Experts in Cane & Rush Seating

Over 30 years in business

Where the love of wood never fades!


Cane was first introduced to English furniture in the late 17th century we have restored lots of furniture from this period. We have been re- caning and rush seating chairs and sofas now for 28 years. We use only the best materials available, cane from Indonesia and rush from the River Thames and the Fen Country. All patterns can be replicated and reproduced. Professionally woven cane is uniform and tightly fitted; it is of a light colour at the beginning and with time will darken with age. Staining cane is not recommended.

Rush seating is a very old craft first found on items dating back to the 14th Century in Egypt it was very popular on country made furniture in England in the late 16th Century.
