Publisher Dean Horowitz chats with the Samieian family, where they started, where they are and where they’re going with Moe's Home Collection.
Moe’s was founded by Moe Samieian Sr. in Vancouver, BC in 1986 as a retailer of fine rugs and furniture, and in 1999, Moe’s opened its wholesale operation based in San Francisco. With representation in every home décor category - from furniture and accent rugs to lighting, wall décor and decorative accents - Moe’s has become a one-stop source for the right merchandise at the right price.
In 2000 Moe’s evolved as a family business with Sara Samieian and Moe Samieian Jr joining their parents and together they expanded the business which is now operating four retail stores and recently celebrated its first Moe’s Home Collection licensed location. To meet demand from our U.S. customers, the Wholesale division is now based in Seattle, WA. In addition, we exhibit in four Major USA shows (High Point, Las Vegas, Atlanta & Dallas).

This area tends to be a design-trend leader, a perfect example of how this trend impacts the outdoor furniture industry. Municipalities across the country have moved to smaller lots. It's caused architects to start using the outdoors to make the home feel bigger. That's part of what the outdoor living market is all about.
