Interview with Curtis Vertefeuille | Owner of Moe’s Victoria

July 3, 2019

Earlier this week we sat down for a chat with Curtis Vertefeuille, owner of Moe’s Victoria, our first ever licensee store. We wanted to learn a bit more about his story as well as the various forces that inspire him to do what he does.

Tell us about yourself.

I have daughter who is 22 years old, she lives in Vancouver. I moved from there to the Island about 4 years ago. Just recently, I moved from Sooke to Victoria and now live only a parking lot away from the store which is pretty convenient.

What got you interested in working with MOE’S?

Home décor and interior design have always been a passion of mine. I have a background in textiles and had been working in this area for about 10 years prior to starting at Moe’s. It seemed like a great opportunity to gain even more experience in the design and home furnishing industry.

How long have you been working with the MOE’S family?

Just over 10 years.

5 adjectives to describe the brand

  • Family oriented
  • Trendy
  • Diverse
  • Inspiring
  • Grounded

Favourite interior design trend?


I also love the singer P!nk. Are you sensing a theme?

Favourite MOE’S product?

Glamour Bison Antique Brass

What made you want to open your own store?

I was moving to the island and didn’t want to work somewhere else after my time at Moe’s. I was going to open a store called James Curtis home and sell wholesale goods but about 3 weeks before we opened I got a call from Moe Jr who suggested that I open up a Moe’s store instead. The rest is history.

What do you love about Victoria?

People are nice, like really nice, it’s so crazy. Sometimes I wonder if there’s something wrong with them.  The food scene here is also fantastic!

Favourite thing to do in Victoria?

Try new restaurants, my favourite at the moment is The Brasserie. Oh and also work

Where do you get your style inspiration?

I was born with it (laughs). I tend to march to the beat of my own drum. I don’t follow trends, I’m my own trend.

Favourite place to travel?

I loved my time in Colombia. The people are so nice and the food is amazing! My dream destination is Italy and after that I would love to explore the rest of Europe

Anything else?
