Our Story

At Overman USA, we’ve been making stylish, comfortable furniture since 1977. From our factory located in East Tennessee, we manufacture affordable sofas, loveseats, sleepers, chairs, ottomans, and bedroom furniture for every style.

Our Products

Our affordable sofas, loveseats, sleepers, chairs, ottomans, and bedroom furniture are all incredibly unique and feature molded EPS (Expandable PolyStyrene) frames.Using revolutionary techniques developed by our founder in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s in Scandinavia, this technology produces a one-piece, light-weight, yet extremely durable furniture frame.

Our Values

Providing high-quality, comfortable, and stylish furniture is our top priority. Our unique, lightweight frames are even stronger than conventional wood frames. We’re so confident that you’ll be enjoying your pieces for many years to come that we offer a 25-year warranty on all of our frames. View our catalog.

Overman respects our impact on the future by pursuing continuous improvements, including an Energy Management Awareness Program and support for renewable energy.

Our People

Each one of our employees is dedicated to building quality furniture and providing excellent customer service. And we’re equally dedicated to them. Our longest-standing employee moved to the US from Sweden to work for Overman – and has been with us for 40 years. It’s that level of commitment that creates the quality and comfort you can expect from Overman.
