Cane Chair Repair

Aaron's Touch Up Furniture Repair

What is the Difference Between Chair Caning and Chair Rushing?

Chair caning is a method of weaving seats and other furniture elements. In chair caning, the material used is usually derived from the peeled bark or skin of the rattan vine found in Indonesia, the Philippines, or Malaysia. This material differs from wicker, which is usually found in baskets. Chair caning specifically refers to using rattan cane in furniture, while wicker involves weaving willow or reeds.

Chair rushing is slightly different. The rush seat weaving technique uses natural cattail leaf rush, bulrush, or a human-made paper fiber rush variety. The rush is woven around the four seat rungs of the chair (dowels), forming four distinct triangles in the seat pattern.

Why Choose Caning Repair Instead of Replacement?

Your cane and rush furniture products may be family heirlooms with cherished memories of parents or grandparents using them. Though techniques of chair rushing and cane chair repair are still practiced by some, the quality today is often not as high as is seen in vintage pieces. If you have a Victorian caned chair or a natural rushed piece, it can be valuable in many ways.
