Caning Chairs

Seat Repair: Caned, Rush & Splint Ash

Caning chairs is somewhat of a dying art. It is becoming increasingly more difficult to find someone who has not only learned how to cane chairs but is able to do it correctly.  Here at the Broom and Basket Shop we offer the service of caning chairs as well as repairing splint ash & rush seats.  Our employees have a combined 40+ years of experience in repairing seats woven with many various materials.  Below are a few pictures of a few of our most popular patterns used when we repair chairs.  We are also able to alter these patterns and re-create the original weave of a seat that is brought to us by our customers.  If you do not see a pattern listed here, please contact us via email or phone and we can discuss your particular repair need.
