Chair Seating

Rush Seat 

Rush seating
I use English rush cut from the upper reaches of the Thames to repair rush seated chairs. It is important that the seat frame is sound before the chair is re-rushed and I can arrange for minor repairs to be done before chair is re-seated.

Cane seating
I re-cane chair seats, arms or backs using standard six-way or other patterns and accept commissions for curves, medallions and sun-rise chair backs. I also do close caning and loom cane seats.
