Owner, Roshi Daloui
Olive Patina owner, Roshi Daloui, was born and raised in Tehran, Iran until she was15. Art has always been part of her life, she was fortunate to grow up in a creative, artistic family. From age 13–15, Roshi attended art school in Tehran, and she has always been obsessed with furniture, home décor and making things around her useful and beautiful.
In 2016, after Roshi's second child was born, she was apprehensively thinking about going back to work in retail. Instead, she decided it was time for her to do what she loves full-time.
Roshi's love for reimagining furniture started with a $69.99 thrift store dresser, a can of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, a tin of wax, and brush. She couldn’t believe how easily she was able to transform an unloved dresser into a stunning credenza that elevated the look of her whole living room. Since her first project, Roshi has been a diehard fan of everything Annie Sloan- an amazing UK paint and finishing brand with a world-wide following. If you know Annie Sloan products, you know. If you don’t, Roshi would love to introduce you!
For several years, Roshi has successfully sold her refurbished furniture pieces in antique malls, online, and by creating custom pieces for clients- all while using her home/garage as her workspace. Roshi is thrilled to be opening her own store where she can offer beautiful furniture, home décor, and full range of Annie Sloan products. Roshi is so excited to not only sell her favorite paint and finishing products, but also host workshops to demonstrate how to use them so others can transform their own furniture.
Roshi knows that everyone has an old, outdated piece of furniture (often a family hand-me-down) that doesn’t fit with their home décor style, but they hang onto it because is a quality piece. She loves showing people that with a little bit of imagination and paint, an unloved piece of furniture can become something beautiful and functional that they will cherish having in their home… all while keeping another piece of furniture out of the landfill.
