About Solomon Bly

Solomon Bly are dealers in 17th- to 20th-centuries English and American furniture and works of art, specialising in the period from 1660 to 1760, with a particular emphasis on design, craftsmanship, untouched colour and patination. They also deal in fine and decorative arts, bespoke furniture, and offer a full interior and architecture consultancy.

The business is led by Julian Bly, who has been dealing in antiques for over 20 years. After university, Julian pursued a career in interior design and property, for many years working extensively in North America. Since 1994 he has also advised several private collections, written and lectured on antiques and interiors, and dealt in English & American furniture. As well as being the ultimate way to individually furnish a home, Julian sees antique furniture as beautiful sculptural pieces in their own right.

With a tradition of five generations of antiques dealers before him, Julian launched Solomon Bly to consolidate his knowledge and expertise. The company name pays homage to this first recognised dealer in the Bly family, who began dealing in 1831.
