Olinde’s Furniture can trace its roots back to 1897 in Lafayette, Louisiana. The company was purchased in the late 1940’s by Joseph Olinde, who gave it the family name. The company operates a chain of furniture and mattress stores.
From a single location, the company now boasts 12 showrooms throughout the Baton Rouge/Lafayette area. Joseph Olinde was president of the company for almost 70 years before his death in 2015. The company sells a wide variety of furniture, mattresses, and other home goods.
In addition to the furniture store, the family also owns Olinde Hardware and Supply. Flooding in 2016 took out two Olinde locations, one of which was the new Ashley’s Homestore. Estimates are that the company has an annual revenue of $20 million and employs more than 100 persons full time.
