Our Story

Plank & Pearl, like most entrepreneurial projects, began as a seed of an idea that took root over time and went through several conceptual changes along the way. Always rooted in the love of vintage furniture, tableware, and décor, owner Coleen Hubbard combined her life-long love of collecting with her twin passion of creating beautiful and meaningful life celebrations of every kind.

Today, Plank & Pearl offers its unique and curated rental collections for weddings and events in the Denver area, as well as locations in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The business is located in a historic Lakewood building, the first retail location of the iconic Vitamin Cottage!

Our mission is based on three simple beliefs:

  1. Outstanding customer service that honors and respects each client’s vision and needs. We’ve been known to help a client figure out how to get a velvet settee to a remote location or create the perfect fine china tea party for a gathering of young girls. We are committed to exceeding our customers’ expectations and making sure their celebrations are everything they imagined.
  2. Supporting sustainability through the re-use of material goods. We take pride in knowing that nothing in our inventory is “disposable” or will end up in a landfill. Choosing vintage goods is the ultimate recycling!
  3. Making creativity the focal point of our brand. There are many good rental companies from which to choose, but what sets us apart is our creative skills and knowledge. We recently curated a special collection of pieces for a “Friday the 13th ” October wedding at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. We didn’t see any ghosts, but loved the spooky/creepy atmosphere we helped design! We pride ourselves on problem-solving, including working with a wide range of budgets, styles, and particular needs.

Being a part of your celebration is the heart of our company. In a complicated and busy society, taking the time to dream, plan, execute or host a memorable occasion is a beautiful gift—and our ultimate goal.

Vintage Rentals

Meet Coleen

OWNER/COLLECTOR

Coleen has spent her career as a “serial creative,” moving fluidly among her passions of acting, writing, filmmaking, design, and crafting. As a long-time collector of vintage treasures, she finds joy in the art of thrifting and picking, and will happily line up early for a promising estate sale. After helping design her daughter’s wedding with some of her vintage collections, she fell in love with the process and began creating and growing a rental business.

She’s addicted to coffee, loves to walk with her husband and rescue dog Otis, and spend time with her three grown daughters. To relax, you’ll likely find her with a glass of good red wine, binging on television series from England and Australia.

Meet Julie

Director of Operations

Julie joined Plank & Pearl in 2017 and has revolutionized our business with her unmatched organizational skills. She's fallen in love with vintage and design and truly enjoys being part of our creative team.

When she's not at Plank & Pearl, Julie loves to work in her garden, watch classic movies, and go on walks with Gracie, her adorable Bernese Mountain Dog. She takes classes every chance she gets in subjects ranging from artistic welding to calligraphy. More than anything else, she loves spending time with her family and traveling to places near and far with her husband.

Prior to Plank & Pearl, Julie spent 15 years in the corporate world as a paralegal for a large international law firm. Before becoming a paralegal, she enjoyed a variety of careers, among them as an entrepreneur/creator/owner and manager of a successful event planning business.
