Every chair is priced as it comes in and there are no hidden extras on collection. Slight structural repairs can also be done at a small extra cost. We do not have facilities to collect or deliver chairs, so we ask you to deliver your chairs to us and collect them when the work is finished.


The most popular style of rush chair we are asked to repair is the “ladder back”, but of course any style of rush seating can be re-rushed.

We use the best quality Dutch freshwater rush and on arrival it is in shades of green and gold, but soon it ages to the familiar fawn hue. More details and some examples here.


In the split cane section we can reproduce any pattern or cane design, including rising sun, medallions, all Victorian patterns and many more. We use the best Indonesian Rattan.

We repair chairs, settees, loungers, saddle-back chairs and even the occasional bed head. More details and some examples here.


The workshop undertakes repairs to any seagrass furniture.The seagrass is the best North African. It is extremely hard wearing and especially suitable for foot stools. More details and some examples here.

Seagrass stools are also made at the workshop, and can be purchased. See the sales page for more details.

We started doing Danish Cord repairs in 2011 and they have proved very popular.
