Everything You Need to Know About Danish Cord Repairs

What is Danish Cord? 

Danish paper cord is a twisted paper cord used to weave seats since the 1920s.


The Danish cord is a robust 3-ply paper product estimated to last up to 60 years with regular use and proper care. See below for Danish paper cord care and maintenance. The cord is slightly waxed to resist dirt and stains. 


Danish modern furniture gained popularity after World War II in Denmark and other European countries.


Mid-century and modern Danish cord chairs are woven with the standard basket weave pattern using Danish hook nails or a no-nail technique.


The other pattern Danish cord is woven with is the traditional rushing pattern.


Chair frames are designed to accept a specific weaving style and gauge or cord size and are, therefore, not interchangeable.

What colours of Danish cord does Caning Canada Stock? 

The Danish cord is a robust 3-ply paper product estimated to last up to 60 years with regular use and proper care. See below for Danish paper cord care and maintenance. The cord is slightly waxed to resist dirt and stains. 


The beige Danish cord is in its natural state, the white Danish cord has been bleached, and the black Danish cord has been dyed.


I have recently found a heightened demand for the black Danish cord, which some folks request to modernize the look of their Danish cord pieces and provide a seat material that is less likely to show staining over time. 


That being said, the traditional beige Danish cord is also beautiful and more suited to some decors. 

New Cord vs. Vintage Cord

Danish Cord Furniture - Care


Some people spray a scotch guard on the Danish cord surfaces to stop stains from absorbing. 


If something spills on the Danish cord, use a damp cloth to clean the spill as soon as possible.


Vacuuming once in a while is always a good practice.


How to Clean Danish Paper Cord with Soap Flakes (Try at your own risk as Danish Cord is Paper)


1. Pour boiling water over soap flakes. Make sure all flakes are completely dissolved

2. Allow mixture to cool slightly

3. While the water is warm, use a soft cloth to wipe the paper cord gently. Do not get the seat too wet

4. Allow to dry and then repeat if necessary
