This chair is over 100 years old. Sadly many like this get thrown into landfill. This one has been saved. I have ensured that that the joints are firm and free from wobbles.
It has character and I believe was worth saving. I have replaced the Rattan caned Seat using the original traditional 7 stage method and will last for decades to come. Floor to top of back 8 3cm. Floor to seat height 4 3cm. Seat width at front 41cm.
Seat width at back 31.5cm. The wood has a rich patina and stunning accents making a very sweet chair.
Fabulous Retro design which will fit beautifully in the modern retro home. Perfect for the vintage, or contemporary home and an ideal addition to any interior. Check out my Facebook page retroandteak mid Century Furniture and if you like my furniture, like my page.
Only 5 minutes walk from Tube. It will easily fit in a car but you can arrange your own courier.
Avoid putting cane in hot dry sunny rooms or next to sources of heat. Low humidity will dry out the cane and make it brittle.Varnishing, painting or lacquering is not recommended as it seals the cane and doesnt not allow it to breathe or absorb moisture from the air. To restore moisture to Rattan you can safely wet it with a wet sponge, obviously avoid wetting wooden parts of the furniture. To prolong the life of a caned seat, tighten the cane periodically. Cane has a certain amount of stretch or sag, which allows for the additional stress of someone sitting.
After some months of use, cane will begin to lose its memory and the sag will remain. When the cane can stretch no more, it will begin to wear against the edge of the chair or strands will break in the centre.By rewetting the cane with warm water and a sponge on the underside (non glossy side of the cane) and letting it dry slowly over night, you can restore its original tightness.
