for both the contemporary and the classic to designing and building furniture. Debra brings her experience and education in contemporary art to the design of each piece. Educated at Sotheby's in London, she is currently the Director of an established New York art gallery. New York City is the birthplace and inspiration for Hatched designs. The pace, the hub-bub, the frenetic go-go of the city coincided with many new beginnings for the couple and consequently led to a desire for a pinch of quiet, a respite, a place to call home. They draw inspiration from the sentiment of home and a desire to carve out quiet hamlets from urban life, designing furniture that is beautiful, simple and affable. Beginning from Mid-century design's Minimalist sophistication, Hatched tilts, bends and pops to communicate not so much the stainless-steel jet of progress but rather a place in which to reflect and or play. It is this simple equation of taking contemporary design and building it with a favorite well honed chisel, that you come to affable sophistication. Bench made isn't just an adherence to traditional craftsmanship and standards, or a new marketing flavor; For us, it is the other half of the aesthetic.
