Overman Pod chair. Modtomic loved...Cat approved. Status: Gone to New Orleans - Going Way Back.
Just picked this up yesterday (Craigslist) and looks like Kennedy (the Cold War kittie) has already staked his claim. It was already covered in some kind of animal hair so I'm letting him have his way with it for the moment.
The arms are a little faded and if I can't find a new home for it I may just keep it and fashion
some covers for the arms. I have another Overman pod chair in blue out in the garage but it
was made in Sweden, where as this one was made in Knoxville TN. Hmmm. Might do a little
research later on this. The blue one needs to be re-upholstered as there are some half dollar
size holes in its fabric. This one just needs to be de-haired with some packing tape. I got most
of it off before taking pics but it still needs more attention. These chairs are AMAZINGLY light
weight. I think the construction of the chair "body" is made of the kind of foam they make those
styrofoam cups from. It's solid but very light.
Has anybody ever "Re-dyed" upholdery before? I'm thinking I might be able to get the fabric off
pretty easily, re-dye it and put it back on. Whatcha' think? I'm open to suggestions.
Status Update: Re-Homed to New Orleans!
