  1. Robert,

    I have several rattan seats with cane backing. The cane backing needs repair. This are low backed, rounded chairs that swivel. Do you have an estimate of the cost to recane the chair backs? Would I need to deliver them to you?

    Thank you,

    • Hi Francine.. Are you able to send me a couple of pictures of the caning? If so, take one from the front, and one from the back.. It will help me see what kind of caning it is, so I can figure out a price.

      P.S. We do offer pick up and delivery, but It’s always less expensive to bring the chairs to us..

  2. Hi,
    We have a rocking chair with a caned seat that is in worse condition than the one in you before photo, but the pattern looks exactly the same. The dimensions of the seat are ~ 18″ X17″ although it is not exactly square. Could you give me an estimate or a range of cost to have the seat recaned? Thank you,

    • Hi Julie. It doesn’t matter how bad the damage is, you have to replace all of the cane in either case.
      If it is hand woven single strand cane, you would count the holes around the edge of the seat where the cane is woven through the seat. then multiply that by $2. per hole. plus $15 if if needs to be tinted to match the old color.
      If it is pre-woven sheet cane, you measure diaganally across the seat, and multiply the inches by $4.50 plus the tinting charge.

      I hope this helps you out.
      Thank you
      Robert Bessone

  3. Good morning,
    My boss has a chair that sits by his desk and the caning has frayed on the side. What do I need to do in order to get an estimate for repair?
    Can I send a picture to you so you can review it?
