Chair Caning / Re-Caning

I will undertake complete chair caning or re-caning and consider cane chair repair work by re-weaving to patch damaged areas. Please get in touch for an estimate of total cost for the restoration work to be undertaken.

I prefer to see the existing chair weaving in place if possible, enabling me to assess the original weave patterns and materials. Please send photographs of the chair, showing the front and back of the woven area, to [email protected] or arrange to show me the chair by calling 0792 641 8523. I am based in Brighton & Hove, Sussex.

Why should you re-cane chairs?

Re-caning the seat, back or sides can restore an un-usable damaged chair to a functional item of furniture. In many cases bringing a much loved family chair or heirloom back into regular use, extending its lifetime.
