Cane Corner

Established in 1985, we at Cane Corner specialise in restoring battered family heirlooms back to their original condition. We can re-seat most antique and modern furniture to a professional standard using split cane and rush, and other durable materials. No matter how bad the condition of your item is when it enters our workshop, we guarantee that they will always leave in a much better state of repair.

What we do:

  • Chair restoration
  • Re-seating chairs
  • Chair repairs
  • Chair polishing

We undertake all restoration projects for chairs and other curiosities in all their guises using different seating methods and materials. Our learning was done on the job, thus giving us a wealth of knowledge and experience to develop our skills into a successful local business. We place emphasis on the importance of re-seating a chair with the best materials that it was originally designed to receive.

Many companies use the wrong type of material when fixing chairs, usually due to cost, however we offer very reasonable rates and use only the highest quality materials. The range of materials we use includes: Split Cane, Sea grass, Rush (which we harvest ourselves in the West Country), Rope, Shaker tape, Danish Cord, Leather thronging and many others.

Reviews & Testimonials:

Thank you so much for such a beautiful repair to our Danish cane magazine shelf. You used beautifully matched cane and stained it to blend in. It was a joy to watch such craftsmanship in action.

Brigitte’s craftsmanship is absolutely outstanding. She used Ilminster rushes that she actually harvested herself to restore my chair. She also re-glued it. Brigitte is very busy, and my chair was gone for quite some time, but it was worth it as it returned looking superb.

Brigitte re-caned my old Danish rocking chair with great attention to detail and care to replicate the original weave. She also arranged to return my chair to me locally for a small fee when it was finished. Great craftsmanship and an affordable price. Thank you!

Please do not hesitate to get in contact with us for further information on any of our services – we would love to hear from you!
