The Cane and Rush Restoration Company


(Please apply for caning trade prices via contact page…)


*Please note that on account of an increase in material prices, I now make a separate charge for materials according to the size of chair. For those chairs that have been offered a quote, I will stick to my original price estimate!


Cane Seating *(see above)

Small simple chairs, such as cane bedroom chairs, nursing chairs etc. are priced at £1.10 – £1.35 per hole (depending on chair) up to 100 holes.
100 holes or more £1.35 – £1.50 per hole (depending on chair) up to 150 holes.

Larger pieces will be priced individually.

An average bedroom chair will thus cost about £80 – £90 to re-cane + material which would add approximately £10.00 – £15.00

Spiderbacks / Medallion Backs priced as seen, as are library or tub chairs but average out at about £1.75 – £2.00 per hole.

Sheet cane priced at between £65 and £80 per chair panel depending on type and size, prices increase for larger panels such as radiator covers etc.

Staining of cane is free on smaller panels, but for larger panels a charge of £10 is applied.

Danish Cord chair seat replacement:

Side chairs £125.00 for simple side chairs.

Side chairs with double rails £140.00.

Hans Wegner Wishbone chairs £150.00

Large easy chairs (see gallery) £650.00


Rush Chairs

Average size ladder or spindle back rush side chairs from £150.00; carvers are priced at between  £175.00 for a small example and  £200.00 for larger carvers.

‘Reel rush’ i.e. pre-woven rush from a spool costs £120 for an average side chair and £150 for an average arm chair.

Paper rush is £120 for side chairs and £150 for carvers.

Prices for rush chairs are for standard gauge rush, and finer rushed items will be priced according to how fine the rush is.

I am always happy to give a rough estimate on what larger pieces will cost to re-seat over the phone or by email, but will usually only give a definitive quote once I have seen the piece.
