1960’s Tango Chairs Produced By Overman AB

Mel and I had the good fortune to come across these at one of our favorite haunts. We knew what they were right when we saw them. We are so excited to get a matching set of four.

I love the simplicity and functionality these offer.

The Overman Company began production in Sweden, before reloctating (under the same name) to Lüneburg, Germany.  In the early 1960’s, the company produced some very cool  pieces, which are very collectable and rare.

These chairs have a lot going for them: they are light, when stacked can offer a small footprint and they have a unique design.

Mel and I are debating if they will be added to our collection or if they will end up in our shop, we will let you know!

Here are some other fantastic pieces Overman AB produced…

Our Alameda Point Antiques Faire Finds

alameda

Mel and I were up at 2:30am this morning getting ready and driving to the largest antiques show in Northern California. We love Alameda because of the size of the faire and the scenic views. You can see the heart of S.F. from almost any point around the faire.  The weather was great today, and added to the enjoyment of the day.

Here are the fruits of our labor!

This Craig radio and speakers is really cool. If you look closely, you can see orange plastic behind the speakers and radio. I love the accent of that against the dark wood. We also managed to find the really cool hourglass.

These jacks are huge. They are made of resin, thank god because if they were metal I am not sure I could lift them! We purchased these courtesy of FandFVintage.

This is a vintage red pod chair. We are unable to find anything about the maker of this piece. I have a yellow chair that will go with this that I cannot substantiate either. If anybody knows the maker, we’d be interested in knowing.
