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!

  1. I've seen where someone, on some blog, painted some kind of fabric, on some chair, with some kind of fabric paint. No removing fabric necessary. Hope this helps....even if it is too late for this fab chair!

  2. I love this chair so much. I must find one! It's going at the top of my "Miracle Finds" list!
