Moses Otunla Biography – Moses Otunla Wiki
Moses Otunla is an antiques dealer on BBC One’s The Bidding Room and artistic director of Bleu furniture, a creative interior design and mid-century furniture store based in Herne Hill, South London. Established in 1996, Bleu furniture source mid-century modern, 20th century design, decorative art, vintage industrial furniture, vintage African masks and art.
Moses started an annual design event, The Modern Movement, in 2008. Since setting up the event, he has used his circle of industry contacts to pull together a top notch group of vintage furniture suppliers, including the companies Retro Barn, Dad Design and ID for London.
“I started the Movement with a lady who used to be the art coordinator for the Lido,” Moses told Brixton Blog. “We came up with the idea to connect furniture and architecture, and began by collaborating with students from Camberwell College of Art.”
“It was a hard idea to pitch, as you can imagine,” he added. “When you’re trying to convince someone to spend their weekend at a lido with their furniture, the first question they always ask is, what happens if it rains?!”
Moses is of African origin and deals in West African artifacts that can include masks, beautiful craved figures and Benin Bronzes.
“My granny in Nigeria knits my hats for me,” Moses told That’s Not My Age. “Every time I go she has three or four waiting.”
