OLAIO is part of the affective and material heritage of several generations of Portuguese. Between the mid-1930s and the late 1980s, furniture built by OLAIO was not only seen in many homes, but also in the post offices, hospitals, schools, ministries, public offices, hotels, theatres, cafes, in Portuguese movies and even in Parliament. A part of the history of the country sits on the chairs of the company founded by José Olaio still in the nineteenth century.
2016 was the year of re-launch of OLAIO – the beginning of a new production of high quality Portuguese furniture.
OLAIO products are locally handmade in Portugal, by experienced wood artisans, committed to create high quality furniture pieces. These pieces are created to perfection, responsibly and ethically, for a more sustainable tomorrow.
