LEARNING THE ANCIENT ART OF CHAIR CANING
I just began a class and in a few weeks I will have completely caned a chair seat! I have to say it is quite a relaxing and enjoyable task. While time intensive, it is quite a simple and straightforward process compared to upholstery. And caned furniture always makes me long for the British Colonial era, sitting on some Neoclassical veranda with a cool cocktail dressed in white linen...
I was happy to stumble over this quite excellent Apartment Therapy article about the history of caned furniture.
Stay tuned for the final result soon!
