Olive & Olive
Olive & Olive’s hand-finished antique
flooring and paneling has been described as
“historic”. Across the globe,
countries protect their great treasures. Architecture
and interior design which is hundreds of years
old is turned into museums to protect the
unparalleled craftsmanship from another time.
This, in essence, is Olive & Olive’s
work. It is a product so spectacular that
it will be considered just such a treasure
by generations yet to come. But you needn’t
wait hundreds of years before you appreciate
its value. It’s available now.
Olive & Olive, Inc. was founded in 1986
by Martha and Joe Olive. Joe started wood
floor refinishing as a part-time job while
studying at Atlanta’s Georgia Institute
of Technology, drawn to the challenge of the
craftsmanship required by this type of work.
He soon expanded his work into floor installation
and more complicated designs as the owner
of a small wood floor contracting company.
In 1986, Olive & Olive was born, giving
Joe the ability to get back to a “hands-on”
approach. Joe still enjoys performing all
aspects of the floor work, from working with
clients to developing the look, and from fabricating
and finishing the components to installing
and completing the job. His pride in attention
to detail and schedule is unmatched.
As one Olive & Olive customer described,
“he won’t do it unless he can
do it right”.
